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.

Spied a single sixer at the store and pounced! Beautiful orange color with nice head and lacing. Smelled of pine and citrus with a sharp tingle in the nose. Tasted of strong citrus hops with a strong bittering hop in the front and a sweet pine in the back. Mouthfeel was medium and carbonated quite well. Finish was bitter and dry. Drinkability was so good i polished off 5 while my cousin finished off my hopslam and batch 9000! I like Shorts Huma-Lupa-Licious!

Received in trade from jbck109 thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a deep golden/copper color with a finely bubbled white head that dissipates quickly to only a ring around the top of the glass. Smells like hops, yeah really. Grapefruit and sour orange are prevalent in the aroma backed up by fleeting hints of biscuit and caramel. Taste is resinous, citrus, with some biscuit malt found deep underneath. Every sip I take adds to the resinous and citrus onslaught besieging my palette. Resinous mouthfeel, medium to full body, light level of carbonation. This is definitely a beer to help get your hop fix on. I enjoyed this although at times I did feel it bracingly bitter.
