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

Got this through a trade and was surprised. I am a fan of the bitterness. Very tasty.

Hop explosion up front, but is missing something on the back end.

Had this on tap in the Detroit airport. Nice light Amber color with ok head, minimal retention, very light lacing. Aroma was a bit of an earthy skunky flavor and the flavor followed. Not bad but I am not sure how fresh my beer was. Had it a second time and enjoyed much better. First try was definitely old. Scores upgraded accordingly
