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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass

A: A golden copper color and a touch hazy. Pours to 1-2 fingers of thick head settling to a frothy collar and leaving behind a good amount of lacing.

S: First notes are of sweet malt (the nose has a big malt character); next are those wonderful American bittering hops (spicy and floral) with a bit of fruit in the background but not much.

T: Again, the initial flavor is dominated by malt, sweet and caramel, followed closely by a big punch of spicy and floral bitter hops with a bit of pine. The finish is very long and very, very dry. For my taste, there was too much emphasis on the hop profile and as one nears the end of the beer, my palate is feeling beat-up from hops.

M: Medium body and carbonation; full, creamy, round.

O: Nice malt character in the nose and taste but the finish is overly bitter, to the point of biting and ultimately pulls the beer out of balance. Some see this as a positive and to you hop-heads I say, this Huma’s for you!!
