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.

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.

Pours medium orange with true lace rings from an off-white head.

Big pine and toasted malt aromas. Not much else.

Big pine hop flavor, and toasted malt. No caramel, no fruit. This one kinda dries out. Dry dark toast and hops? Lingering hop-bitterness, not just bitter. I like this.

Medium bodied and appropriately carbonated.

An easy drinker. Not super complex, but they go everything right. Nothing but what you want. Great IPA.
