Short's Brew Huma Lupa Licious IPA

Short's Brew Huma Lupa Licious India Pale Ale. A complex malt and hop theme park in your mouth. Brewed and bottled by Short's Brewery in Elk Rapids, Michigan. 7.7% ABV. 99 IBU.

Appearance: clear, bright golden coloring, long lasting, lovely white head.

In the nose: all kinds of pine, lower levels of citrus and such. Very nice.

In the mouth: Mmm. Just right. Bright hops on the palate, very tasty. Medium bodied, lingering hoppy finish. An IPA in the best tradition. Needless to say, I like this one.

From the website: Huma Lupa Licious’ name derives from the hop plant, Humulus lupulus. It is brewed with five different hop varieties: Centennial, Columbus, Chinook, Cascade, and Palisade. Huma is known for having an intense bitterness that is balanced by a rich malty flavor. A citrus and floral aroma complements the unique qualities of Short’s flagship India Pale Ale.
