BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Short's Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Availability: Year-round

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.
140 IBU

The color is a mandarin orange and copper with just a little haze. Nice two finger head that recedes to a nice film of foam and a little lacing stickage to the inside of my glass.

The aroma is a sweet orange peel with maybe a little caramelized brown sugar. This maybe the right mix of biscuity, toasted malts and heavy hops.

The taste starts sweet with toasted, dry biscuits and caramel. The hops bring add some wet grass, orange peel, and maple tree leaves. The finish is bitter and lasts long after you swallow.

The palate is cleansing nd clean with lots of citrus flavors hanging around after each sip. The IPA is well deserved of its acclaim.

First off I have to thank my friend Steve for hooking me up with this bottle during his recent brewery visit.

Poured the 12oz bottle into my DFH snifter to find a golden amber body with an inch and a half head. The aroma was dominated by the hops with some nice caramel malt hints. The flavor was good, again dominated by the hops, a good amount of bitterness but not overpowering and leads to a nice almost sweet aftertaste. The mouth feel was good with a nice amount of carbonation. Overall this was one was a little different but still very enjoyable.
