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

Great looking golden amber hue that's somewhat transparent. About a finger of head when it was poured, then dissipates down to a sticky froth. Great citrusy and piney smell from the hops. A dream to smell! A great malt backbone that has caramel notes, but also well balanced with the citrusy and piney hop bitterness. A true rollercoaster of malt and hops! It has a medium mouthfeel and it leaves the mouth a little dry. Overall, a great IPA, and one that I wouldn't hesitate to get again and again.
