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.

Thanks to iceicebaby for this one!

"A complex malt and hop them park in your mouth"
I guess I am ready for the ride!

Poured into Sam Adams Sensory Glass.

Pours 1 and 1/2 fingers of off white head (slight orange hued). Decent retention with really nice lace. Color is a bright hazed pumpkin orange. I really like the color. 4.5

Aroma: Wow, the aroma is great. I am liking this a lot more than the west coast IPAs I have had lately. This one is so fruity and has a bouque of floral hops. Mangos and grapefruit dominate the nose. 4.5

Taste: There is a big caramel malt flavor here that I didn't pick up in the nose. The floral hops are well done here, however. Nice fruits in the background to really pull this ipa together. 4

Mouthfeel: Crisp and bitter. The bite isn't too hardcore which is nice. Medium bodied with a fairly good amount of carbonation. I would give this a 4.5, but it leaves a dry, hoppy aftertaste that I am not fond of. 4

Overall, I am really impressed with this beer. It is a great IPA and I wish I had access to this on a regular basis. All the elements of this beer fit so well together. My first Short's beer and I am impressed. 4.5
