Isnít it how it always works? A few brewers sit around tippling and waxing poetic about what-ifs, wild ideas and untapped dreams when one suddenly proclaims "why not?" So the Conflux series was born, bravely leaping corporate and geographic barriers to jointly explore uncharted beeratory. Cheers, fellow explorers, cheers.

Second in a series, this citrusy, smooth white IPA is a fortuitous meeting of Deschutesí hop skills and Boulevardís deft wheat touch. Whatís 1,800 miles when a great beer is at stake?

Pours a brilliant gold with a fluffy white head and tons of yeast floaties. Very citrusy aroma. Lemon, orange, and hops. Also notes of pine. Has a velvety mouth feel that is sliced by the citrus aftertaste. I taste a hint of grass in there, not sure what gave the taste but it was welcome.

RBAG summer 2012. From brown 650ml bottle. Yellow pour, has a lot of haze and some small floaties. Head was small and creamy and sticky round the edges of the glass. Nose had bread, spice and citrus with a little sweetness. In the mouth the beer had nice bready and wheaty malts with decent hoppiness. Some straw and grass in the fade out. Dryish end, clean, easy drinker.

Very nice collaboration. Starts and ends with citrus, but this is far from a one dimensional beer. Elements of wheat, coriander, yeast, and lemon. Tried at the Zona Rosa beer festival in 2011.

A - Slightly hazy golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of lemon, orange, and citrus hops, Belgian yeast, coriander, other spices, with some sweet bready malts. T - Starts off with a mix of citrus hops with some lemon and orange peel, coriander, Belgian yeast, other fruity esters, and some pepper. Through the middle, some sweet bready malts come through with a touch of bitterness and floral hop with some more coriander, clove, and other yeast spices. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts with some spices, lemon, Belgian yeast, and some citrus hops. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and spicy finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice Belgian IPA. Good mix of IPA flavor and Belgian yeast character.

Bottle at home, from the Pipeline... If White IPA was an accepted style, it would be my favorite style right now. Love both Deschutes and Boulevard, so this should be awesome... Pours a hazy pale gold, almost watery looking, into my Minneapolis Town Hall glass, head is 1-finger thick, white, and overall quite nice. Nose is lemongrass, white pepper, clean and spicy wheat, clove, ginger, so much lemony citrus here... Flavours of lemon, bright wheat, peppercorns, some ginger, really refreshing!

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy yellow-slight orange with thin white head, aroma brought notes of big belgian esters and white pepper, hints of pear, apricot, touch of orange and lemon zest, some nice biscuit as well, this smells delicious. Taste is a bit sweet but notes of biscuit and bread, hints of esters with pear, tropical fruit, touch of pineapple, hints of orange, lemon and grapefruit notes, finish fairly sweet as mentioned.

Shared with Travlr. Old? Hazy yellow straw color with lots of head. Nice lacing. Smell is orangey citrus, fresh cut grass, and wheat. Taste is like orange juice, with a bitter finish. Grassy, summery. Doesnít seem much like an IPA.

This was a fun one...I know that there is a fair amount of hops and that there was a good amount of citrus to this beer. I paired this beer with a shrimp and crab pizza with cheese that starts with a G and it was amazing. It serves as a great compliment to lighter foods and greens. The hops and the citrus compliment each other well.
