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.

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.

One of the better IPAs I've ever had.

Picked it up in Michigan since I don't get them in Illinois. No expiration date found on the bottle.

Not much malt in the aroma (no complaints there). Surprisingly low hops there, but still smells wonderful.

Beautiful amber color. Low head, minimal lacing. Very clear.

Great bitterness-not overly so like some IPAs. Must be some great malt backing it up. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Finishes dry, which I like.

Overall, I really like this beer. I think it's a great representation of the American IPA style. I would definitely buy it again.
