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.

Served on draught at Old Chicago in Okemos, MI

Amber in color, perhaps leaning toward orange; head was about 2 fingers or so but dissipated relatively quickly to a thin layer of bubbles and eventually to a ring. Left pretty good lacing most the way down the glass.

Mmmm.... HOPS! Hops are obviously first and foremost on the nose. Unlike some IPAs, this actually has a little complexity in that there is some citrus and grapefruit, some grassy notes, and some eathiness in there as well. Nice.

The first pull floods the mouth with bittering hoppiness, and then the beer sort of finds a bit of balance (almost) as it rolls around the tongue. There is clearly a pretty strong malty backbone here but there is such an assortment of hop flavors going on that you almost have to look for it. The weight in the mouth is quite good and matches well with the moderate carbonation. At the swallow, the first part of the finish is the mellow hop bitterness but it fades to more a dry bitter linger.

Overall, a very good IPA! Gotta love the name and gotta love the brew. If you are into hops, you will dig this brew.

Serving type: on-tap
