COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nice and light bodied. A good single IPA for a summer day. Has the color of a typical wheat beer, but the bitterness of a IPA

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 On tap, served in a branded sleeve at Hops in New West. Very pale cloudy yellow in color, with not a lot of head. It’s nicely but not heavily hopped. Citrus, fruity. I quite like it.

And Sep 13, 2014 in bottle at Bitter in Vancouver. Still a great summer IPA. Yes!

It has a light yellow color with a small head. Unique color for an IPA. Aroma of citrus and some straw. Taste has some lemon zest with some other mild citrus. Mild finish.

On tap. Hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Belgian yeast and citrus aroma. Good crisp witbier taste with strong citrus hops presence. Good and refreshing.

thetmaxx (763) - West Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 30, 2012
poured into a shaker. Cloudy yellow straw color. Nice lacing. Aroma is very citrusy. Almost based on a witbier, with hops, very nice! I love how deschutes is pushing limits with new beers! Nice light palate, almost a light ipa, great on a hot day!

PapaSkeetSkeet (954) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 29, 2012
lightly clouded straw-yellow. Beautiful rising lines of carbonation and a few mm of pale white head. Aroma is pear, light lemon, sweet grain, hints of spicy yeast. Body is fine prickly carbonation on top of a light, syrup texture. Flavor has moderate lemon, pineapple, citrus with notes of pear and peach, as well as smooth grassy hop notes transitioning into a light and forgiving bitterness. Much better than I thought it would be.

quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Pale yellow, malty aroma, tastes of citrus and malt. Hardly any bitterness at the end, but there’s a touch there. Grapefruit juice and malt, but not in a bad way.

jmagnus87 (2815) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly hazy pale gold with about 3 fingers of white head. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit, wheat, belgian yeast and some spices. Taste is lightly bitter. Citrus, spicy yeast and wheat. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation but not much of a finish. Overall, not bad. Not really what I was expecting and nothing I would really seek out.

I would call this less a White IPA and more a Belgian Wheat IPA. Or even a tea IPA because this is like chamomile to me. Pours a hazy light yellow with no bitterness that I can detect. A nice golden Belgian with some slight hefe notes. I could drink many of these.
