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.

9-13-14. Bottle. Water goblet.

A: pours a somewhat hazy golden amber. 1/4" frothy off-white head. Outstanding lacing. Small, visible effervescence. Decent retention, small thin cap.

S: Grapefruit; slightly tropical; slight sweetness.

T: Bitter arrival; lighter in body and taste than expected. Quite refreshing, surprisingly. Malty presence across mid-palate, but no sweetness. Tight, bitter finish.

M: Solidly mid weight. Good carbonation, not excessive.

O: Really excellent west-coast style IPA, in my book.
