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.
140 IBU

On draft at HopCatz. Golden amber in color with a sizable head. Smell is all hops. Resiny and floral. Right there with some of the better made IPA's. Mouthfeel was crisp and smooth for the amount of hops present. Really enjoyed the pint and didn't tire of drinking it. Very good.

Acquired via trade from jayli, so a big “Thank you” goes out to her. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out strong burst of grassy hops bitterness followed by some citrus and caramel sweetness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and provides a good balance but the hops presence clearly dominates. The after-taste is hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very solid IPA worth pounding down for a long time.

Poured about 14 oz. out of my home tap system into a snifter.

A- Poured a dark amber with about a quarter inch of white head.

S- A beautiful aroma of a heavy dosage and wide variety of hops.

T- As expected lots of hops. There is however and slight hint of malt in the background, which, no doubt contributes to the 6.7% ABV.

M- Good carbonation (Set at 5 PSI). I can definitely feel the bitterness on my tongue.

D- I cannot drink too much of this beer consecutively.
