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

WOW!!!! Outstanding, I cannot believe that I found a year round beer that tops bells 2 hearted ale. they're out there but very few, and very far between. New go to beer. Definitely tops last years hopslams, maybe not the hopslams from the year before, but WOW... I'm absolutely pissed I got a single and not a 6 pack.

Tasty average ipa. Nothing special or different. Very refreshing, something you can drink more than just a few if you want too.
