Style | ABV
American IPA |  7.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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

4.1/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - A clear, sunset orange body with an off-white crown into a standard shaker. Retention isn't really its strong suit, at least out of a bottle. Good lacing... it looks like little amoeba on the sides of my glass.

S - Pineapple, huge citrus notes... just juicy citric, bitter hops. I think it may be the fruitiest smelling AIPA coming out of MI right now.

T - It's a bitter brew, believe me... it's right up there with Green Flash IPA. If you're into a huge IBU bitch slap, this is up your alley. Basically huge dry hops, with a massively bitter finish. The malt is very subdued and plays a miniscule role in the taste. It may come off a little less over the top on draft, but it's still awesome to have this in a bottle. Super dry finish.

M - Nice body, nice carbonation.

D - I can do one or two of these at home out of a bottle, and on draft I can normally drink them all night... until I'm stumbling, that is.

Notes: This translated relatively well into a bottle and I'm quite happy to now be able to go to the store and by sixxers of Huma Lupa :)

Probably may favorite India pale ale. It is very well balanced with a great hoppy taste that complements many types of dinners. A lot of IPAs taste the same to me, but this one tends to stand out and the creative name probably helps. I tend to prefer this in the summer even over fruiter and lighter beers.

Serving type: on-tap
