BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Short's Brewing Company
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

Poured into a teku pint. Bottom of can says 08/16/16.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Refreshing aroma of piney, herbal hops that also has a bit of citrus going on and some sweet cereal grain malt.

T- Great synthesis of flavor with the vegetal but still somewhat fruity hop flavor jiving with the sweetness of the malt all while being accentuated by the higher level of bitterness. The bitterness also provides some dryness to offset the sweetness of the malt. Lots of resinous quality and the bitterness stays solid throughout the entire drink.

M- Sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- You can taste the 140 IBUs but it works within the construct of the flavor profile. Tasty stuff and something I would certainly recommend to someone looking for an IPA with a palate wrecking type of bitterness.
