Deschutes Brewing Co.Chainbreaker White IPA

A – Poured a cloudy, yellow color with golden highlights. A two-finger, rocky, white head of foam left sudsy patches of lace on the glass.

S – It smelled fruity and yeasty with a touch of wheat.

T – Good fruity bite from the Belgian yeast. Nice cracked wheat flavor with citrus notes.

M – It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O – They’ve really combined an American wheat beer and a Belgian IPA. Really cool would be a great summer beer

A – Poured out a dark brown color with a small, off-white head of bubbly foam. It left minimal lacing.

S – It smelled of roasted malt, grasses and pine.

T – It had a nice bitter hop bite with a piney/resiney flavor. Good roasted malt backbone provides needed balance.
