This was a new beer for me, based on a picture I saw somewhere. I envisioned a super-bitter IPA with caramel notes and an overpowering hop bitterness to cut through a hot, humid summer day.
Sharp, sweet aroma of malt with hops in the background. Initial taste is crisp hop bite, combined with caramel malt sweetness. Followed by full-flavored hops and then lingering bitterness. Powerful punch of hop bitterness, buffeted by caramel malt sweetness.
