Take the Roasted Garlic Thyme Infused Cream Sauce and whisk in the IPA. Adding at the very end is important, doing this right before they are mixed in to the potatoes, as the cream should be almost to a simmer and the potatoes will cool the sauce, not boiling the hops at all. The flavors of the hops are what this style of beer is about. The identity of the beer is all about the bouquet of the hop, the bitterness, the balance of herbal, floral, tropical, dank, garlicly/oniony to earthy, and citrusy. Add enough India Pale Ale to find a balance from the sweet garlic to the herbal hop with a slight bitter edge.
