Just tapped my Paddy's IPA brewed 3/17. I like it better than the IPA with the c malt in it. Much lighter and cleaner tasting to me. The flavor I found cloying is no longer there. I'd like a little more mouth feel so maybe some wheat or oats and I think less munich or vienna instead. Color is nice, lighter without the c40. There's still a little yeast in suspension I think and I can taste/smell it. It has been moved recently from cold storage to serving fridge. Hopefully as that falls out the hops aroma will improve. It's not what I'd hoped for and not what I usually get in my IPAs. Can't imagine the grain bill change would negatively impact hops aroma.

I like this grain bill and can see keeping it with a few changes but I have a 54% 2 row 46% pils IPA on deck that probably needs some wheat/oats added to the grain bill and I'm planning a MO based IPA.
Had a NEIPA recently Solace Brewing Partly Cloudy that I liked a lot. Very light yellow. Almost like a murky Helles now that I think about it. Can't find any info on it except the type of hops, el dorado and citra, and it's double dry hopped.
