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.

12oz bottle poured into Founders snifter. Thanks to makdeco for picking this one up for me.

A- Pours a nice hazy orange golden brown with a very thin layer of white bubbly head that quickly recedes to leave almost no head. Slightly below average carbonation.

S- Not as hoppy as some IPAs but still a decent amount. Pleasant tropical fruity aromas of oranges, grapefruit, mangoes, lemons, pine, and some light caramel malts in the background. Slightly above average aroma strength.

T- Bitter hops, oranges, mangoes, pineapple, grapefruit, and other citrus fruits. Finishes with a lightly bitter, lightly spiced, citrusy juice flavor. Decently well balanced.

M- Nice carbonation, juicy, easy to drink.

O- This beer was a nice IPA that was easy to drink. Had nice mixed tropical fruits in the aroma and taste. I thought there was a tiny bit of a plasticy artificial quality to it, which is why I couldn't rate it higher. It wasn't anything that made the taste that bad. Overall this is my first beer from Short's and I'm impressed. I look forward to drinking this again and trying some of their other beers.
