Deschutes, my favorite Oregon brewery, and Boulevard? Collaborating? Lucky enough for me, I went to Portland the week this came out and had this version - on tap - then went back home to the KC area and had the Boulevard bottle. Superb!

It's not really an IPA. It's really more of a witbier with more hops. Not much else I can say, it's a lot like the old Two Joker's witbier Boulevard had, with all those delicious hops like Deschutes uses in their super hoppy beers.

So this is labeled, per the brewery, as a white ipa. I can see that. Has all the Belgian characteristics to it, and very evenly so, if I may say. Spice tones from hops come in and edge things off. I like this brew. It's unique and interesting and very well done. The mesh of characteristics comes together nicely and it works. I'd love to try the Boulevard version.

A - Slightly hazy golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of lemon, orange, and citrus hops, Belgian yeast, coriander, other spices, with some sweet bready malts.

T - Starts off with a mix of citrus hops with some lemon and orange peel, coriander, Belgian yeast, other fruity esters, and some pepper. Through the middle, some sweet bready malts come through with a touch of bitterness and floral hop with some more coriander, clove, and other yeast spices. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts with some spices, lemon, Belgian yeast, and some citrus hops.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and spicy finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice Belgian IPA. Good mix of IPA flavor and Belgian yeast character.
