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. 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.

Bottle pours orange color with off white head. Aroma is spicy hop pine and citrus. Tingly mouthfeel. Flavor is strong pine, hop resin, grapefruit, and finishes with a brutal bitter punch in the tongue. This was a very bitter brew and is very aggressive. I like it!

12 oz bottle courtesy of daknole. Thanks a million. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium white head that has fair retention and fair lacing. The aroma is soft and floral with some jasmie, citrus and pine. The flavor is biter hops forward with earthy pine, sweet fruits and grapefruit.The finish is long and harshly biter. The palate is light and malty. Overall: A fair IPA but not top tier.

12oz bottle from riversideak, thanks man. Nose is a bit malty with earthy hints and nice hop backing. The hop note though are more on the dry bitter side than the sticky citrus side. Dry hop bitterness up front then into some sweet bread with slight peach flavor and then back into sharp bittering dry finish. A bit astringent but not to a fault. Nice stuff with no shortage of hops...thanks Alex!

12 oz bottle. Hazy yellow brown with a white cap leaving lacy sheets. Nose is mandarin orange and pink grapefruit. Juicy medium light with sharp cleansing carb. Taste is orange, grapefruit and lemon zest with hints of strawberry. Dry finish with pine needles, pith and a spicy bite. Hops stand out and even though malts are not so prominent still maintains good balance. Quite good.

BPW #88 Served from a 12 oz bottle that I picked up on the trip through M!ch!g@n. Appearance is a clear golden brown with a thin white head. Aromas are very malty and hoppy. Flavors follow but lean a little too much towards extract influenced. Flavors worsen with some stale malts and burn popcorn. Not for me or an old bottle.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with thin off-white head. The aroma is hoppy and fruity - especially peaches. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, fruit, peaches, and grapefruity hops, leading to a bitter finish. Papsoe for sharing.
