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.

I shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617. Overall pretty decent. It poured a translucent amber orange color with a thin white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with hints of citrus, but not orange, maybe more on the lemon side. Taste is VERY hoppy, maybe even a bit too much for me. It is certainly a good beer, something I would enjoy drinking with a meal, but not something I would have more than one at a time of. A nice brew for MI.

Bottle from secret santa. Poured cloudy orange with a huge white head. Aroma piney earthy hops, toasted malt. Taste is bitter hop citrus & pine, with some sweet malt. Finish is very bitter. Mouth is medium bodied, with a fair amount of carbonation. Overall, a decent east coast IPA.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 24, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a bright orange color with a very small white head. Nose is fresh piney hops and some light sweetness and biscuits. Palate is full and tingly. Flavors of piney, resiny hops and a light biscuity malt.

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Bottle. Deep golden body, slightly hazy. Bubbly white head mostly diminishing. Enticing aroma with lots of pine and resin. Hints of orange peel, ripe oranges, grapefruit skin. The flavor is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and heavily bitter with moderate acidity. Long, bitter aftertaste. Dry. Floral hops jump out in the finish. Medium body, sticky texture and lively carbonation. This IPA is all about bittering hops. The backbone could use more sweetness to balance the hops. The bitterness pretty much wipes out any subtlely a "complex malt bill" could possibly offer. Solid nonetheless especially if you love hop assertive IPAs.

Bottle at Atlas Bistro courtesy of psprings. Pours a hazy copper color with a creamy off-white head. Smells of hops and mild citrus zest. Tastes of further hops, chewy malt, and pine. Seemed oxidized, unfortunately, after only two months in the bottle. Look forward to possibly having this on tap.

Golden amber in the glass. Hops are greatly showcased in both aroma and palate

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Another fantastic Michigan IPA. Incredibly bitter in the aftertaste, with a bit of grassiness. Very little citrus or grapefruit. Almost a resiny finish. I could drink this all day. I HAVE actually.

Bottle from stfun.. Nice red/orange color, small head. Bitter aroma of hops. Taste is a little out of balance... Just a bitter up front beer. Chemical bitterness towards the end.. Grapefruit and piney hops... Medium texture.. Overall an OK beer....

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2009

Source:Sample from a 12 oz bottle at a tasting in Nashville.
Appearance:Hazy orange/gold pour with a one finger off white head.
Aroma:Orange and lemon peels with notes of grapefruit.
Flavor:Grapefruit and orange peel. Very little malt balance here.
Palate:Medium body with solid carbonation.
Overall:This was a little disappointing. A little bit of malt balance would have gone a long way here.

valpoaj (623) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Pours a hazy orange with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is almost all hops...a slight hint of malt, but fruity and piney hops abound. Flavor is again, all hops, and not much to offset the hops. Citrus (grapefruit and orange) hops move to the forefront, with a good dose of forest in here as well...and a very bitter palate start to finish. Moderate body; heavily carbonated. Pretty good IPA, though I’m not picking up the malt profile others seem to note...
