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.

Sampled draft at HopCat (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a delicate hazy gold, moderate white head that laces very well with. Aromas are straight american hop, citrusy grapefruit and lemon, with touches of orange, a true melange, with decent bitterness, pale malts with a touch of heavier caramel, faint pine and resin. Initial is fruity, grapefruit and lemon balance more pale malts as the hops are the focus of this brew. Tropical fruits come in, as the bitterness is moderate, with refreshing quality, touch soapy on the finish, with fruity bitterness. A very nice IPA. Cheers!

Tap at Red Ox, Rochester, Mi. Pours clear golden color, frothy white head. Aroma is pine, lemon, orange, biscuit malt. Flavor is pine, orange peel. Pretty bitter finish. A lot of astringency hits hard. Not too complex but a solid beer. Also a little sweetness early on but it’s mild. Overall solid.

Bottle. This is a sneaky hop bomb. Delicious and grassy with plenty of extra oomph to go around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
