About this Recipe: 

When did caramel malt become such a polarizing malt? We still think it’s great when used properly in hoppy styles - like the Red India Pale Ale. Let’s be honest, this beer killed it in our tasting rooms. Awesome notes of pear, bread crust and lemongrass from a combination of malt, hops and yeast produced esters. Medium body from the crystal malts creates a drinkable backbone for hop aroma and flavor to shine through. *If you prefer high intensity hop aroma we’d suggest doubling the dry hopping amounts.
