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.

Golden pour, little foam, decent lacing. Smells just like hopslam, what I would expect from a hop heavy beer like this. Taste was in a way similar to hopslam, though less balanced, though more bitter despite feeling as if it wasn't anymore hop heavy. Bitter aftertaste. Enjoyable though, as it is $5 cheaper than hopslam in my area. Don't have too much more to say about this beer other than its a solid, yet bitter, hop monster of a beer.

12oz bottle received in trade with leafsj - thanks buddy!

Appearance - Hazy copper colour with an average size fizzy/frothy off-white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes.

Smell - Malts, hops, grapefruit, pine

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste hops and malts mixed with caramel. There is also quite a bit of bitter resiny pine and grapefruit peel and pith. It ends with a bitter hoppy malty aftertaste.

Overall - A good dose of bitter hops but lacking in the fruity juiciness department. Still a great beer that I would drink again. Reminded me a bit of a Finest Kind IPA.
