As the weather heats up, so does the Quiet Deeds range with the lads from this Melbourne craft brewery announcing the release of a limited edition White IPA.
The second limited edition brew to be released in the Quiet Deeds range, the White IPA mixes the hop-character of an India Pale Ale with the wheat base and spice additions of a refreshing Belgian Wit Beer.
The White IPA fuses Cascade, Centennial and Mosaic hops with BB Pale, JW Wheat and Rolled Oats malts for a refreshing, well-balanced ale with fruity hop aromas. Up front the White IPA displays crisp bitterness that blends seamlessly with yeast derived flavours of orange peel, coriander and spice. The complex mid palate delivers a muted banana and biscuity mouthfeel, while high citrus tones finish the ale with a clean and dry bitterness.
Available in a 375mL can and a 50L keg, the White IPA marks the first time Quiet Deeds have canned one of their brews.
“We chose the White IPA as it is a great, refreshing full-flavoured option with an excellent balance of sweetness and bitterness,” explains Quiet Deeds co-founder and director Patrick Alé. “We have been excited about cans for some time and thought this White IPA would be a great first step. Cans keep beer fresher and are more convenient, making it perfect for those warm summer nights.”
The White IPA also signals the brewery’s step towards more unique, limited edition brews in 2015.
Quiet Deeds have recently welcomed a new brewer, Bobby Henry, to the growing team in Port Melbourne. With a background in Chemical Engineering and a passion for craft beer, Henry has spent the past three years working with Red Truck Beer in Vancouver before returning to Australia to join the Quiet Deeds team.
“At Quiet Deeds we make beers that are really approachable and I’d really like to keep this quality,” he says. “I see the beers we produce moving forward being a little drier, crisp, and full of flavour – sessionable beers that will make you want to keep coming back for more!”
Quiet Deeds White IPA will be available in selected bottle shops and bars for a limited time and has a RRP of $22 per six-pack.
