COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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?

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Bomber from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours hazy slightly dirty gold - like green tea - with a slight creamy/bubbly whiteish head. Aroma is something like citrus combined with asparagus. With maybe some basil tossed in the mix. Passing strange stuff. Med body. I honest to gosh think this is a mix of basil and some standard citrus hop. Lots of basil. Well itís damn drinkable, and Iím thinking itíd go well with something Italian. Itís bitter in the finish, and itís certainly easy to drink. Course I think you gotta be really fond of basil to get into this. I had basil/tomato dressing on my lunch today, Iíve got basil in the kitchen window, so basil is on my mind!

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow color, massive fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of citrus > grass > flowers. Taste is bitter lemon and light spice, maybe coriander and white pepper.

Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Bomber poured a hazy yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of sage, coriander,wheat and lemon. Palate was light to medium odied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of sage, coriander, wheat and light citrus with a smooth dry lingering spiced finish. Even less Hoppy than Boulevards version. Why do they call this a White IPA???

BeerandBlues2 (9400) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with fair lacing. Aroma is hay, straw, and biscuit malt, pepper, fruity esters, citrus hops, light earthy notes. Flavor is black pepper, medium malt, light fruity esters, light hops, medium citrus notes, and a dry finish with spicy notes. Light body, low warmth, medium-high carbonation.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle @ home. Slightly cloudy (less so than the Boulevard edition) with a full, pearl white head. A slightly more pronounced piney, earthy hoppiness in the nose than the Boulevard edition which has more of the witbier characteristics. Moderately piney, somewhat resiny hoppy, light wheat flavor. A tasty brew but more of a hoppy, resiny presence than the other version.

Sammy (8359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
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.
