BEER INFO

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.

Deliciously crisp IPA that offers a lot of floral citrus notes. It's quite bitter and perhaps a little less malty than some of the sweeter IPA's. This really allows the different flavors of the hops to shine through.

Served in a pint glass. Bottled on 11/03/2014.

Pours a nice orange with 1 finger of soapy white head the dissipates leaving a thin ring around the edges. Wonderful aromas of juicy grapefruit, pineapple upside down cake, oranges, and shortbread. Taste is malty upfront almost cake like then finishes with a piney hop bitterness that lingers slightly. Light body with a hint of carbonation.

Overall a top notch brew. A staple IPA for hopheads. Its up there with some of the best IPA's the midwest has to offer.

Cheers!

Draft pour at Stella’s in GR. The nose is pine and sticky resin. A hoppy hoppy IPA that veers into hopslam style territory in bitterness but with less sweetness and restraint. Truly a favorite for hopheads - definitely not a beer to take lightly. Good stuff from Shorts
