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.

A- Medium amber body with a thin white head that fizzles into a ring of bubbles. Some lacing around the edges and some transparency in an otherwise cloudy body.

S- Lots of pine and citrus with a strong biscuity malt aroma. Smells like a balanced IPA rather than a hop bomb.

T- I taste a nice balanced IPA with lots of biscuity malts coming through to balance out the intense piney hop flavor. Very balanced, very drinkable.

M- Sting on the tongue, medium body, medium carbonation.

O- This one was a good, but not great IPA. Very balanced and drinkable.

Huma Lupa Licious pours a clear amber with a two-finger creamy white head on top. The foam fades slowly leaving behind a netted pattern of lace on the glass.

The aroma has notes of caramel malt, bread, orange citrus and pine. It's not a very strong aroma and leans toward the malt side.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is creamy on the palate with moderate carbonation. The flavor is more hoppy than the aroma. It begins with orange/grapefruit citrus and a little pine. The hops are balanced with some sweet caramel malt and a little bread. A touch of tropical fruit is also present. It finishes bitter with some earthy grass flavors. Once gone the citrus and caramel sweetness lingers on the palate.

A nicely well balanced beer that's a little funky in the flavor. Descent everyday IPA.

About 2+ months old from the bottle date, so please take that into consideration.

Pours a nice dense orange with 1 finger of head. A lot of streaming bubbles, and a lot of lacing.

I can smell the hops with only a crack of the cap. Smell is citrus and grassy. Get a dank, grassy, weed like smell.

Taste is very bitter. It get nice citrus hops taste that quickly gives way to bitterness. The bitterness almost takes away from the overall taste because its too lingering.

I was looking for an over the top hoppy beer and this delivered.
