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.

Bottle > Standard Pint

A - Hazed gold with two fingers of fluffy soapy off white head, thick lacing
S - Very very floral, some light fruit notes of orange and other citrus, grassy, slightly earthy, pine, cracker malt.
T - Extremely floral in flavor as well, mid way you get some bold bitterness, bitey pine, spicy hop resin, lightly sweet malt notes, just solid.
M - Super easy to put down for 7.7%, even though there's a serious bitterness, it kinda mellows out after a while.
O - Very impressed by this beer, one of the more floral IPA's I've had, and its just great to drink, balanced and flavorful.
