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

A: Copper filtered with tinge of haze, 4 fingers of off white yellowish head leaving a chunky lacing.


S: Caramel, orange candy, pine, toasted malty quality, slight medicinal.


T: Flavour profile dances in the mouth. The malt quality reminds me of London Pride, lots of orange candy and pine, a bitterness that dances like sunshine through pine trees. Light sweetness, a little honey.


M: Medium body, little carbonation.


O: Excellent brew. Got this in Frankenmuth near the beginning of my trip in North America, drinking it the last day here, though the flavour profile still shines. New Hamburg, Aug 26th, 2014.
