Notes/Commercial Description:
Named after the hop flower Humulus Lupulus, this India Pale Ale style beer has enormous amounts of hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. With a very complex malt bill, flavors seem to meld with the hops to balance this ale and provide a ridiculous urge to sample more.
140 IBU

4.08/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance is a bright amber hue, with a small amount of head that quickly dissipates. Great lacing on the side of the glass though.

Smell is strong, and dominated by pine and earth notes. Some sweetness as well.

Taste is very bitter, with the hop flavors (mostly pine, but some citrus as well) right at the center of it all. But there is a definitely some corresponding sweetness from the malts. I'm not 100% convinced this is an ideal balance, but if you love hops this beer is perfect.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, with lots of carbonation. The bitterness lingers.

Overall a solid IPA. The hop flavors are subtle, and less dominant than Founders Centennial IPA. But as the name and artwork suggest, the hop bitterness is the main attraction.
