Availability: Year-round

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bought a new liter stein so I thought I'd christen it with this

A: a clear gold-orange color with minimal light head and not much lacing

S: hops, and alot of it too , very strong aroma

T: bread, malts, grain, citrus and hop loaded, very strong after taste.

M: mild amount of carbonation, very smooth, with strong after taste

O: Not much of a fan of IPAs, the hops are usually too over bearing for me, but not this one. There is a strong presence of hops both before and after but its not offensive, which is surprising to me for being an IPA, a pleasant surprise from one of my favorite breweries.
