Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA

CIMG6304

There’s a new thing Deschutes has been playing with. They call it a white IPA, a hybrid of a wit and IPA. This beer features Pilsner, Wheat and unmalted wheat with Bravo, Citra, Centennial and Cascade hops. Oh, and don’t forget the sweet orange and coriander.

Stats:
Belgian India Pale Ale. 5.6% ABV. 55 IBUs. Oregon.

Very pale yellow color with a fluffy, loose head.

Orange peel and lemons with a little bit of clove on the nose. Little bit of hops as well, but nothing that would make me think it’s an IPA.

Mouthfeel is light to medium in body with high carbonation.

Lemon and orange peel with that clove and spice component. Fairly light hops, but they bring a medium bitterness and it ends on a citrus note.

Very citrusy with a bit of a hopped up profile and a fairly uninteresting beer. The whole white IPA thing hasn’t taken off yet, but if this is what we can expect, it’s a style I can’t get behind. 84 points.
