Galaxy Funktown Session IPA with Malted Spelt Data and Results

 Notes:

Descriptors: peach (stone fruits), orange, candied sweetness/fruitiness

Overall it’s a very solid beer; I have to remind myself it’s only 4.6%. I took this beer to a DC Homebrewer’s meeting and had a few people comment on how they enjoyed the dryness in the beer which surprised me considering the FG was 1.015 (158F mash temperature). Other comments were that the beer was delicate, soft, and flavorful, which is exactly what I like to hear!
