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.

From Michigan beer trip. Fantastic floral aroma and a balanced finish. Too bad I can’t get it at home.

Ktwse (4875) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2017
Pours hazy golden with low white head. Aroma of pine, tropical fruit, citrus. Taste is super pine bitter, light fruit notes. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

ganache (5896) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Bottle. Nose grapefruit and light grass, dough; pour an opaque orange-golden with a large and dense beige head. Taste strongly bitter but not extreme, clean and not too rubbery, rather dry, not tart, getting subtle orange peel and rind, light grapefruit, strong dough, very strong pine, some spice and earth. Full body but not fat, smooth and just crisp enough. Strong caramel dull and a little flabby. A little heavy for this hot day, well thought-out, just doesn’t have the brightness it needs.

Exceptional IPA on draft at Yard House in King of Prussia. This delicious beer poured a golden color with a thick white head. The hops were crisp, bitter, spicy and dry. The mouthfeel and body of flavors were outstanding. There was a bready backbone that balanced the beer really nicely. The finish was delicious. I could drink this one all day!

dcmchew (104) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - MAY 31, 2017
Pours misty, deep orange. Full finger white cap, recedes slowly and leaves a nice, dense lacing. Nice fresh leafy hops on the aroma, some caramel-biscuity malts, even faint chocolate (?!), grapefruit, faint apricot, pine resin. Taste has candied grapefruit peel, some orange pulp, with a nice gulp of caramel maltiness in the middle, and then just truckloads of deep resiny hops, packing a really solid bitterness and quite some earthiness, too. Faint pineapple. Hints of chewing tobacco, spicy weed, kiwi seed. Aftertaste has a lot of lingering bitter hops, but its not unpleasant. Each new sip brings back a nice citrusy juiciness. Mild, smooth body, carbonation prickles just for a bit. A solid, albeit pretty straight-forward resiny IPA. A nice break from oniony-tropical hop juices.

jbruner (4734) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of resinous piney citrus hops over a mild caramel and biscuit malt base. Taste has some floral aspects on top of the pine and citrus, but more malt balanced and slightly oxidized. Moderate to heavy bitterness, dry finish, not bad.

Lowe1983 (1592) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2017
Pours a cloudy, amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is floral hops with caramel malts and a hint of alcohol. Flavor had some toastyness along with the floral hops and caramel malts.

3.9
ciocanelu (2523) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 18, 2017
Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma has some toasted malt and classic, resiny hops. Some bittersweet orange peel in the back. Taste starts bitter up-front with nice orange peel flavor, pine resin and earthy hops. Bitterness is quite intense but doesn’t really feel harsh. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. A classic style of IPA but executed really well.
