Look: Pours a very pale yellow color with nice head.

Smell: Wheat and hops.

Taste: A sweet, bready/maltiness I wasn't expecting, with the traditional hop character apparent in most IPA's.

Feel: Very smooth texture, and easy drinking.

I really had only tried one white IPA before, but most any beers from Deschutes are worth a shot, plus it was on tap at happy hour, so I figured I'd give it a go. It's really cloudy, a lot like a wheat, but mellow and at the same time very flavorful, which isn't always the case with straight wheats. And it's not as hoppy as most straight IPAs. As such, I liked it a lot more. Apparently I'm now a fan of white IPAs.
