2.99/5 rDev -17.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: Deep yellow/gold dust color with a brilliant white two finger head. Scant amount of carbonation bubbles flow to the top. Significant cloudy haze is also evident.
Aroma: Hard coriander note up front in the nose along with some citrus (mostly grapefruit)
Taste: significant spice hits immediately. This is followed by the rind of a grapefruit that has been mixed in a cup of water. A very minimal cereal grain note can be detected if searched for
Mouthfeel: Very dry on the finish with a kind of flat grapefruit soda feel . Aftertaste leaves the impression of sucking on a grapefruit peel.
Overall: I really tried to find something I really liked about this beer. Unfortunately it didn't happen. I really like Deschutes as a brewery but this one fell flat ( both literally and figuratively). The call it a "white ipa" but drinks more like a wit without much bite. I would recommend the porter and stout instead as they are world class brews
Serving type: bottle

on tap at Punch Bowl Social, Portland
Haxy lemon with white film.
Wit nose heavy on the lemon.
Saltines, lemon curd, big yeasty bite, and lemon hops to end.
Wheaty finish and dry waxy linger.
Light, oily, round.
For all the talk of a new style, very wit-y. Cascade and Citra, but they are mostly missing, or let’s say I’ve had hoppier Belgians. Falls between two stools, badly.
Serving type: on-tap
