COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Isn’t 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 Deschutes’ hop skills and Boulevard’s deft wheat touch. What’s 1,800 miles when a great beer is at stake?

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!

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2011
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.

dresden (844) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
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.

AmEricanbrew (5834) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 14, 2011
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

rader58 (778) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 8, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear light golden color. Aroma of coriander, lemon, nutmeg, orange, pepper, cinnamon. Flavor is citrus lemon/orange, coriander, pepper, pine. A nice beer.

jzzbassman (1515) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - NOV 6, 2011
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.

natejgood (391) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - NOV 6, 2011
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.
