BEER INFO

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

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.

Can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet.

The beer that got me into IPA's,

Smell: Pine, grapefruit and good weed. I've never picked up on the latter until recently.

Taste: Hops. The taste really grows on me from the beginning to the end no matter if I drink it out of a bottle or on-tap.

Overall, a fantastic IPA. Medium body but with a huge bite to it. This beer is definitely for the IPA lover.
