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

Poured on draft in Detroit airport.

A: Golden honey yellow with two finger white head and average lacing.

S: Grapefruit, pine, and a touch of honey.

T: Bitter hops mixed with some citrus and malt sweetness.

M: Medium body leaving some oily hop resin. Crisp dry finish.

O: Very good IPA, very much hop forward. I'm not sure this was the freshest keg, and would like to find a good fresh bottle.

Serving type: on-tap

I love IPA's and this one is truly among the best I have ever tried. The entire experience consuming this wonderful IPA fulfilled all of my expectations. I'm sorry I have not sampled it before now.
This IPA has a crisp and clean mouth feel enhanced by the flowery notes of the hops. The aromatics from the unique hops used in this IPA satisfy from start to finish as the brew travels across your pallet. Huma-Lupa-Licious hits the IPA sweet spot with a perfect malt canvas to facilitate a wonderful hoppy experience.
This brew is an instant favorite for me to revisit frequently. Also, another Michigan quality brew.
