Whoa. You smell that? That’s a super IPA hop juice scent on the nose. But take a sip & where did them there hops get to? Buried by the malt. Now you can’t read through a couple of reviews on ratebeer without stumbling onto some ipa fundamentalist cursing malt balanced ipa’s (and I usually disagree with ’em) but the malt here crushes the promise of hops in the aroma. Like ordering a cheeseburger & ending up with a grilled cheese.

Tasted from a 12oz bottle (thanks for bringing it back to Chicago Pablo). It poured a hazy orange with a thin, bubbly, off-white head. Has a hoppy nose with a touch of lemongrass. Very nice bitter hop taste.

Pours a golden orange color with almost no head. Leaves a thin ring of lacing with moderate carbonation. Smells of citrus fruits like grapefruit and tangerine, some dankness to it, some pine, an herbal spiciness, light carmel and bread. Taste starts with lots of grapefruit, little tangerine, some pine, and grass. The middle bring a tiny amount of malt characteristics to somewhat balance it. Light carmel and some grain. Then it finishes very resinous with notes of pine, grapefruit rind, maybe blood orange, light carmel. Pretty spicy finish actually with a lingering bitterness. High medium body with a very oily and creamy texture. I’m a hophead, so I’m really glad I got to try this. It was not as fresh as I would like, but it is still a really solid ipa. If I lived in Michigan, I would definitely have this more often.

Bottle in Traverse City, pours a cloudy hazy amber orange with no real head.Nose is hoppy and full of pine. Bitter and hoppy with no appreciable citrus , presumably from the choice of hops. Finish is bitter and lingering. Quaff Score 6 / 10

Espuma escasa pero persistente. Ároma froral a lúpulo, fuerte pero no mucho. Sabor muy amargo, seca la boca, aunque se nota el dulce de la malta.

Very strong hop aroma and full bodied bitterness that lingered pleasingly on my palate. wasn’t sure what to expect with a gimmicky name, but Huma-Lupa-Licious was top notch.
