Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: arizcards on 06-13-2004

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.

Hop explosion up front, but is missing something on the back end.

Had this on tap in the Detroit airport. Nice light Amber color with ok head, minimal retention, very light lacing. Aroma was a bit of an earthy skunky flavor and the flavor followed. Not bad but I am not sure how fresh my beer was. Had it a second time and enjoyed much better. First try was definitely old. Scores upgraded accordingly
