Short's Huma Lupa Licious India Pale AleShort's Huma Lupa Licious India Pale Ale

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.

Pours a golden orange color with almost no head. Leaves a thin ring of lacing with moderate carbonation. Smells of citrus fruits like grapefruit and tangerine, some dankness to it, some pine, an herbal spiciness, light carmel and bread. Taste starts with lots of grapefruit, little tangerine, some pine, and grass. The middle bring a tiny amount of malt characteristics to somewhat balance it. Light carmel and some grain. Then it finishes very resinous with notes of pine, grapefruit rind, maybe blood orange, light carmel. Pretty spicy finish actually with a lingering bitterness. High medium body with a very oily and creamy texture. I’m a hophead, so I’m really glad I got to try this. It was not as fresh as I would like, but it is still a really solid ipa. If I lived in Michigan, I would definitely have this more often.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass
it is golden color and had a nice 1/2 inch head
smell is typical hops but has an amazing citrus ipa type of smell to it
nice mix of bittering hops
is easily drinkable the bitter hops overpower it
would definitely get again but would not put up as a top level but is still nice to drink
