COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A complex malt and hop theme park in your mouth
Huma Lupa Licious’ name derives from the hop plant, Humulus lupulus. It is Short’s best-selling India Pale Ale. Huma Lupa Licious is brewed with five different hop varieties, providing a punch to the palate. Between the beer’s abundance of hops, and the type of hops used in its creation, it has a delicious bitter taste and enticing citrus aroma. The hearty malt bill melds well with the hops for a perfect balance.

Huma Lupa Licious is the product of Joe Short wanting to create the ultimate IPA experience. Originally, Huma Lupa Licious was named Humulus Lupulus Maximus, and went through several recipe changes before settling on the recipe we know and love today.

Strangebrewer (891) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
bottle. Poured hazy medium amber with a creamy off-white head. Fresh perfumery hop aroma. Full bodied, prickly dry mouthfeel with an astringent finish. Flavour is all hop, peppery, herbal, tart citrus notes. This beer delivers a punch, a nice sipper.

libertine (223) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2014
pours a hazy light amber with a thick tan head. nice soapy lacing. aroma is piney citrus hops, toasted malt, and tropical fruit. Taste starts sweet and gradually becomes resinous. Ridiculous how balanced this is. Medium body and carbonation with creamy/slick mouth fell. Finishes very dry. My favorite shorts product yet. Not a big shorts fan, but this is really good.

Attractive copper color with minimal, pretty light tan head. Hoppy aroma, pine, with a touch of spice, particularly clove. Hoppy taste, mostly the hop bitterness, no pronounced single hop flavor - just as you might expect from a beer made with 5 different hop varieties. A bit of citrus and pine but not a one dimensionally hop bomb. Lacks the complexity, and for my own taste, the hop balance of a great IPA, but still quite enjoyable - a good IPA.

Bottle to taster Rye malt, grapefruit, lots of pine, some flowers, and pepper. It’s a clear light amber with a creamy 1/2 cm off white head. Taste is fruity, grapefruit, pine resin, lots of bitterness. Not a sessional IPA, but a great starter to any night.
