BEER INFO

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.

Pours medium orange with true lace rings from an off-white head.

Big pine and toasted malt aromas. Not much else.

Big pine hop flavor, and toasted malt. No caramel, no fruit. This one kinda dries out. Dry dark toast and hops? Lingering hop-bitterness, not just bitter. I like this.

Medium bodied and appropriately carbonated.

An easy drinker. Not super complex, but they go everything right. Nothing but what you want. Great IPA.

Poured a nice dark golden pale and smelled strongly of citrusy hops. The taste was definitely more hops and finished with a solid bitterness. The mouthfeel was solid, medium-high but not so much that it lessened its drinkability, which was pretty high. Not too bitter and not too much alcohol. Overall a very good IPA. Another solid turnout from yet another solid Michigan brewery!
