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.
140 IBU

An absolute dream for any hop lover. Although perhaps "over the top" for some, I think it's my favourite beer, ever!

Clear amber with decent carbonation and head, but limited lacing. Beautiful hops and tropical fruits in the aroma, followed by a multi-faceted flavour that covers the full spectrum from the sweetness of caramelized malts and pineapple / mango to the lingering bitterness of a brilliantly hopped finish.

I've enjoyed this beer in several different towns and pubs, from both taps & bottles. The quality has been consistent and the beer wonderful. I am now enjoying one of the last bottles I brought back from Michigan - much older than it should be - and am absolutely stunned that it's as good as I remember...

A pilgrimage to "the upper peninsula" is in order!
