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.

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!

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.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - NOV 1, 2009
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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle from Eastman Party Store in Midland MI. Pours orange amber with dissipating ivory head and soda like carbonation. Floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Malt profile is a melding of toffee, caramel, and toasty malts, but the hops just bombard your palate, in a good way. Bitterness is a puckering grapefruit rind, orange, and grassy bitterness. Long dry bitter piney finish that seems to cling on the palate forever. A hop bomb for sure, and unbalanced as hell, but I sort of liked it.

beerbill (3567) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with mibirder. Pours a mostly clear gold with a thin linen white head. The aroma is malt along with some musty orange. The flavor begins with malt up front followed by pine bitterness that lingers for several seconds beyond the swallow. Dry finish. The bitterness is a little over the top for me while lacking a bit in flavor.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Bottle. Big sweetness with candied orange and a minor musky pine note. Cloudy pour, gold with a very thin white head and lots of carbonation. Good balanced flavor with a strong bitter side. Opens sweet with interlaced firm bitterness into a slightly harsh finish. Good texture with an astringent finish.
