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.

Bottle from a trade with Chris in Michigan. Poured into snifter at home. Light looking golden amber with a mostly clearness. Thick white head and some solid lacing. Aroma was very powerful especially for the color of the beer. Very pine and pine resin notes with a heavy malt presence. Also citrus, earth, leather and cereal. Taste was very pine and bitter with slight citrus and hay. Mostly light in body, medium heavy in carbonation. Dry, pine, bitter finish. Overall good and packed full of flavors for an IPA.

Hazy brew with golden amber colour. Very hoppy aroma with citrus and sports a certain resinous quality. Medium body, bitter and leafy, and some grape fruit. Decent IPA.

Barwa: bursztynowa, klarowna. Piana średnio-pęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca, zanikła całkowicie po paru minutach. Aromat: Intensywny, mocno chmielowy, raczej leśny niż cytrusowy. Smak: Głównie chmielowy, mocno goryczkowy (wg producenta 96 IBU, wg ratebeer nawet 140), ale nie przypominający chmielu w granulkach. Niemniej goryczka bardzo duża , wręcza zalegająca. Mimo tego aż tak nie męczy. Ogólnie ciekawe piwo, choć stosunek ceny do jakości nieadekwatny. Aromat mógłby być bardziej cytrusowy, a podstawa bardziej pełna, bowiem brakuje mi tu ciała. Przyzwoite piwo, ale to zbyt mało, jak za tą cenę, zwłaszcza, że Good Humans było znacznie ciekawsze, a goryczkę miało mniejszą. Znacznie...

From a bottle into a tulip,sparce,diminishing fizzy head with fair lacing, dark yellowish amber in color. Heavy grapefruity orange with a light touch of alcohol in the nose. Medium body, alittle thin, average carbonation,moderate sweetness with heavy bitterness from the large amount of hops.The short lived finish was alittle to quick, but still a good brew.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Clear orangey yellow with off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Hop taste with some very subtle nutty undertones. Flavours dissipate quite quickly in the mouth to a bland finish. Quite dry finish. Medium body.

Has a nice looking light copper color, though from the bottle I poured there wasn’t much of a head. The aroma is hops and the flavor is a ridiculous amount of hops. Finish is dry and there’s also some hints of floral sweetness. Quite good.

A very good IPA. Such a great Michigan classic. You can definetly taste the hop bitterness, and its very floral.

Pint at Jacoby’s in Detroit. The nose on this one was the main event. It smelled like a room full of pot smoke. Very dank, heavy, sweet and a touch of pepper and leather in there too. It has a red-orange appearance and very little foam on top. The taste wasn’t nearly as bold as the aroma. It was sweet, bitterly hopped, and had a malty backbone that balanced things out with the ripe hop smell. Medium-to-heavy bodied, low carbonation. Overall this one is worth trying out and I’d like to try it again sometime when I know it’s freshly bottled and the hops are at their height.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy amber orange with a short white head and nice lacing. Aroma and flavor is caramel covered spruce tree with a bitter finish that lingers and coats the back roof of your mouth.
