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.

Pours a completely hazed peach color with a big frothy off white head, nice lacing. Wet citrus on the nose as well as some floral notes. Very tasty IPA for being almost 18 months old.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 Bottle thanks to alexsdad06. Pours a clear orange with a small thick white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel malt, and tropical fruits. Flavor of bitter grapefruit, caramel malt, bitter hop resins. Decent IPA on the bitter side; it was nothing special. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

Update 6/29/10: On tap at Shorts. Pours a clear amber-orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops, hop oils, and sweet caramel malt. Flavor of bitter hops, citrus, acetone?, and caramel malt. Again, just decent for me although just a touch better on tap. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]

Update 5/19/16: Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, lots of caramel malt, earthy hops. Flavor is quite malty with grassy hops, hop oils, and citrus. Tasty, malty IPA, more like a IIPA. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Drake (11913) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2010
12 ounce bottle brought back to me from Michigan from a friend. Thanks Eric! Pours a hazy medium amber color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Nice fresh hop aroma with resin, citrus and herbal notes along with a nice malty backbone. The taste is very bitter earthy, herbal hops with a bit of a citrus caramel finish. Medium bodied. Quite good.

nimbleprop (7560) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 19, 2010
12oz bottle scored via trade with HopBurp. Pours a hazy, translucent, orange amber with a frothy, rocky, slightly off white head. Aroma of sticky hops, grapefruit, pine, lemons, flowers. Flavor is very bitter, grapefruit, pine, lemon rind, a little bit of crackery malts, a little bit of light, cookie dough sweetness. Finish is very bitter, like a orange rind. For the amount of hops in this, they should have just increased the malt bill and made a double IPA. It’s a little TOO bitter for just a regular IPA. Almost too astringent and over bearing.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Bottle from an anonymous benefactor via a trade. Pours copper with 2-finger uniform off-white head. Nose is great, caramel malt, some orange marmalade, resiny hops, perfumy spices. Tastes rich, very resiny hoppy, very citric, with a solid malt bill and some finishing astringency. My cherry popper from Short’s, and a very impressive one indeed.

12 ounce bottle shared by Tim- thanks man for the Shorts hook up! Pours a clear apricot color with a large white head. A huge aggressive nose, pure vine, loads of fresh citrus hops. The flavor is similar; a rich fresh flavor, fresh hops, light bitterness, some juice, herbal. Nice IPA.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2010
12-oz bottle, thanks to RAYBOY01: This poured a golden amber body with a substantial eggshell head. The aroma was strong with the PNW hops - grapefruit zest and pine. The taste had a strng enough caramel backbone to support the bitterness and hoppy flavors. The finish was dry with a prolonged bitterness. Very nice.

(12oz bottle via BA gratefulbeerhead) amber orange pour, nice oily bubbles, nose of honey, grapefruit, alcohol and other citrus. Taste of alcohol, hairspray, grapefruit oil (very bitter), and bready notes as well. Medium thick body that’s oily slick and finishes quite spicy. Bad aftertaste to me.
