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.

Spied a single sixer at the store and pounced! Beautiful orange color with nice head and lacing. Smelled of pine and citrus with a sharp tingle in the nose. Tasted of strong citrus hops with a strong bittering hop in the front and a sweet pine in the back. Mouthfeel was medium and carbonated quite well. Finish was bitter and dry. Drinkability was so good i polished off 5 while my cousin finished off my hopslam and batch 9000! I like Shorts Huma-Lupa-Licious!

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Portsmouth goblet. Date on bottle says it was packaged in March 09.

A - Pours a hazy, bright orange color. A creamy head forms with an off-white, slightly yellowish color, about 1 finger high. Head dissipates quickly and leaves a decent collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.

S - Smells of citrusy and spicy hops and bready malt. Well balanced, expected more hop aroma here. Beer is about 4 mths old, not too old but maybe like some others (Nugget Nectar, for one) the hops leave this one quickly.

T - Good full bitterness with lightly malty flavors underneath - bready, biscuity flavors. Bitterness lingers - some fruitiness appears as the beer warms and hops take on a sharper bite.

M - Beer has adequate body, slightly thin but appropriate for the style. Bitterness lingers into the aftertaste. Carbonation is on the higher side and gives a good prickly feeling in the mouth.

D - This is quite a good IPA with good flavor and medium body. Alcohol is present but not really overpowering. Feels pretty smooth going down...definitely could have another one or two of these.
