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.

12oz bottle from TRT. Pours a hazy straw color with a thick frothy white head. Aroma of older citrus, caramel malt, and finishing with rotted lemons. Taste bitter lemon, orange, and grapefruit, grass, and caramel malt sweetness. Def the best beer I’ve had so far from Shorts.

Aroma is yeasty and bread. Flavor is strange, biscuit, yeast bread wih a super bitter dry finish. Quite disappointed in this one. Was a hyper beer release and I think it was poor I would buy 1 before investing in a sixer

Very earthy. Pine and resin, a whole lot of hops. Bitter, dry, some grapefruit. Very crisp and punchy. Full and strong.

italianjohn (2890) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottled 2/05/16 so very fresh ... Cloudy golden pour with a thin white soapy head and light lacing .... Aroma of citrusy and floral hops ... Has a earthy and piney aroma as well .... Taste is of citrusy and rindy hops with grapefruit, orange and earthy fruits .... Has piney qualities and a distinct floral hop .... Dry and lightly bitter with a juicy fruit malt to it .... Dry fresh and decent

ElCapitan22 (338) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Pours hazy and gold in color. There is some good lacing but little head retention. Smells of nothing apart from some honeysuckle. Tastes grassy and hoppy. Quite disappointing to be honest.

dagimp (951) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2016
From a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Bottle is about 2.5 weeks old. Pours a pretty dark copper. Few inches of frothy white head and some lacing. Piney aroma. Mouthfeel is pretty thick and malty. Really, too thick and heavy for an IPA. Taste is bitter pine.... and not much else. Very one dimensional without a lot of flavor. If you like thick, heavy, piney and very bitter IPAs, this is for you. It ain’t for me.

echudy (151) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Has a nice sweet hop flavor, with a somewhat cloudy light yellow golden color. Has some ok hop flavors, but is quickly masked with bitterness. Just your average IPA with nothing much to show for it

(Thanks for the power of suggestion, ElManana! :p ) Also floral, bit soapy, some honey. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, honey, bitter, some peanuts, bit metallic. Aftertaste: bit sweet, malty, hoppy, grassy, more peanut, little funky.

On tap at BW3 in Holland, MI. First time trying this beer and it isn't so hoppy to start with. Going down nice with the wings
