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.

Pours a moderately hazy honey-gold bordering on orange with a rich, rocky one-finger cream-colored head that displays excellent retention, leaving a pretty network of lacing on the inside of the glass. Big hoppy nose -- good citrus presence, but primarily piney, resiny and floral notes. Big citrusy and piney hops on the tongue. Significant malt backbone gives this good balance in the middle, giving way to a peanut skin flavor, ultimately moving to a bitter lingering finish that almost borders on the astringent but fortunately stops just short. Oily mouthfeel with tingly carbonation. Perhaps a little bit big and intense to session, but very enjoyable. Recommended.

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!
