So, I went to an IPA fest, and I was double fisting a Hop Venom and a Rampage. In my drunken state I had the bright idea of mixing them together, and I fell in love. I took some drunken notes, and kept on drinking the yummy goodness. I took all of the ingredients from the Rampage website, and put them into Beersmith. I then scoured the internet for info on Hop Venom, and placed in the hops that are not in the Rampage.

Based on my drunken notes I am shooting for a beer that is 9.2%, mid-80s IBU, a strong complex hop aroma of melons, citrus, pine and spice; hop flavor of melon, citrus and pine; low sweet malt flavor; medium malt flavor of caramel/brown bread flavors; low roasted malt undertones and slight alcoholic warmth. Does this recipe look like I am on a good start to my goal?
