Draft @ carlyle. Pours a hazy dark orange with about 2 fingers of white head. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is medium bitter. Citrus and pine. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, pretty good. I would gladly drink this again. monkeychugg55 (1093) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Orange with a small white head. The aroma has a mix of citrusy hops and strong caramel malt. The flavor had piney, citrus with slightly more malt than hop flavor. Moderate bitterness, and caramel on the finish.

Draft at the brewpub as Hopulus Lupulus. Awesome thick yeasty appearance, thick murky orange brown. Solid IPA, thick and malty, with some orange citrus hop balance. Very smooth, lots of thick yeast, malt tones. Hits the spot. jcwattsrugger (12427) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2010

(Draught, labeled as Humulus Lupulus) Pours a cloudy amber body with a small bubbly off-white head. Aroma of earth, florals, grass, pine, and citrus. Flavor of hops (citrus, pine, earth, grass), biscuit, and caramel malt with a bitter finish. beastiefan2k (4007) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Tap @ the brewpub. Color is a thick, murky, dirty, golden. The head is thick and soapy and leaves a similar thick and soapy lacing. Cannot see through the beer but it looks dirty rather than pretty. Aroma, all hops: bitter and tropical fruits with an airy bitterness to it. In the flavor the bitterness is subdued by a thick maltiness. Fortunately, the maltiness isn’t a caramel sweetness (which I dislike) but just a thick unsweetened maltiness. Muffled fruit juice and tropical fruit hops emerge in the flavor as well. it is ok.

Humulus Lupulus came an amber/red color with some cloudiness to it with a one inch thick off-white head that left great lacing. Aroma is a strong mixture of citrus, pine and floral hops with a light caramel malt aroma in the tail of the inhalation. Hops hits you right in the mouth, first citrus then moving into a grassy/piney middle and ends with a somewhat sweet malt ending. The feeling of the beer is a bit watery at the end like its missing something in the body. Overall a great beer if your in the mood for something bitter and melds well with its malt flavor.
