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.

Received from Tony412

A- Pours a nice, murky golden yellow into my DFH glass. A one finger bright white head that fades rather quickly and leaves a decent amount of lacing dripping down the glass.

S- Pineapple, sweet caramel malts, orange zest and honey are the first things I pick up. Some zesty notes of pine and sweet candied lemon peel come in after, along with some subtle notes of fermenting compost from the yeast.

T- Bitter orange zest, pineapple, pine sap, some sweet malts creep in along with some candied lemon and hints of yellow grapefruit. The yeast shines thru just enough.

M- A decent blend of bitter and sweet. The hoppy/piney bitterness hangs on and dominates though. The sweetness of the malt fades at first but comes back on the finish. Not as carbonated as some IPA's.

O- A really nice IPA! Very well balanced between citrus/pine/sugar and yeast. I wish I could get this near me in NY. Probably the best brew I've had from Short's so far. Easy to drink on a warm east coast spring day. Thank you Tony!
