Availability: Year-round

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.

Notes from 11/15/10

A:Pours a nice looking orange color with a fluffy white head that falls fairly quickly,
excellent lacing is left down the glass

S:Very juicy citrus hops come thru up front along with slight tropical hint as well, along with that a nice malt backbone in there as well

T:Up front you get a small taste of the hops that lead in the malt backbone of the brew
in the middle, the backend is well the hops really start to takeover with a citrus and
tropical flavor that lingers around long after the sip is gone.

M:Body is where you would want it to be, not to thin but not to heavy. Palate is left
sticky from the hops and a little dry as well just enough that you want to take another sip.

D:With so many great breweries in Michigan its hard not find some great brews but
I'm go ahead and say that Shorts IPA is one of my favorite ones in the state. Easy
drinkability, super great taste, and all around enjoyable. Shorts is doing it, score some if
ya can.
