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.

Golden pour, a thin, lingering head. Rests in glass a delightful amber color. Aroma is strongly citrus, slightly piney. Flavor has stronger pine notes, citrus still there: tangerine, grapefruit, also pineapple. Aftertaste very bitter, some citrus and pine still there. Moderate carbonation. Will buy again. A nice, rich flavored beer I’d recommend to friends I don’t have.

Pours a translucent golden amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, orange, tea, caramel, light vegetal notes and bready. Flavor of the same but didn’t ge the vegetal.

12 oz. cloudy burnished medium amber. dense creamy tan head, really sticks around. big piney nose. creamy medium body with massive carbonation, almost prickly. pine and bitter resin combined with hop oils, acids, and some sharp carbonic bite make this a very bitter, almost tannicly clenching finish. pretty intense, but still refreshing, interesting, and drinkable.

Bottle... Pours hazy and golden with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is pink grapefruit. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is very bitter with only a rumor of acidity. Lengthy, bitter finish.

Thanks to jgd0608 for the bottle! A dark orange color with faint white head. A very potent hop aroma. Maybe the hopka damaged my palate, but I smell smell the same delicious soapy, resin character that I got from that. Just enough malt to make it palatable and then all hops on the body. Very bitter!

tomthompson89 (1934) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2009
pours nice orange color with big white foam, nose is citrus and some pine with a little sweet malts in the background flavor is a big wallop of hops up front, in the middle and on the finish... nice IPA some malt in the back balancing but this is all about the dance of the hops.

Light light unclear medium orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, light caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, grapefruit, orange - citrus peel. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090913]

Poured thick with an aroma contained citrus and a wonderful mixtures of hops that screams out of the glass. A super dry and crisp taste both in the mouth and the throat. Although slightly one-dimensional, I completely agree with the commercial description that this is a ’A complex malt and hop theme park in your mouth’. Cheers.
