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

Super thanks to gnemesis for the amazing box of Short's he sent my way!!!

a - poured the 12oz'er into my capt lawrence tasting tulip. classic transparent honey copper with a white foamy bubbly head that hung around for a while.

s - sweetened hops. the malts really chill out the hops on this and hop profile is relatively tame. i actually dig this over the in your face knock you down hopping. citirically sweet.

t - what wasn't there hopwise in the nose is certainly in the flavor. really nice. hoppy flavor dominates at first, ends with a soft piney bitterness. earthy grapefruit with a gentle sweetening in the middle. quite good and quite balanced.

m/d - medium bodied with a cooling oh so subtle bitter aftertaste. kind of filling. this is a really nice ipa. i'd put it against any of the well known and talked about ipas out there.
