Small bottle from Steve. Pours light grapefruit body with generous retained head. Mild hop aroma. A good drinkable bitterness, high IBU but not a palate shredder, fuller mouthfeel. Surprised at the high level of alcohol, it was well hid. Bottled in April, received in May. Good 1.5X IPA.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a pillow soft white head that lasts forever. Heavy on the pine and floral hop notes. A light grass aroma, some grapefruit, and maybe a hint of bread. The flavor is much different than expected. Intensely oily and resinous hop character. Tons of pine and grapefruit peel. A light malt sweetness and a substantial bitterness. The hop flavors seem to adhere to the tongue. Really interesting, and not in the usual sense of the word when it comes to Short’s.

Got a couple of these from finebeerguy. Thanks! No bottling date, but I believe this is quite fresh - 2 weeks old at most.

This smells like straight hop pellets after uncapping the bottle: pretty dank and aromatic. The pour is dark, cloudy, and amber hued, topped by three fingers of froth that leaves sheets of lacing. The nose is equal amounts pine and citrus, with a solid backbone of caramel malt. It's a little yeasty and soapy, too, but hops are dominant, bringing to mind candied oranges. Smells quite good, but not exceptional. Tastes citrus forward and fairly resinous. Big pine notes from the hop bill, backed by a good mount of caramel sweetness. Hops take on an herbal, almost minty profile toward the finish. Body is medium, heavier than I'd like. The malt backbone feels too substantial. The finish is quite bitter, but never as dry as I'd like - malt lingers well into the finish. This is enjoyable on the whole, but not overly memorable.

Bottle from FlandersNed - approximately two months old, but still in the ideal range for the style. Served in a Hill Farmstead glass.

A - Off-white foam settles to a thin cap, thicker collar, and splotchy lacework. Murky orange body.

S - Super earthy and piney hops, with some zesty grapefruit peel and rind mixed in for good measure. Malt character is quite bready, and there's a faint alcohol note present. Far less sweet than your typical DIPA.

T - The taste is a bit more to my liking with some candied citrus flavor balancing out the leafy and earthy hops. Malt is quite subdued, and there's a mild astringency in the finish, but thankfully the alcohol presence is diminished.

M - Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, dry finish, and some oily and resinous tooth-coating residuals. Mild alcohol warming, but nothing excessive for 8.5%.

D - A decent enough DIPA, but nothing special. Might make a nice change-of-pace beer while drinking in Michigan, but I prefer regular Huma-Lupa-Licious to be honest. Still, a few of use easily finished the 12oz bottle.

Thanks to CPAbeer and Stormking47 for this one.

App- A good darker hazy orange with some soft yellow floating downwards. Very nice one in head that was off white with a ton of cling down the glass.

Smell- Fairly unbalanced amount of malts and citrus. A large bitter and had some of that Shorts Spruce pilsner spice on the nose with with some dampness behind it.

Taste- This is what I said about regular Huma. Wow. This is a small bottle but has some huge flavors with it. Now double this one but doesnt all mesh well together. A lot of bitter behind this one and a bit dry on the flavor. Only a fraction of the citrus from the nose comes on the profile. More creamy and full hops with some spice come out.

Mouth- A fuller medium body with a medium carbonation that is a bit dry with a nice big bitter flavor. Lots of creamy and spicy hops on the finish.

Drink- This is quite spicy and bitter with the best of the other American IPA's but still has a strong creamy presence behind it. A nice beer but this profile is not for me.

Reviewing the Aww Jeah from Short's Brewing Company out of Bellaire, Michigan.

Score: 90

Bottle code "1193C21658." Served in a generic snifter glass and enjoyed on 08/19/13.

Appearance: Pours an orange copper with a half finger of off-white head that settles to a thin ring around the glass. Good lacing and retention. 4/5

Smell: Caramel malt, honey and fruity/grassy hops. A little spiciness too. As it warms, some tropical citrus comes through, but it is not juicy-fresh. 4/5

Taste: Bready malt, caramel malt, grapefruit, and floral hop flavor. Bitter grassiness towards the finish with a residual bitterness that lingers nicely. The hoppiness has a little dirty spiciness to it too, but this character is not very prominent. As this beer warms and layers, it becomes palate wreckingly bitter/hoppy. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Very light in body for an imperial IPA, low carbonation. The bitterness really sits and layers on the tongue, slightly singeing while the brew sits on the palate. 4/5

Overall: A total hop bomb palate killer. Nothing special, but well done. Cheers.

Cost: $15 for a six pack.

Thanks to Millerbuffoon for this one.

A - Pours a medium copper color with a two fingered fluffy white head, light carbonation.

S - Light caramel biscuit malt, small amount of citrus, and even what seems to be a small trace of chocolate (very odd, but it's there).

T - Tastes better than it smells. Lots of floral, orange, and grapefruit citrus with light caramel biscuit malt. There's a few other tropical fruits like pineapple and mango in there as well but the oranges run the show in this one.

M - Thick medium body and coats the mouth with oranges and grapefruit.

O - The weakest aspect of this beer is the aroma, too bad the orange zest doesn't come through more in the nose, it's what makes this beer appealing and why not capitalize on the best part of this beer? The alcohol is very well hidden.
