Brewed with wheat and pilsner malt; this IPA displays beautiful citrus aromas from Cascade and Citra hops that meld with the esters of Belgian yeast. Think thirst quenching hopped-up wit beer with enough IBUs to warrant the IPA name.

Hazy yellow pour with a white head and nice lacing. Nice citrusy aroma with some yeast. Taste is orange and lemon with wheat and yeast. Very easy to drink. Interesting.

Cloudy pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is malt as is the taste. Not hoppy at all? Little spiciness. OK beer.

On tap at the Common Table. Reviewed from notes. The beer pours a pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma has some nice grass and orange notes, as well as some wheat. The flavor is very similar. There is a small amount of bitterness, but there is a greater amount of orange from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation

Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a straw glow and a very thin, white head. Aroma of pale malt, wheat, yeast, coriander seed, curacao, light spices and a good amount of light hops - very nice nose. Light -bodied; Sharp hop bite up front with a ton of wheat, yeast and coriander seed notes, showing as much wit characteristics as the hops. Aftertaste shows a good complexity with some earthier malt tucked in with a lot of wheat, some light curacao and lemon flavours followed by a hint of spiciness and ending with a touch of a hop bitterness. Overall, a very nice beer, and one style that’s really growing on me, and for that - this one is a pretty nice example of that. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Collection in Honolulu, Hawaii (Oah’u) on 10-December-2012 for US$2.25 sampled at home in Washington (DC) the day before heading back out to the West Coast - Seattle.

Bottle. Full disclosure: I’m rating this an IPA even though it tastes a whole lot more like a Belgian Wit. This doesn’t smell or taste anything like an IPA and while it does taste good, it’s most definitely not what I expected when I read the words ’IPA’ on the label (sorry, you can say what ya want but I’m an American and inasmuch, I believe in truth in advertising). Anyway.... this pours a pale straw color with a thin white head that disappeared quickly. Nose is Belgian yeast and a hint of clove and lilies. Mouth is light, with a lot of Belgian-y yeasts and some lemon zest, followed by some biscuit. Lackluster finish. Deschutes is new to the Chicago market (and I really liked the Hop Henge I I had the other day) so I’ll give their other beers a try.... but please don’t advertise an IPA and give me a Wit. I don’t know how that goes over in Oregon, but here in the City of Big Shoulders, that shit don’t float.

Bottled from BevMo. Nose is sweetly hopped with a pretty big yeast aroma and some spice. Moderate hops up front with a good dose of cloves and a little banana. Somewhat sweet with a little bit of spiced hops in the finish. A lot like a hopped up hefe with wit spices.

Pours hazy yellow almost like lemonade. Very spicy on the front and then surprisingly balanced to finish. The wheat and hops show through. Not a huge wheat fan but the addition of hops really make this a tasty brew.

Deschutes doesn’t disappoint. I like it more the second time; the first time at a bar, I didn’t know what to make of it. Interesting mix of styles - floral, citrus hops, spiciness. Qualities of a hefeweizen with hops.

Ferris (12675) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle - Yeast, lemon rind, grassy hops on the nose. Cloudy pale yellow with a thin head. Hoppy, grassy, tinge of bitterness, a bit of lemon and yeast. Very light and refreshing on the tongue. A great patio beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pale wit-ish straw yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma of big strong hops and wit spice, citrus zest, and fruity yeast. Notes of sourdough bread. Flavor is full of bready malts and tangy hops, keeping with the sour dough bread motif. Lots of citrus, some wit spice, mild yeast. Medium bodied and a nice drinker. An interesting beer.
