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.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange body with a small white head. Nose is piney syrup tones, cacti, leaves and hints of grass and citrus. Taste is pine, citrus peel, syrup, grainy caramel and hints of grass, herbs and peaches in the back. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Another American IPA which was probably quite different (and most probably quite a bit better) before it undertook the long journey to Bergen via lots of stops. Still very nice, though.

Holtguy (114) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Good IPA. Orange and cloudy with citrus aroma. Flavor is a bit unbalanced towards bitterness, but I think that’s what they were going for. Good, but too many better IPAs out there for me to rate higher.

RespertFTW (515) - Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle. Murky orange and amber. Malt hop citrus aroma. Not a lot of the citrus makes it through to the flavor. Pretty bitter.

deyholla (6490) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 27, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of pine and citrus with a nice grain backbone. Flavor has notes of pine and grass that grows to a bit of resin with a grain backing.
