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.

Metalhead (643) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2010
Pretty average IPA. Gold orange pour. Ok head,medium lacing. Aroma of citrus and mild pine hop. Pretty much tastes how it smells with some mild malt to balance it. First few sips the finish was a little too dry. Got better after a few minutes. Easy to drink but nothing mind blowing.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
Sample at Schlafly Repeal. A fine beer and an excellent example of the Americanized style. Some big biting hops are tart citrus. Almost cloying but still "in the zone." Caramel, if there, is not noticed. A hopheads delight.

GranvilleTim (1854) - Granville, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
Golden yellow pour with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is soft piney hops. Nice mellow flavor. Lacing shown after the first sip. Piney hops were not overbearing. Quite nice.

Terminus (3570) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2010
tap at the repeal prohibition festival at Schalfly in Maplewood, MO. lite orange with a off-white soapy head. aweosme noese-nice pine, citrus, grapefruit, orange and some resin. long piney grapefruit flavors which were much less citrus than the nose would tell. lots of grapefruit and pine on the flavors with a long resinous finish. totally palate drying finish, almost dirty. i like this type of ipa so i gave it a pretty decent score.

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2010
nose is big balance of irish red-like malt and piney hops. big sticky caramel that pleases even without a real toffee element. appearance is well hazed sienna with wispy head and essentially nil legs. flavor is subdued pine, great caramel and moments of soft peach. needles and pins of bitterness really linger.

dukefan (215) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2010
On draft at Schlafly’s Beer Fest. Plenty of others have written this up, so personal opinion - the best base IPA (over Bell’s, Kuhnhenn, Dark Horse and Founders) made in the State of Michigan. Nice hoppy crispness paired with a solid malt backbone that holds it all together. Shorts is simply the best in Michigan.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2010
Bottle at Sheffield’s Chicago. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold. Nose is spicy and resiny with some soft and full grain notes in the background. On taste, it is far more bitter than you realize, tons of resiny notes and a nice malt backbone. Pretty damn well structured.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 18, 2010
(draught at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition) hazy amber. Resiny pine hop aroma. Flavor is earthy pine hops but with a decent malt balance.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. The hops on this one are very earthy but not overwhelming on the immediate taste. Not much else is going on in this fairly light beer. The aftertaste is a bit harsh with the high alfa acids. Nothing particularly interesting.

Butters (4045) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. Clear golden amber with ring of white head. Nose is a well balanced earthy piney hop. Flavor has a lingering floral bitterness. Pretty tasty stuff.
