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.

nickd717 (3573) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Bottle via trade on BA. Golden orange pour with medium white head. Aroma is grapefruit and floral hops and a little malt. Flavor is mostly hops - grapefruit and pine needles - as well as some pale/biscuity malt that does not add much sweetness, letting the hops do their thing. Dry, hoppy finish and a medium body. Good for the style.

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Mmmmm, delicious hoppy aroma. Nice and grape fruity with an obvious malt back bone. Flavour seems to be less hoppy than the taste would let on, kind of has a PNW feel to it without a ton of bittnerness. Great o drink, and easy, too!

Sonicdescent (384) - Donora, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Appears cloudy but bubbly in my Sam Adams Sensory glass. Not much in the way of head or retention. Apple cider look. Smells very fruity. Excuse my smell sense, I haven’t reviewed in a while so I can’t get much more specific than that. It is an enticing smell. Taste is a bit subdued compared to the smell, definitely some bitterness and a good taste, just a bit more mild than I would prefer. Mouth is thin and bubbly, a good mix, though I have been shown a thicker IPA and it was damn good. Another goodie from Shorts.

Smells of citrus and hops. The flavor starts well with a strong, hop and citrus taste. It tapers a little off at the end but is certainly not watery. Overall a good IPA.
