This recipe is a child of my Red Rye IPA recipe, Barbarossa IPA. I wanted to make a version with less caramel sweetness and a lower alcohol bite. Thus was born Little Barbarossa.
This beer has a nice fresh hop aroma, and a tastebud twinge from the malt, followed by characteristic rye malt slickness on the mouth. Full flavor of hops with a rye twist.
