A - hazy dark yellow or light orange, a thin white head that fades to a ring quickly, no visible carbonatio.
S - nice big hop profile, citrus, grapefruit end of the hop scale, A supreme candied sweetness in the backgrounf make for one of the more balanced aromas I have experienced in an IPA
T - THe hops come to the forehground and dominate the flavor,and drown out any sweetness, the hops skew away fromt he citrus/grapefruit end to equal amounts piney-ness. A big hop profile, maybe a little sweetness in the finish. Nice job.
M&D&O - not as balanced as the smell indicated it would be, the hops are killer, a great piney profile and a nice IPA. Never noticed such a dichotomy in the smell and taste in a standard IPA.
I was told this, along with a couple other Short's beer is their first foray into New England and is a litmus test of the region. Hey Shorts - COME TO NEW ENGLAND PERMANENTLY!!

The bottle says 01/09/13. It pours amber with a little orange glow and a little lacy white head. There is balance in the aroma between sweet malt, caramel and biscut, and soft pine, a little earthiness, and rich grapefruit hops. The balance is excellent between the the rich malt and the acidic hops. A big burst of bitterness rounded out by a fairly tick mouthfeel and a lingering taste of grapefruit and almost copper bitterness. This is really one of the nicest bitternesses I've had on an IPA in a while! I quite like this one for the balance of the malts, the bitterness, and the acidity. It's not going to knock you out with aroma hops like some IPAs might, but there is something nice to be said about a rich bitterness and a great malt character.

A- Medium amber body with a thin white head that fizzles into a ring of bubbles. Some lacing around the edges and some transparency in an otherwise cloudy body.
S- Lots of pine and citrus with a strong biscuity malt aroma. Smells like a balanced IPA rather than a hop bomb.
T- I taste a nice balanced IPA with lots of biscuity malts coming through to balance out the intense piney hop flavor. Very balanced, very drinkable.
M- Sting on the tongue, medium body, medium carbonation.
O- This one was a good, but not great IPA. Very balanced and drinkable.

Huma Lupa Licious pours a clear amber with a two-finger creamy white head on top. The foam fades slowly leaving behind a netted pattern of lace on the glass.
The aroma has notes of caramel malt, bread, orange citrus and pine. It's not a very strong aroma and leans toward the malt side.
Each sip of this medium bodied beer is creamy on the palate with moderate carbonation. The flavor is more hoppy than the aroma. It begins with orange/grapefruit citrus and a little pine. The hops are balanced with some sweet caramel malt and a little bread. A touch of tropical fruit is also present. It finishes bitter with some earthy grass flavors. Once gone the citrus and caramel sweetness lingers on the palate.
A nicely well balanced beer that's a little funky in the flavor. Descent everyday IPA.
