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.

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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
