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.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Appearance: hazy sunrise orange burst body with a 1 finger white crown. Not much retention but some swirls of lacing. Smell: Loads of bitter floral hops along with some citrus hops but they smell more like mango to me than grapefruit or orange. Taste: Lots of bitter hops, a touch of tropical fruit, and a tiny dash of sweet malt. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but a bit chewy. Acceptable level of carbonation. Drinkability: Not bad but it would have got higher marks if the hops weren’t so bitter. Don’t get me wrong, bitterness is something I LOVE but it does take away from the "drinkability" factor. UPDATE: I found that like most IPA’s, the flavor profile of this brew shifts considerably as it ages. As expected, the hop bitterness recedes and the sweet malt heightens.

A de-licious 12oz from my brother-in-law in Michigan. Yeah, I should probably get him a hooker for his upcoming visit to mormonland. The legs don’t stay for long, but who cares?! She puts out! Immaculate smell, color and consistency. Feels like I got kicked in the dick by a giant reefer-smelling hop. Just an all-around great super-hopped IPA. You won’t be sorry you swallowed. Yeah, I said that.

thetomG (246) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 The bitterness is strong in this one... Reviewing as I sip - pours a beautiful dark & hazy golden color with a small amount of head that dissipates quickly leaving some nice white lacing around the glass. The aroma is somewhat mild but has some elements of pine & citrus. The flavor is a bitter hop bomb that explodes in your mouth instantly and really dominates the flavor palette. At first it kind of turned me off, but with each sip I’m enjoying it more and more. If your a lover of super bitter hoppy beers this one is for you. Not my ideal IPA, but I would definitely drink it again.

wedgie9 (2664) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Tasted from 12oz bottle. Pours bright orange with a frothy white head. Nice hoppy pine resin aroma with some cereal malt. As the beer warms, some fruiteness becomes apparent. On the front of the palate, the flavor shows off the caramel and cereal malts, but on the middle and back of the palate, this beer belongs to the hops. The hops flavor begins fruity but ends with grapefruit bitterness as expected. The body fairly light with a somewhat thin texture. The carbonation is average, and the finish is super bitter and super long. This is a good IPA, but slightly out of balance.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2010
"Big hoppy beer! Burnished copper in color, great carbonation, fluffy head and blanketing lacing. Lemon, orange, grapefruit, honey and ceral scents are exceptionally pleasant. Big and malty with a huge hop presence, bitter aftertaste and a faint sweetness. Sticky citrus hops that are very fresh and floral. Note of honey, caramel and glazed doughnuts."

ElGaucho (2394) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Welle. Aroma nondescript. Nice murky, orange body with lovely off white sheet lace. Best served a little warmer to let the flavors out. Soft, but substantial hop profile. Session quality flavor but a little strong for that. A very nice brew.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle. Cloudy copper, fluffy head. Aroma is all grapefruit. Taste is more grapefruit bitterness. Slightly harsh finish. One-dimensional. Needs some additional hop complexity- pine or floral to balance the citrus.

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2010
Pretty average IPA. Gold orange pour. Ok head,medium lacing. Aroma of citrus and mild pine hop. Pretty much tastes how it smells with some mild malt to balance it. First few sips the finish was a little too dry. Got better after a few minutes. Easy to drink but nothing mind blowing.

Strykzone (6946) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
Sample at Schlafly Repeal. A fine beer and an excellent example of the Americanized style. Some big biting hops are tart citrus. Almost cloying but still "in the zone." Caramel, if there, is not noticed. A hopheads delight.

Golden yellow pour with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is soft piney hops. Nice mellow flavor. Lacing shown after the first sip. Piney hops were not overbearing. Quite nice.
