3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Good summer beer. Reminiscent of a wheat as much as an IPA. This is not quite as hop-heavy as some IPAs. There’s just a touch of soapiness in the flavor that is a bit off-putting. Also, the usual round of citrus and hop bite.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours extremely pale yellow with a nice white head. Aromas of yeast, sulfur, citrus (lemon grass, orange peel), and a hint of melon like honeydew. Good body, effervescent carbonation without being prickly, initial flavor of yeasty orange peel, lemon and a bit of coriander, well balanced bitterness. Smooth clean finish makes this a solid summer drinker.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has a strong citrus flavor, more on the taste than the aroma. Has that malty, caramely taste that I recognize from other white ales. Labeled as an IPA, I think I was looking for a little more punch. Not a great score from me, but that is partly due to personal preferences in style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy straw yellow with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of lots of wheaty coriander like a witte, in fact lots of coriander, with a sort of herbal citrus tone going on too. Flavor is clean and balanced and exciting, with coriander, wheat, grassy herbal hop notes, and a subtle twinge of lemon rind. Tasty with a clean finish, begging for more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Ciceros. This is a lemonade colored beer that has a touch of green. A smallish white head. The aroma is wheat, light citrus, and Belgian yeast but is nor hig at all. Those are tasted with the yeast being faint. A bit of pepper and light lemony notes. Everything here is subtle and more would have been better.

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

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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!
