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.

A very bitter and hoppy India Pale Ale. Leaves a bit of a hoppy aftertaste which characterizes many IPAs. Golden hazy orangish color when poured with a white head. This beer has a hint of grapefruit which is overpowered by the hops. There is minimal malt presence. Overall, I would highly reccomend this beer by Shorts

Probably may favorite India pale ale. It is very well balanced with a great hoppy taste that complements many types of dinners. A lot of IPAs taste the same to me, but this one tends to stand out and the creative name probably helps. I tend to prefer this in the summer even over fruiter and lighter beers.
