Chainbreaker White IPA brewed by Deschutes Brewery, with an ABV of 5.60% This brew pours out a nice cloudy amber color with a small white head. This is an unfiltered brew you cannot see though this IPA. The smell of Chainbreaker White IPA is rich with citrus, hops, grains and malts. This white IPA has a real inviting smell to it. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavors. You pick up on the citrus and the hops right away. The end of this brew is nice and smooth. Chainbreaker White IPA has a lot going on in it, the look, smell, and flavors. There is nothing overpowering about this white IPA, it has a real nice balance to it. The mouth feel of Chainbreaker White IPA is bold at first, crisp in the middle and smooth at the end. This one of the style of IPA's that I really do enjoy. These white IPA's seem to have a decent balance of flavors. Overall I'm giving Chainbreaker White IPA a 4.25 out of 5. I would buy this brew again. Deschutes Brewery, brewery did a nice job on this one.

Bright yellow, hazy color with white head. Very intense aroma of coriander and some belgian yeast. Taste is not as intense. Starts like a typical belgian ale, gets into witbier territory in the middle and finishes quite bitter. The coriander is also lingering in the aftertaste. A nice beer overall but it's kind of missing the IPA part. It has a bitter finish but I would have liked a more hoppy aroma and taste too.

Does not taste like an IPA at all to me. Not even a hoppy wit. Does not taste bad just not what I expected.

This looks, smells and tastes like a witbier to me. Very lemony/zesty, hints of coriander and other spices. Wheat, bready, yeasty. Very light. Very crushable. If you're looking for a hop assertive IPA, this is not for you. If you're looking for something nice and light with some decent flavor on a hot summers day....give it a shot.
