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.

12oz bottle poured into SA perfect pint glass.
~$12/6-pack at Whole Foods in DC
Bottled 5/16/11

A: Pours a deep, almost burnt colored amber. Frothy head which quickly dissipates.
S: Almost like a sweet nectar aroma.
T: I think I may be eating hop cones. This is serious stuff and for a single IPA it's pretty remarkable what they've been able to do with the taste.
M: Thick.
D: I like this. I've heard a lot about this beer and I'm very happy to have had the opportunity to have a few. While it's not my favorite IPA, I think that it is a stand-up beer.
