Our Humulus series are always hoppy and delicious. Humulus XPA is a very drinkable pale ale, brewed with the Classic West Coast Hops, Columbus and Cascade, and then dry hopped with Simcoe, giving it an intense citrus and pine flavor and a bitter kick in the finish. At just 4.5% ABV, this beer has a surprisingly robust backbone due to the use of Vienna Malt instead of the more typical 2-row.

"Humulus Lager was a Pliny clone in lager form. This is just a straight up hop monster of a pale ale. So good. So refreshing. Hop juice is what I think of with these relatively low abv pales that showcase the hops so well."

Dogbrick (11508) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Sample at Bruery Provisions. The beer is a slightly hazy orange color with a medium off-white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, fruit and malt. Light, crisp body with a mildly bitter citrus hops character with some grassy and malty notes. The finish is lightly hoppy with a lingering bitterness left behind. Above average overall.

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Draft at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours hazy amber with a 3 finger creamy white head. Aroma is citrus/fruit/floral/resin. Very nice. Med body. Quite lush - almost like cask. Nice caramel backbone with all kinds of hop matching the aroma. Smooth. Fairly bitter. Maybe more bitter than that. Quite a tasty drink.

Tap at The Bruery. Deep floral and citrus aroma. Citrus, floral and some pine to the flavor. Light and crisp with some bread. Very refreshing.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 31, 2012
The beer is a bright orange color with a sense white head. Citrus and floral hop aromas to this. Very pungent hop aroma, maybe a little bit of green onion, decent breadiness, and tons of pine. The flavor is quite dry and crisp. Pine, citrus peel, and lots of floral hop favors. Plenty of toasted bread, a hint of pineapple, and restrained bitterness. Very drinkable.

On draught at Provisions. Pours clear copper with an eggshell head. Aroma is citrus, resin, and some fabulous tropical fruits. Taste is semi sweets with plenty of pleasant, but sharp, bitterness. Very clean beer. Good, flavorful, and sessionable.
