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.

Sampled at Schlafly’s 2010 Repeal of Prohibition Festival - Pours dark yellow/golden with a nice soapy / patchy white head. The aroma has grapefruit, soap (in good way), smooth citrus, floral hops and toasty malt hiding in the back for balance. Medium grainy dry body with underlying carbonation. The flavor starts with ultra-dry grapefruit, pinyness, earth and tree bark. The finish is dry resiny and abrasive. Very nice, but pretty harsh for the style.

I love hops. I love hoppy beers. But this is over the top. Just a lot of hops without enough malt malt to back it up. I always ask myself: would I buy a 6-back? Sadly, the answer is "no"

Amber-orange, clear. Aroma is citrus and hops, hops, hops. Taste is bitter citrus and honey. Mouthfeel slightly oily, sticky, and foamy. Very bitter finish. Nearly indistinguishable from "Two Hearted". Good.

Someone call Val Blatz, a HOP BOMB just exploded in my gut!!!! I need something to extinguish the BURN!!!!! Not bad, not great. A good IPA, but if I had this, and a Blatz in my fridge, this would sit forlornly for about 5 seconds (as I pounded the Blatz & screamed, "How about a double dose of that bitch?") and then I would drink this rotgut IPA while wishing it were a Blatz.

While visiting Michigan, found this in a Meijer grocery store. Pour is a beautiful orange amber. Nose is very grassy hops and citrus that isn’t just grapefruit. Taste, very hoppy for a single. Grassy hops accentuated with a great fruit citrus, maybe peaches, apricot, and grapefruit. Great mouth feel, like you’ve just ate some mowed hops and peaches. Highly recommend this beer or if anyone has the chance to visit the brewery. Cheers.

Courtesy Overml01. Thanks, Matthew. Pours hazy orange with rocky, off white head. Grapefruit nose with lemon and light bubblegum. Moderate, sticky bitter with citrus, lemon, grapefruit, grassy notes. Mild astringent after. Good beer.

From bottle courtesy of dpjuart. Very nice fresh grassy aroma, with lots of citrus and apricot, pine. Light sweetness but really a lot of fresh hoppiness. Hazy amber orange dark with creamy foamy off-white lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts sweet with caramel and biscuit. Big hop flavor with apricot and pine, following by grassy herbal bitter finish and huge bitter after. Nice IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 I am not a fan of this brew. It is very hoppy, but this beer doesn’t have a lot going for it (taste) other than being hoppy. Bitter and bland. Must have been a bad bottle - very good. Hoppy, apricot, nice.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle courtesy of bulldogp04. Poured a cloudy golden color with a tiny white head. Nose is heavy with resinous pine and caramel malt, lighter notes of grain and lemon zest. Full body with an oily mouth feel and good carbonation. Flavor is very earthy, big notes of pine and grass, some citrus, also a good amount of caramel and pale malt sweetness. Pretty fair amount of bitterness and lots of resin in the finish.
