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.

Huma is from Shorts Brewery in Bellaire.

The best way to describe this beer is... Hops on Hops on Hops! The pour is a cloudy dark gold, and smells strongly of pine needles. Huma is a strong IPA, and deservedly is one of the best IPAs in the State of Michigan. The head lasts for a decent amount of time, and the finish is crisp and sharp. It is extremely bitter, but has a citrusy after taste. Huma Lupa is advertised as having a good balance with the malt, which I did not think at first, but upon second tasting it is a very well balanced IPA.

drinkability: As with most IPAs excluding sessions, I do not think I could drink more than two of these beers without a spinning head and burned out tongue. A great beer, in small quantities.

A very bitter and hoppy India Pale Ale. Leaves a bit of a hoppy aftertaste which characterizes many IPAs. Golden hazy orangish color when poured with a white head. This beer has a hint of grapefruit which is overpowered by the hops. There is minimal malt presence. Overall, I would highly reccomend this beer by Shorts

Probably may favorite India pale ale. It is very well balanced with a great hoppy taste that complements many types of dinners. A lot of IPAs taste the same to me, but this one tends to stand out and the creative name probably helps. I tend to prefer this in the summer even over fruiter and lighter beers.
