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.

Purchased from Keweenaw Co-Op for $10.99/6 pack. Poured from bottle into swifter. Can not read black bottled on date.

Appearance: Pours a hazy burnt Orange with copper hues. Pours a lively half finger white head. Prominent sticky lacing ensues.

Smell: Bright floral hop aroma. Initial blast of yeast, providing great body to citrus, pipe smoke, and earthy spruce.

Taste: This beer has some real crunchy feel, finished by sugary tangerine. Strong hop presence. Really fantastic. Enough malt bill to hold up to this hop bomb. It's tasty.

Mouth: Good carbonation lends support for the dryness. Puckering hops in this bottle.

Drink and overall: very drinkable. Great overall beer. Fortunate to have access to this guy. Can stand up to some other great MI IPAs.

This Michigan specimen poured cold into the pint glass, yet another Ohoove "import", shows a cloudy orange-golden amber hue with a decent off-white head and lots of lacing. The aroma is a great piny and citrus blend with nutbread throughout, smooth but evidencing good bitterness. The taste brings out lots of bitter pine, peppered with lively carbonation in a beautiful, near full bodied brew. I get hints of earthy rye and light lemon. This stuff just disappears into the old gullet, very drinkable if you crave the bitter hops as you should! I loved it and could see this being a showstopper beer for a backyard get together as much as about any other occasion that a drinkable tasty brew is appreciated.
