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 thats a strong punch of hops in the mouth. HELLO! Ok, so... pours very nice hazy golden with a nice off white head that settles to a skim on the surface of the beer thru out. Sticky lacing also very nice. Smells of strong Hops and a Citrus/pine combination. Taste is defintly a bit heavy for me, bitter. Yet still I keep drinking, getn into IPAs little by little. But this ones a strong sucker WoW. If u like strong hops and tasty beer, go get you one of these bad boys!
CHEERS!

Look: oragne-y gold color
Smell: very hoppy, touch of citrus notes
Taste: overwhelming hops (expected), slight pine taste
Aftertaste: hops stay with you, slightly sweet VERY slightly
Overall: not my favorite, but pretty ok for an IPA

Exceptional IPA with strong pine, citrus, and light spice hop aroma and taste. Generous bittering hop additions and a medium body balance very well, if you can take the up-front hop blast.
