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.

A-Pours a murky golden color with reddish hues and a smallish head and decent lacing on the glass.
S-Nice...no, very nice floral citrus aromas predominantly of grapefruit and tangerine, as well as piney hops.
T-The citrus aroma carries forward to the taste of sweetness up front followed by the bitter piney hops at the finish.
M-This beer has a moderate feel and mild to moderate carbonation.
D-Very drinkable and pleasant overall. Refreshing and crisp.

I've been trying a lot of "okay" beers lately, so I'm pulling out the huma in the hopes I'll get something powerful. Plus I want to see how it is compared to the draft I had.

Decent. Still has some strong hop tones, but the subtle hop characteristics seem to have departed us. Seems to lean more towards a one dimensional ride. I mean, in all fairness, the pint I had on-tap was so fresh it had probably been kegged a week or even a few days prior. I mean, how can you beat that.
