COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A tropical thunderstorm of Northwest hops against a sky of clean, dry malt. Crisp yet eminently satisfying for the extreme hop lover, Humulo Nimbus has a balance that brings it all together into one seriously quaffable Double IPA

KansaiBeerLvrs (1978) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2014
Sample at the Hanshin Seed Event. A clear amber pour, fantastic hop aroma herbal & fruity with solid caramel malt backbone. Very bitter, green hoppy goodness, dry finish plus some sweetness from the malts. Good.

KyotoLefty (6357) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 9, 2014
Tap at Q-Brick. Dark amber-orange. Butterscotch, toffee in the nose. Heavy and sweet, with stone fruits, butterscotch. Not what I want in a W-IPA. Too sweet and syrupy.

maekchu (2097) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 9, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 Tap at Qbrick. Balanced caramel and deep hoppy nose. Dark copper/amber color. Rather sweet initial, with a rush of overripe dates and caramel thickness. Some solid citrus. Sweetens up again in the finish. Nice enough. Hitting well within its weight class. But overall a bit too sweet, even edging on cloying.

Reimer96 (1201) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of caramel, tropical fruits, mango, guava and melon. Taste is caramel, tropical fruits, mango, cantaloupe and sweet malty finish that goes semi dry with a well balanced bitterness. Very well balanced double and never seems as big as it’s abv.

Blom (831) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
Heavy double IPA with a huge dose of bitterness, The alcohol is claearly present and the hops dominate everything. Not for the faint of heart.

Lagerboy (1217) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Bomber. Clouded orange brown, fading off-white foam. Nectarous tropical fruity aroma. More aggressively hopped fruity taste, mostly grapefruit and citrus, well balanced with not too sweet C-malt, a bit boozy. Softer than average carbonation, medium bodied. Delicious stuff. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
