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.

No Date on the bottle

A - Pours out dark golden with a haze accompanied by a slight white head that dissipated rather fast.

S - There is a earthy, grassy hops with a nice strong biscuit, hay, woody, nutty malt presence. This bottle could be old but am unsure with no date but the hops are really not present here.

T - The taste more powerful then the nose with malts then hops to follow. It has a strong bitter bite with floral, grassy, earthy, nutty, and biscuit notes. Definitely hoped forward, and does not leave your palate un-harmed. Slight alcohol in the back and perhaps some saltiness, as the hops die off.

M - Medium bodied and soft with a good amount of carbonation to keep the bitter bite moving. On the dry side and leaves mouth wanting more. Bitterness bites into your taste buds here so watch out.

O - A nice local IPA that is relatively easy to find with a good price. Its one of shorts better beers in my opinion. Has a very bitter bite for you hop heads and will not leave you disappointed, and one I turn to when I want a hop bomb. Not the best tasting beer but it has a Bite to remember, Cheers!

On tap at DTW airport in nonic pint glass - slight haze, but nice floral and spicy aroma. Taste is bitter and dry, but appropriate for style with pleasant mouthfeel. Light lacing and head retention - this may partially be due to how clean the glass was. No off flavors detected. Positive overall impression.
