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.

A - Pours golden amber with a one finger head. Left good lacing.

S - Grapefruit, pineapple, malty, moderate pine. Grapefruit really dominates the scent.

T - Apples, a bit of rotten banana, quite malty, pineapple in the middle, and a slightly resonous finish. Juicy as well.

M - Medium somewhat creamy body with almost no carbonation.

O - Overall, I've had a few too many IPA's tonight. Perhaps I have gotten sick of them tonight. I don't know. This one was good, but not a whole lot different than the other's i'kve had earlier.

THIS BEER IS HUGE!!! LOVE IT! Tons of Hops, so beware if that’s not your bag. Lots going on with the variety of hops used along with the pine and citrus, so it kicks you in the teeth and makes you think at the same time. Tastes great in the bottle but if you see it on tap jump on it. One great beer.

Thanks to shamrock for sending this my way!

Great looking IPA - hazy honey gold body with a creamy finger of paper white head that laces perfectly, tons of tiny beading from beginning to end.

Some dank citrus type hops, sweet corn malts, faint conifer presence, nice and balanced.

Not as rich as the nose would suggest... hops are muted to an abstract bitterness, malts are pleasant though and actually do fine with the citrus peel bite, which makes for a clean finish.
