I took this recipe from the Homebrew Day 2020 post by FH Steinbart’s for a hoppy red ale.
The nose is still malt forward, with a little bit of caramel, a little toast but not much in the way of hops.
Which is actually OK: the malts are right up front when I drink the beer, but a nice citrusy bite comes around on the finish to keep things tidy. It works better than I would’ve thought. A pleasant, drinkable ale.
