Notes:

Descriptors: peaches, lemon, pine, tropical,

Cleared up nicely with time in the keg. Nice thick tightly packed white head that’s sticking to the sides of the glass nicely. It’s very light in color. Very tropical smelling. Smells like peaches with a slightly lemony piney note. Mouthful is nice and full for an IPA, very smooth slightly thick. The hops come through first, then the malt (maris otter) lingers in the finish. Finishes pretty dry, I’d almost prefer it to be a little less dry, but that’s just my preference. I’m more convinced that flaked quinoa helps a lot with head stability (great source of protein) and mouthfeel but leaves the beer clearer than using flaked wheat for some reason.
