I made this brew originally about 8 years ago, and called it 44 Magnum IPA. I tweaked the recipe over time a bit and then brewed it for my 44th birthday party (2015).
Slight sweet fruity hop aroma, plus some caramel malt aroma. Crisp hop bite, matched with a caramel malt sweetness. Quickly dries on the palate and leaves a slight residual hop bitterness. A little sweet in the aftertaste.
