Homebrew Machete IPA

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.
