Pours a nice golden color, beautiful for an IPA. Not much topper - maybe a finger's worth of foam. Leaves a light lacing as I drink.
Smell is slightly above average for an IPA. What everyone else is saying is true: citrus fruits, maybe some hints of tropical fruits like pineapple or starfruit.
Hits first with the fruit, then with the bitter. A malty backbone fools you at first - you think this beer will finish smooth and malty. But THEN the bitterness wallops once again. Fantastic hopiness for an IPA, so all you hopheads out there will like if not love Huma. It may be slightly TOO bitter and too little complex for my tastes.
Carbonation level is too high.
Overall, a nice, sessionable IPA, though if you're not a fan of hoppy bitterness, you will not be able to sip on more than one of these in a row.
