Been a WHILE since I did a review. Picked up a six pack of this at the store, lets give it a try.
A- Looks like a stereotypical belgian wit. The fizzy head doesn't stay long, but there is lacing.
S- Hint's of hops and belgian yeast, but also some citrus smells.
T- Pretty bland, some hops and citrus flavors.
M- Almost fizzy, light and tingly.
O- A nice spring/ summer sipper. Might not fit the IPA moniker, but it is refreshing and tasty. Also, Bottle says 5.6% ABV rather that the 5.1 noted above.

3.25/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bottle: a standard 355mL brown bottle with an okay label.

Appearance: pours a pale straw with a light haze, moderate carbonation visible. A one finger white head that drops to a thin cap. Looks okay.

Aroma: smells of yeast, wheat and grain. Some light citrus also. Pretty unexciting stuff.

Taste: some spice with wheat, lemon citrus and white pepper. Not bad, some tartness too.

Aftertaste: not a whole heap of hop bitterness, not sure where the 'IPA' comes from.

Mouth feel: lighter in body with a moderate spritzy carbonation.

Overall: an alright but overall completely overpriced brew. I wouldn't call it an IPA either - not very hop-orientated, more spice-driven. Too expensive and not interesting enough. Drinkable.

I am not sure I ever had a white IPA from a bottle before. I prefer my beer to come from a tap over the bottle in general. But this Chainbreaker White was a nice change from my usual selection of beers. While I am not a big fan of fruit favors in beer, I liked this beer...maybe I was just thirsty and maybe the nice finish let me appreciate the slight fruity flavors.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: yellow. Hazy. Thin head.
S: citrus. Lemon.
T: lemon peal. Light malt. Weird bittering mixed with funky Belgian yeast.
M: fizzy. Funky. The flavor interrupts the mouthfeel. Medium-light body coupled with weird flavor.
O: smells great. Taste not so great. Too bitter tied to the phenolics. Doesn't pair.
