The other half of the collaboration tasted laterally. This was closer to the style, with a pronounced dryness. Significant coriander, white pepper. More perceived bitterness, with a mild hop aroma. Likely better consumed with food, I thought the drinkability was fine but limited. Slightly hazy whitish coloured body.Thanks again, Tom.

Wow, a super spicy almost Belgian-wit like aroma. This is very smooth, a nice spice and really good. This beer could sneak up on you. Really nice. On tap at Big Dog’s

22 ounce bottle pour. Light yellow color with a nice white head. Citrus and light fruit taste. Fresh, crisp refreshing. Light hops for an ipa. White ipa is a great way to explain this one.

Bottle: Pale yellow haze with a modest creamy white head. Aroma indicates dry florals merged with wet citrus fruitiness. Inviting. Sweet citrus fruit and plenty of bitters in the taste. Some hints of tropical fruit. Sort of a lingering, dry, spicey trailer. Different is good!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Cloudy yellow pour with lots of sediment, a short white head and moderate lace. Citrus hops and lemon in the nose, along with some yeast. Medium body and moderate, fine carbonation. Toast, lemon, resinous hops, farmhouse funk, yeast, pepper, and caramel. Medium, funky and hoppy finish. A top Belgian IPA.

Hazy gold. Citrusy and yeasty. It tastes a lot like a Belgian IPA. Bitter, but certainly not what you’d expect from a Deschutes IPA, its much more like a wit.

Clear golden color with frothy rocky lasting white foam. Lots to smell here; sage, ganja bud, pine sap, tart wheat, earthy hop, coriander, etc. Medium bodied with average co2. Orange, coriander, wit brew spice flavors with earhty citrus hoppage, mildly tart pale wheat--very nice

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit and spice. Flavor is weird, not that I don’t enjoy it, but the aggressive citrus seems like almost pure lemon candy and some herbal hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very light clear golden color with a stark white head. Bubbles rise slowly from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of citrus fruit and light honey. The flavor is hops, citrus and honey, just like the aroma. Very clean in the mouth and easy to drink. Not an overpoweringly strong beer, but very tasty. At 7.3% ABV and with such a light, crisp taste it almost seems as though a bit of the alcohol makes it through to the flavor of the beer. Definitely an interesting and well rounded beer.
