Homebrew Little Barbarossa

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.
