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 nice golden with a white head that leaves a nice layer of foam throughout the drinking experience. There is even a little lacing on the glass.

S-Grapefruit hops and some malt on the nose, nothing overwhelming.

T-Grapefruit, oranges, stand out from the hops and it has a nice malt backbone.

M-Not too carbonated or syrupy, just about right for the style.

D-Very good session beer. Its easy to drink and tastes really good.

Overall, I enjoyed this ipa given to me by a friend who came back from Michigan. I think the bottle gifted to me was a little old, so the hops may have died down a little. I would love to try a fresher bottle and to drink this again. I recommend this beer, but it by no means is as good as Two Hearted.

Had this on tap at the Grand Trunk pub in Detroit last weekend. Pours a dark golden orange. Tastes very bitter with a nice hop bite and has a tangy finish to it. Goes down quite smooth and is very sessionable. Shorts has disappointed me for the most part, but that could be due to bad/infected batches in bottling in the past with some of their other offerings. This was pretty solid on tap though.

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.
