ControversiALE, FKA Hangin’ Frank, is a tribute to Simcoe hops. Simcoe hops are extremely sought after and limited, so Short’s is excited to share this brew with Michigan craft beer lovers every spring. The earthy, citrus and pine-laced aroma is instantly delectable. A large amount of toasted grains and high alpha hops form a perfect union that creates the sensation of toasted sourdough covered with grapefruit hop marmalade. While this beer is hopped like IPA, it drinks like Pale Ale. The light, refreshing qualities of this beer make it perfect for springtime.

Aroma has more of a grainy note than the hops. A nice deep golden hue with thin light head. Slight citrus but predominantly piney to me, neat for a pale. Short’s brews always please a hophead in any style. Crisp and slightly creamy feel with a great length aftertaste. I recommend this beer to my friends that can’t appreciate the epicness that is Short’s Huma Lupa Liscious.

BBB63 (5941) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle and served in tulip: Pours a clean deep golden hue with a fading head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of mango, pineapple, grapefruit, resin, pine, clove and biscuity and toasted malts. Classic SD styled water profile it seems as well... hint of onion as it warms. The taste is bitter but not blow yr face off bitter, clean fruity and biscuity notes supported by an earthy and mineral presence. Almost an oak like dryness upon the finish. The mouth feel is moderately aggressive but oh so drinkable, so much so I nearly finished the beer before I could rate it. That is always a complement, drinking something so fast ’cause it so good that you almost (or sometimes sadly) forget to formulate thoughts for a review... gotta get me a sixer of this.
