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.

A - Hazy gold with about a finger of creamy head that fades into a film on the top with a ring around the edge. S - Sweet mother of hoppy. A twinge of citrus. T - Much like the smell. Mostly hops with a bit of citrus. A little grassy. Bitterness throughout that lingers. Just fantastic. M - Not overly carbonated. Very smooth. D - Oh yeah. I wish this was more available where I live. This could definitely be an all summer long beer.

Cloudy amber beer. Tidy white head. Softish palate. semi dry. Fresh hop. Semi rich marmalade orange and grapefruit. Creamy malt. Semi dry finishwith mild hop bitterness. A nice civilsed IPA - hugely drinkable.

uncapped, all you can smell is lots and lots of cascade hops. and then more cascade hops. very flowery, grapefruity, slightly astringent up front, evolving to more bitterness on the back. if you’ve ever eaten a hop pellet, you’d know what to expect. I know the descrip says there is a complex malt bill, but I’m not tasting it. good mouthfeel, probably some carapils in there, but for the most part I’m getting light caramel and untoasted malted barley. personally, a beer with this much hop action needs to be a tad darker with more residual complex sugars to round out the finish. as it sits, this brew tends to pucker the cheeks towards the end of the mid palate.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 8, 2010
In the bottle from a shop in MI. Hazy gold in color with a medium white head. Aroma is more on the perfume/old gym sock essence and not citrus/pine. Flavor has a nice, but not great hop bitterness. Sort of a floor cleaner chemical pine taste. Yes, I know, one should not drink floor cleaner.

Bottle from Secret Santa. Pours hazy orangish color with off white head. Aromas of grapefruit, citrus and some maltiness. I’m getting more flavor from the bittering hops than anything else. Some grapefruit and grassy hops, caramel and a bit of astringency. Medium body with average carbonation.

Bottle: my first bottle of Shorts, pours dark amber with a frothy white head, strong hoppy, grassy aroma, hoppy taste with a strong malt backbone, very dry hoppy aftertaste, a nice IPA

Onslow (1318) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Copper amber pour from a 12 oz bottle. Medium white head. Fine aroma of conifer, citrus, and aromatic hops. Satisfying palat with no skimping on the maltiness. Favor is nicely balanced between maltiness and coniferous hops. Not too light in the body an dnot doing the "hops for the sake of hops" thing. A sold, well balanced, full bodied IPA.

slayer02348 (103) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2009
A pretty average IPA, pours a bit dark with a white head. Smells hoppy. A very average IPA in all aspects, the bottle claims it is a ’theme park in your mouth’ and I’m not so sure about that.

Hazed orange, foamy white head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit and a good balance of dank and floral. Very resinous taste, bitter dry finish.

edward_violet (63) - Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2009
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.
