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.

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.

jeremyh70 (1061) - Missouri, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Pours a hazy honey orange with an off-white head that settles to a small cap. Aroma is of solid biscuit-like malt, pineapple, citrus zest and a floral character. Taste is of citrus zest hops up front with a nice malt flavor on the finish. There are also some tropical fruit flavors that show up in the taste. Mild hop bitterness lingers on the palate after each sip. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Very balanced IPA.

LinusStick (3234) - 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 (1952) - 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.

Can. Pours slightly hazy orange gold with nice white head. Nose and taste is tropical fruit and rye bread. Very bitter. Tastes like a DIPA.
