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.

I love IPA's and this one is truly among the best I have ever tried. The entire experience consuming this wonderful IPA fulfilled all of my expectations. I'm sorry I have not sampled it before now.
This IPA has a crisp and clean mouth feel enhanced by the flowery notes of the hops. The aromatics from the unique hops used in this IPA satisfy from start to finish as the brew travels across your pallet. Huma-Lupa-Licious hits the IPA sweet spot with a perfect malt canvas to facilitate a wonderful hoppy experience.
This brew is an instant favorite for me to revisit frequently. Also, another Michigan quality brew.

Huma is from Shorts Brewery in Bellaire.

The best way to describe this beer is... Hops on Hops on Hops! The pour is a cloudy dark gold, and smells strongly of pine needles. Huma is a strong IPA, and deservedly is one of the best IPAs in the State of Michigan. The head lasts for a decent amount of time, and the finish is crisp and sharp. It is extremely bitter, but has a citrusy after taste. Huma Lupa is advertised as having a good balance with the malt, which I did not think at first, but upon second tasting it is a very well balanced IPA.

drinkability: As with most IPAs excluding sessions, I do not think I could drink more than two of these beers without a spinning head and burned out tongue. A great beer, in small quantities.
