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.

tsetlock (66) - Hartland Twp, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Draft. Pours a hazy light amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma was a burst of fresh citrusy hops, grapefruit, pine, and some sweet malt. The flavor is more fresh citrus hops, grapefruit, moderately sweet malt, herbal, pine, heavy dry bitter finish. The bitterness lingers for a while. Medium bodied, rough at the start, but very enjoyable.

Thechasm442 (636) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2016
3 month old bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with an average white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is citrus and must. Orange and grapefruit are strong as well as bits of pine. Taste is dank hops, lots of pine, and citrus fruit. Bread and caramel as well. Thick for the style and no visible alcohol. Good beer.

TattooJack (440) - Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Poured from the bottle of a six pack, has a gritty sandy texture, some dry and sticky, getting some fresh cut grass, black pepper, it almost seems watery which is hard to believe at 7.7% but that’s what I’m getting.

rondphoto (3618) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 12, 2016
bottle @ Whitey’s / Lawrenceburg IN --- Clear medium/light amber with a bubbly two=finger white head, thin bands of lace. Taste is malt that is joined by carbonation and smooth, but strong, citrus hops on the swallow. Malt and hops share a long finish.

jason (1819) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of dank hops. Look of lightly cloudy orange with nice head. Flavor is citrus, grass dank hops and a touch of sweetness and balanced bitterness.

jsporrer (450) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a hazy golden Amber with a huge thick white head. Medium carbonation and plenty of lacing. Strong aroma of sweet candy corn and malts. Medium body. Taste starts out very bitter then gets extremely bitter leaving an unpleasant harsh citrus rind aftertaste in the back of the mouth. I didn't like this at all! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (2028) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2016
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 4-24-16. Pours a clear brass with a large amount of cream-colored head. Many small bubbles rising. Produces good lacing. I like the bubbles, foam, and lacing, but otherwise a boring appearance. Some yeast haze and thicker, smoother head in the final pour elevates the appearance. Scents of lemon and almost mint. A basil herbality to the smell. Dry taste with a dry, bitter finish. Hoppiness is clearly present and in fact dominant yet at the same time subdued. I wonder if I have an older bottle, although it can’t be too old. Not a lot of complexity in the hops; mostly just dryness/bitterness. I like a classic, bitter IPA, but it’s hard for me to give one a particularly high score. A malty sweetness does develop upon multiple sips. Soft in the palate. Medium body. Filling. Unremarkable palate effects. Overall, an okay IPA and beer but nothing special.

OsuStu (194) - - APR 21, 2016
12 oz bottle. Hazy gold color with a thin white head, fair lacing. Appearance of some suspended solids. Aroma cut grass, grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruit. Initial flavor is a hop bomb which lingers on the tongue, pine and bitter greens. But, light fruity malts do follow. Orange, banana, apricot. Medium body. Decent but not very well balanced.

andyhwcinc (1782) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2016
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after a nice run. Appearance is a cloudy amber gold with a small white head. Aroma is rich in dirty hops, smells 'dank'. Taste is pretty good, more hoppy than other IPA's out there. Good stuff.

Maddog (502) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2016
Sweet, malty and balanced. Earthy, some breadiness, piney some bitterness at the finish. A solid IPA in the Midwestern style.

On tap at Hopcat. Unsurprisingly haven't had this. Solid IPA. Very grassy nose. Drinkable.
