COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle thanks to Bigmmartin. Pours a goldish-brown with a thin white head, great lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, with a solid malt backbone. Notes of pine, citrus, and bread stand out. The palate is much lighter than I expected. Flavor brings out an earthy flavor. After taste leaves a nice bitter bite.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6615) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy vibrant copper color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter, pine, fruity, rough and earthy. The flavor was bitter, floral , herbal, earthy and rough. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.

LinusStick (3223) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Delicious and complex IPA. Aroma was good. A perfect mix of sweet malt and dank heavy hops. Pour was just the way I love an IPA. A light hazy gold with a one finger white head. Taste was nice. I was worried at first sip because the malt was heavy and sweet but no worry. Mid sip and through the swallow it was all bitter and dank hops. Grapefruit and a little pine. Nice bitter finish. None of that dumb mango or tropical fruit crap. Nice carbonation round this beer out

Panzuriel (1911) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Appearance: Medium to darker amber. Hazy. Finger of white foam. Laces nicely Nose: citrus, pine and grass. Honey sweetness as well. Taste: bigger citrus and pine hops in the front that mellow towards the end. Decent back of the sip bitters. Touch of restrained honey caramel sweetness throughout. Body: medium and sharp on the first sip. Parting thoughts: A very solid IPA. Nicely constructed.

Tap at Pyramid Scheme. Almost clear dark golden with off white head with lots of lacing. Mango, quite some caramel, dank weedy hops, a bit of cardboard, green leaves and grassy. Medium sweet and bit over medium bitter. A bit over medium bodied with over medium carbonation.

12 ounce bottle, last of a six-pack from Woodmans in Janesville, WI. Served from a Fitgers pint glass just above fridge temperature. I like IPAS cold, so sue me! A beautiful pour, with a creamy, lasting meringue head atop a translucent, golden body...aroma is sweet, sticky and pungent, the several hop varieties creating overall a musky profile that carries most of the typical IPA smells at once - citrus, resin, grasses, dry herbs, but overall dominated by a sweet (almost sickly-sweet) honey-wet bark character...on the tongue, sweetness hits first but is overwhelmed by a strong deep bitterness at midpalate, drying out considerably into a long, tingly finish. Body is very full, almost too full and verging on syrupy (this is why it’s best quite cold) but that lingering dry, slightly woody finish very much saves it. On the whole, one of my favorite current Midwestern IPAs, and it’s ease of drinking and lack of fuesal alcohol presence belies it’s strength, just as it should be for a beer like this.
