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 12fl.oz (whatever that means, guess about 33 cc). Pours a cloudy orange with a minimal off-white head. Leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is citrus but more to the warm citrus aroma than a fresh aroma. If this makes sense, quite nice though. Maybe more to the malty side with overtones of bread. taste is complex hoppy with lots of citrus (again) and floral tones with a clear bitter finish that lingers. Medium body with a light carbonation. liked this beer

One of the beers that got me into the craft scene. Hazy yellow pour white head. Resin citrus aroma. Lots of citrus and sticks taste nice malt body holding it all together. Moderate body and carbonation.

tectactoe (1526) - Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Tap: One of my first craft beer loves. Golden color, foamy white head perched on top. Huge hop resin & pine aroma with underpinning florals & herbaceous notes. Mild reminders of bitter citrus peels & rinds. Taste is exquisitely bitter, biting floral & pine with a counterpoint of grapefruit zest & citric undertones. Resin plays big in the aftertaste with a sustaining bitterness. Not much malt to speak of, but that’s what American IPAs are all about... Hope praise. Shorts’ flagship IPA is coincidentally one of their best.

nsquishee (594) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle via my buddy Jason. Pours a clear, light orange color with a creamy off white head. Aroma of light tangerine and hops. Very smooth bitterness is backed by a sweet maltiness. Flavors of fruity hops, lemon/orange citrus, grass, and a hint black pepper on the finish. Very delicious.
