Availability: Year-round

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

I got this on tap at HopCat (4 Short's on tap) in Grand Rapids - and ordered a growler of this to go. This is my first experience with Short's brewery.

I poured into a large tulip glass and t was a cloudy copper/amber color... very floral and hoppy. One finger of head that quickly dissipated leaving a circle that laces the glass as I drink it down.

Bold flavor with hints of malt and caramel and citrus. There's something light-fruity here - maybe apples? While the flavor is bold, the body is light enough that it's very drinkable.

Definitely recommend it if you ever find it anywhere. It's quite difficult to find.

Serving type: on-tap
