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.

On tap during CBC weekend at Sheffields, Chicago. I had a pint and a half of this stuff and could have kept drinking. One of the more intensely bitter IPAs I’ve had in a while, this smelled wonderfully flowery and fresh. The dominant impressions in the mouth are the dark, dirty bitterness and a persistent citric sourness that was more like lime than grapefruit (which is what I’m accostomed to). The malts provide the perfect backdrop to the bitterness, staying subtle and never reaching a bready or sweet quality that would detract from the dryness.

Poured in the glass it is a hazey golden color with a medium head. Aroma is very floral with some pine and citrus. The taste has some bitterness up front, pretty hoppy and also some pine, resin and some citrus. Pretty good finish.

Bottle from Siciliano’s. Pours orange with a thick white head. Leaves a lot of lacing. I’m not getting much on the nose. Definite pine sol on the tongue. Finishes clean. It’s nice to have an IPA to cut through the phlegm.

A gift from Amy. Bronze, clear with nice yellowish head. Mildly sour flower in the aroma. Malt, flower, sweet toffee. Really big grapefruit bitterness in the aftertaste.

Strangebrewer (894) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
bottle. Poured hazy medium amber with a creamy off-white head. Fresh perfumery hop aroma. Full bodied, prickly dry mouthfeel with an astringent finish. Flavour is all hop, peppery, herbal, tart citrus notes. This beer delivers a punch, a nice sipper.

libertine (224) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2014
pours a hazy light amber with a thick tan head. nice soapy lacing. aroma is piney citrus hops, toasted malt, and tropical fruit. Taste starts sweet and gradually becomes resinous. Ridiculous how balanced this is. Medium body and carbonation with creamy/slick mouth fell. Finishes very dry. My favorite shorts product yet. Not a big shorts fan, but this is really good.
