4.3/5 rDev +18.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
A - hazy light yellow, with a thin head.
S - nice wit aroma with a hint of lemon
T - nice lemon corriander wheat flavor, with citrus hops coming in at the end. Nowhere near the hops I would expect from the IPA label, but that level of hops would ovewhelm this beer, so I appreciate the restraint.
M - light, somewhat fizzy mouthfeel.
Overall, a really nice wheat beer. I thought the IPA in the name is a little misleading, this is more of an attempt to cross a wheat beer with an IPA, so the hops and ABV are not what you probably expect when you see IPA, but Deschutes balanced the characteristics nicely here.
Serving type: on-tap

Had this on 2014-03-27 in Columbia, PA
A - Mostly cloudy light yellow with a 1-finger white head that fades quickly and leaves light lace.
S - Grassy, Belgian yeast, lemon, pale malt, light spice/pepper. Stronger than a typical witbier.
T - White bread, lemon candy, pepper, light herbal with a bit of sour and light bitterness in the finish.
M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Not watery but pretty crisp.
O - A nice compromise between a witbier and a pale ale.
Serving type: bottle
