BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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

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.

Got this brew as an extra from heliosphann. Thanks a ton Scott!

Pours a hazy orange amber into a Darkness tulip. Nice tan head with decent retention, with a creamy consistency. Leaves a little lacing here and there.

The nose is surprisingly malty. There is a nice piney bitterness going on, but the malt backbone sticks out.

The taste department is much more bitter than the nose leads on. Piney and resiny hops dominate and the bitterness takes over, almost completely covering up the malt backbone. Very nice.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a nice bitter bite. Appropriate carbonation level. Nice lingering bitter aftertaste. Drinkability is good.

A great introductory brew to Shorts. I'm impressed. It's not the best IPA in the world, but it's definitely a tasty and easy drinking one. Maybe not the IPA for someone who is just starting out with craft beer, but if your a hop head you'll like this one.
