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.

On tap. Great balance of citrus and hops. Pours cloudy pale yellow with beautiful white head. Orange peel, corriander and citrus notes. Very easy drinking, the best of Belgium Whites and Cascadian IPA’s all in one delicious pint. Superb beer.

Poured on tap at the Portland brewpub. Citrus wit beer appearance and smell. Flavor boasts citrus followed by Belgian yeast embodiment. Finish is crisp. Over all tastes like a mix of an ipa and a wit bier.

Honestly, this beer may not be at the top of wither the wit or ipa levels, and it doesn’t stand out as one over the other, but this beer is, for me at least, a great blend of my two favorite styles. Wow, the was an atrocious sentence...this has the wheat backbone with a light punch of hops that is a great drinker anytime of the day.

This beer belongs in the Saison category. It is a very similar flavor profile of Prairie Artisan Ales Standard Farmhouse Ale. Absolutely delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Best by date of 08.02.14. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 07.01.14. A: Citrus, lemon, banana, tropical fruit, pineapple, and pear. A: 1/3 finger head. It recedes quickly. See through yellow body. T: Candied pineapple, lemon, and mango dominate. Pear and banana are subtle. P: Crisp and smooth. Somewhat bubbly. O: Awesome. This has wit and APA-like qualities. It was confusing at first, but delicious.

My first white IPA. Chainbreaker is very pale golden color ale with some haziness. A tall fluffy head sits on top with plenty of lacing. Aroma is akin to a Beligum wit but is balanced out with a citrus hop bouquet that lightens the wit beer aroma. Smells wonderful in all honesty. Taste is like wow, light and refreshing hints of wheat malts, yeasty esters and lemon grass hops. Drinks smooth and tart with a bitter finish. Probably will be a hit in the summer no doubt, which would be prefect for that time of year.
