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.

August 23rd, 2012 - White IPAs seemed to be a big deal back in 2012, though I dont know where many of them went. Deschutes Chainbreaker is still around, though, and that persistent popularity speaks to two qualities: Deschutes large distribution network, and the provisioning of a good White IPA. For those of us with less tolerance for dank, weedy and bitter beers than most, an IPA with a softer touch is something worth sighing longingly about. This brews aroma explains why: soft and buttery, with a touch of golden, yeasty biscuits, a light whiff of dandelion, and the distinct peal of pilsner malt. The flavor shares the aromas light and buttery flavor, served with a velvety soft palate. And again, the biscuit, dandelion and yeasty flavors appear again in the taste, but the hoppiness is a bit more pronounced, and nicely balanced against the menagerie of bakers shop smells. A medium aftertaste carries this complementary flavor forward, giving each sip the sensation of being valuable succor from the more regular and uniformed IPAs out there in the world, especially here on the Wes Coast.

Pale white color like a wheat beer, overly floral with strong coriander overtones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy/hazy yellow color with white head. Citrus, wheat, grass, and flowery notes on the nose; follow onto the palate. Medium-bodied and just a bit chewy. Finish lingers on the palate.

Bottle. A- Citrus, wheat, slight floral. A- Pale yellow color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Citrus, grapefruit, wheat, slightly malty, mild bitterness. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth crisp finish. O- A great IPA. I love the White IPA style and the citrus tones the Citra hops bring to this beer. Very smooth and almost reminds me more of a Pale Wheat Ale which certainly pleases me. Smooth and refreshing. Nothing wrong with that!

On tap at Craft Beer Market in Calgary. Cloudy yellow with nice lacing. Lots of great floral notes and some mild citrus and pine. Really nice hop profile and not overpowering.

Honestly, this beer may not be at the top of wither the wit or ipa levels, and it doesnt 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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a yellowish gold. Flakes prevalent. Small white head, disappears quickly. Taste is good, nothing too special.

Sort of looks like a sour, sorta tastes like a sour, but it is not a sour. Sickly yellow with soapy foam, it has an acidic nose at first, followed by dry biscuit. Its a bit acidic rolling over the tongue, but finishes as a bready IPA. Its OK.
