Deschutes Chainbreaker has a thin, white head and an opaque, brilliant, gold-yellow appearance, with a small amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is a very bright, one could describe it, or bursting, citrus and white bread, sugary smell, and the flavor is of sweet orange, white bread, coriander, a bit of white pepper, and orange juice (think of a magnolia). Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Deschutes Chainbreaker finishes tart and highly drinkable.

This pours a semi-hazy color with some floaties and an frothy off-white head. The aroma is very citrusy for an IPA. The taste is light and very clean with lots of herbal and citrusy note. This is an intriguing brew from Deschutes with a very unique taste for the style that either be a hot or miss with the drinker.
