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

Beer is amber and hazy with a thin white head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Aroma is hoppy but light with mostly piny with some earthiness in there as well. Minimal malt or sweetness.

Beer is medium to light in body and very bitter, finishes a little dry. Forward is a little thin but there are some pine notes in the midpalate. Its a decent IPA, very enjoyable.

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.
