A - Cloudy straw, white head that retains and laces well.
S/T - Yeasty funk up front, orange peel, coriander, spice, herbal hops, a little minty. Finishes with a lemony bitterness.
M - Light body, medium carbonation, very smooth, finishes dry.
O - Interesting mix of styles, but with the IPA designation, I was expecting more of a hop presence to it.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams cup
A- Hazy straw yellow with an 1 1/2" of white bubbly head
S- Citrus, Belgian yeast, pretty much sums it up
T- Followes the nose, plus some hoppy bitterness
M- Light body, crisp carbonation
O- All and all a decent brew, though my least favorite of the deschutes family, i can see it being a good session.

Yellow and slightly cloudy with a white fluffy head and ok lace.
Aroma is big and spicy, more like a Belgian than an IPA, although the hops are noticeable.
Coriander, lemon, citrus, wheat, and a good hop tanginess are all noted in the taste.
Body is light but chewy, typical of a wheat beer or witbier.
A very nice brew, easy to drink and tasty.

Pours a very light yellow color that remonds me of sunshine, the head is frothy and white sticking to the glass on the way down. Nice floral aroma with a ton of Belgian wheat and yeast, and lots of nice citrus notes from the hops, very nice smell. Nice bitter lemony flavor with wheat, yeast and some banana, grassy hops. It has low carbonation with a refreshing finish. this beer is really good, nice representation af a Belgian IPA.

Served on-draught into a New Belgium stem-goblet. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a one and a half finger beige colour head of decent cream, nice thickness, and good retention. Colour is a pale semitransparent yellow. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Straw, lemon grass, lemon, floral hops, and clean fragrant pale malts. Pleasant and appealing. A mild strength aroma.
T: Clean malts, lemon, floral hops, hints of other more vague citrus notes, and some cream. Simple, but clean and balanced. Enjoyable but lacking the subtlety and complexity I expect from Deschutes. Well built for what it is.
Mf: Smooth and wet. A bit undercarbonated. Too light and fleeting.
Dr: Drinkable but underwhelming, especially considering the brewery. I like it, but not enough to get it again. Deschutes does far better brews.

A= Pours cloudy/hazy straw
S= Not much aromantic hops here. I smell a bit of lemony zest.
T= The flavor is a tangy wheat citrus with a little hop bittering on the finish. I am drinking this in November but I can see this being a really great summer beer. Very well balanced and easy to drink
M= medium carb
O= This is a pretty nice beer, the best "white ipa" I've had. The man version of Blue Moon?
