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.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a white head and a hazy golden body. Aroma of pine, caramel, grain, and somewhat blandish. Taste is caramel, pine, dirt, paper and bitter. Fizzy and dry mouth. Forgettable.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2010
12 oz. bottle; pours clear, light orange with huge, foamy white head settling slowly; minor lacing; aromas of stale hops, pine, cat pee, honey and oranges; sticky mouthfeel with fresh pine cones, grassy twang and quite rough on the palate; sticky, very bitter and astringent; chemically, piney and earthy; after drinking a Two Hearted, this is actually quite awful; sticky malts, mildly chewy, almost no sweetness to smooth it out; over the top resiny pine; eh, not for me

j12601 (9286) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle from the mystery swap. Pours a clear ruby tinged amber with a medium to large dense creamy ecru head. Gorgeous sticky mango and pineapple with sweet caramel and touch of chocolate malt. Almost thick, smooth mouthfeel. Sweet malt and some earthy hop flavors. Finish is long and smooth with some grapefruit bitterness. This was quite tasty.

AtlAggie (241) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle. Golden yellow, no head. Huge hoppy nose, mostly grapefruit and other citrus, some floral hops too. Flavor is huge on the grapefruit, dominates the palate. Finishes with a lingering bitterness. Big bright and hoppy beer, but think it could use a stronger backbone to add some more dimension and balance. Good, but falls short of great.

infestaxion (22) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2010
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.

ogorir (3) - Northport, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2010 does not count
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.

smith4498 (3456) - Miami, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2010
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.
