Today I’m making a not so hoppy and not so strong India Pale Ale with Japanese そば茶. Soba-cha is my favorite Japanese tea, it is made from roasted buckwheat berries, and has a delicious nutty, malty flavor. It doesn’t have the bitterness as green tea even if you soak it for a long time or make it strong. It have a little sweet taste, with this full body IPA it will be quite sweet with the full flavor of Galaxy aroma hops and dry hopped. Galaxy will add peachy, some say lychee, citrusy aroma and taste. I think this will be a hit!
