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.

Yeasty citrus aroma. Light clearish gold with minimal white head. There's a little bit of maltiness that is barely noticeable behind the grapefruity hops flavor that makes it nasty.

hayduke (3420) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours cloudy gold. Nose of citrus. Medium in body. Flavor is citrus and there is a spicy bite in the finish and is more like a wit than an IPA

malrubius (1816) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle from Alberstons. Very pale cloudy yellow with lasting head and lace. Coriander orange bready aroma. Fresh fruity melon sweetness with orange citrus and spicy long bitter and coriander finish. Definitely more on the wit side than the ipa side except for the long spicy bitter mildly tart finish. Nice soft carbo and light body. Good.

ronaldtheriot (1310) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Deschutes Chainbreaker has a thin, white head and an opaque, brilliant, gold-yellow appearance, with a small amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is a very bright, one could describe it, or bursting, citrus and white bread, sugary smell, and the flavor is of sweet orange, white bread, coriander, a bit of white pepper, and orange juice (think of a magnolia). Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Deschutes Chainbreaker finishes tart and highly drinkable. RJT

Lemke10 (811) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2014
This pours a semi-hazy color with some floaties and an frothy off-white head. The aroma is very citrusy for an IPA. The taste is light and very clean with lots of herbal and citrusy note. This is an intriguing brew from Deschutes with a very unique taste for the style that either be a hot or miss with the drinker.

andrepintado (1540) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - OCT 31, 2014
33cl bottle. Cloudy apperance. Thin white head. Light sourness, light bitterness and medium body. Aroma is herby, hoppy and wheat.

Nejhleader (1261) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2014
nice straw color. A nice brew with a bit of a citrus wheat mix. Has a good aftertaste of subtle hops.

YigSvartka (89) - Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
Hazy, nearly opaque yellow with a mid sized, but quickly dissipating head. Beautifully pungent aroma consisting of citrus, hops, yeast and banana. Absolutely delicious. Initially, Belgium white flavours are present featuring creamy smooth banana, bubblegum and yeast, but the finish is mildly hoppy and grassy. Certainly suits its title as a white IPA and is executed very well.

Leighton (11638) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours cloudy yellow with a light, foamy white head. Refreshing tangy lemon accents, sugary wheat, light bitter hay. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Nicely balanced to finish with more lemon, some grapefruit pith, hints of sweet wheat. Solid.

idalesky (5) - Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2014 does not count
A good beer for sure, however not perfect. A good thing for people to try that are familiar with Deschutes, but wanting to branch out from Black Butte or Mirror Pond.
