Pub Brew. Bourbon Huma is our best-selling American India Pale Ale aged in Bourbon barrels for up to 9 months. Initial malt sweetness is replaced with flavors of charred oak and sweet vanilla, followed by the standard Huma hop punch to the palate. This new combination creates the sensation of sipping on a sweet Bourbon that finishes like a bitter hop theme park in your mouth.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy vibrant copper color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter, piney, fruity, rough and earthy. The flavor was bitter, floral , herbal, earthy and rough. Long finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

Rich citrus and leafy nose. Has some oak as well. Strong alcohol from the bourbon barrel on the start. Middle is leafy hops and finishes bitter dry

This finished number two in my list of Michigan ipa. Same pine, oak, citrus flavor. Two hearted puts it all together better...just barely.

Poured from a bottle fresh into a pint glass straw with a whitish head. Aroma is grassy hops some ever so slight bourbon? Flavor is oaky grassy as heck hops with some sweetness. Bitter finish like a good IPA should Second time to consume this brew and continue to enjoy. The oakiness is upfront like the kick in your pants hops. If there was more sweet bourbon I would probably keel over in happiness. Alas still a decent brew from the state up north.

In a tulip, golden pour with no head to speak of. On tap at Guinness, Thee Irish Pub in the Detroit airport. This IPA has a definite place in my heart from here on. The waitress told me there were 156 IBUs and although I had a better idea, I decided to jump in with both feet. Nice and smooth like a fine bourbon, bitter without biting too hard. Aftertaste is boozy but lasts true to the taste of the beer throughout. An excellent addition to my meal and something I would buy again if given an opportunity.

From very old notes - Well, apparently I didn’t write much about this one, but there’s a rating and I thought it was very good. Full bodied. Big, bitter hop flavor with citrus. Long, bitter finish.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Tap: Golden-amber with rusty orange tints; mild haze throughout, topped with a weak head that lasts as a foamy white film & collar. Aroma is largely floral, like a flower patch. Hoppy perfume, mild caramel, big vanilla, & a gushing, tangerine fruitiness. Not much bourbon explicitly, but lots of reminders of spicy oak & vanilla. The flavor is definitely more barrel-heavy... The first sip stings with bitter hop perfume, spicy tannins, ashy hop leaves, rose pedals, leading to a warming, bourbon-laden finish. Warmth opens up mild notes of bitter citrus peel & tangerine zest, but the aftertaste is still dominated with florals, wood, & bourbon. Mild vanilla & a hint of toffee malt present at times. Not bad, a decent attempt at a polarizing style that I’m still not a huge fan of. I’d honestly rather just have regular Huma.
