Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA
My first white IPA. Chainbreaker is very pale golden color ale with some haziness. A tall fluffy head sits on top with plenty of lacing. Aroma is akin to a Beligum wit but is balanced out with a citrus hop bouquet that lightens the wit beer aroma. Smells wonderful in all honesty. Taste is like wow, light and refreshing hints of wheat malts, yeasty esters and lemon grass hops. Drinks smooth and tart with a bitter finish. Probably will be a hit in the summer no doubt, which would be prefect for that time of year.

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
