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

Poured about 14 oz. out of my home tap system into a snifter.

A- Poured a dark amber with about a quarter inch of white head.

S- A beautiful aroma of a heavy dosage and wide variety of hops.

T- As expected lots of hops. There is however and slight hint of malt in the background, which, no doubt contributes to the 6.7% ABV.

M- Good carbonation (Set at 5 PSI). I can definitely feel the bitterness on my tongue.

D- I cannot drink too much of this beer consecutively.
