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

Exceptional IPA with strong pine, citrus, and light spice hop aroma and taste. Generous bittering hop additions and a medium body balance very well, if you can take the up-front hop blast.

Great year-round IPA from Shorts. Similar flavors to Two Hearted, more bitter though.

I don't understand all the hoopla about this beer. It's good. But I've been down this hop oil road before with much better results. A Torpedo or Centennial is cheaper and better.
