Poured from a 355ml bottle. Pours a cloudy whitish-yellow. The nose offers up wheaty, lemony, floral/herbaceous notes. It's very fresh and bright smelling. It has a nice refreshing light mouthfeel and has all the requisite tart citrus and coriander flavours to complement the spicy/fruity hop notes. Perfect for summer, but really enjoyable year-round.

A buddy brought over a 6pack of 12oz beers the other day. Since I got the gout about 10 months ago, I've had little to no beer, so this is a rare occasion and a new review for me in a almost a year.
Nice white colored floaty head after a standard pour into a Rodenbach Grand Cru tulip. Cloudy and light yellow corn in color. Good retention and lacing.
Nose is very Belgian with a strong presence of Belgian yeast in addition to white pepper and clove. There is a nice backing of floral hops and a malty presence as well to add balance and complexity. Some white grape and other fruity notes as well, perhaps mango.
The taste confirms what my nose predicted. This one is more Belgian than IPA to me.
Nice and creamy in the mouth with a good medium body. Nice level of carbonation as well.
Overall, a good beer, but I was expecting more of a hop presence from Deschutes, especially since IPA is in the title. There are better offerings of a similar profile out there, but still a pretty good beer nonetheless.

Best before 4/26/13
A- This beer pours a hazy pale lemon yellow body with a thick white head that sticks to the glass with each sip. There is a gentle carbonation that glides out of the hazy body to the surface.
S- The paper green hops has some pithy unripe tropical fruit aromas and a club soda yeast ester in the finish.
T- The bright wit yeast flavor has some orange zest and bread dough qualities with a green citrus pith hint and some dry coriander spice in the finish. There is some tropical fruit notes in the hops that linger for a short bit after the finish. There is some tangerine sweetness in the orange zest as it opens u and some club soda flavor in the yeast character.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel and a gentle little fizz with no alcohol heat.
O- This beer is a nice bright hoppy beer with lots of depth both in the hops and in the yeast/spice characteristics that support it, but at the same time it is very sessionable.

My first thought, is this beer looks like a Wit. Matte colored head about one finger in thickness. Thin layer of foam last for most of twelve ounces. Hazey yet bright banana peel and hay color. Little bubbling.
Hoppy citrus, a little clove, bubblegum, and banana all take up space in this aroma. Smells like a Wit with American hops. Cool!
Dry, chalky palate with a good body. Dry bananas and sweet, lightly toasted wheat intermingle with citrusy and earthy hop flavors. This beer is great and easy and fun to drink.
