Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: arizcards on 06-13-2004

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.

Pours a great looking IPA. Burnt orange color with a bit of haze. A mild amount of carbonation creates a thin white head that laces throughout the drink.
Smell is great. All kinds of different hop smells: flowery, citrus, and dominant Earthy hops.
Taste has a lot going on. Very strong earthy and piney hops, but not much to balance it.
Mouthfeel is very sharp, not much smoothness or balance.
Drinkability is okay. A lot of really nice hop tastes, but not much more besides that going on. Could only drink about one of these before the hops start to hurt my mouth...
