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.

On tap during CBC weekend at Sheffields, Chicago. I had a pint and a half of this stuff and could have kept drinking. One of the more intensely bitter IPAs I’ve had in a while, this smelled wonderfully flowery and fresh. The dominant impressions in the mouth are the dark, dirty bitterness and a persistent citric sourness that was more like lime than grapefruit (which is what I’m accostomed to). The malts provide the perfect backdrop to the bitterness, staying subtle and never reaching a bready or sweet quality that would detract from the dryness.

Decent IPA. Pours a beautiful slightly orange haze. Pungent pine on the nose, hits your mouth with citrus hop, then into a lingering grapefruity alcohol on the finish. Not bad at all my friends

Orange pour with a light head. This IPA leans toward the mellow end of the spectrum. Pretty strong, lingering bitterness on the palate. Some nugget perhaps. Fruit salad, orange peel, a little honey. Light aroma for the style.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 This is one of my favorite smelling IPA’s, the hops and citrus are so enticing and it looks good. A 12oz bottle would be perfect because the hop backwards bitterness is a bit overpowering. It’s different than other IPA’s, which is cool, but it’s a bit too odd.

pours a hazy orange gold with a medium white head. Big aroma of grapefruit citrus and sweet floral. Hop bitter from the start. full oily mouth feel. Taste some of the grapefruit coming in with a muted but definite malt presence. Long bitter linger. Right in my hophead wheelhouse. Good beer!

Bottle. Giant. Caramel, malt, hop, floral, spice and citrus candy. Some vanilla as well. Heavy heat from the bite, floral and earth hops contrast the powerful juicy nuggets. Well balanced spice and a woody finish. Great stuff.

nittanytide (278) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2016
Poured orange/gold with thin, foamy head. Floral aroma, with a hint of grass. Taste is grass, grapefruit. Lasting bitter finish.

Block (2576) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of hops. Flavor is sweet, hoppy. Not the best finish. Some lingering malts. A little alcohol.

zoucrew102 (1719) - - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle. Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with biscuity malt and pine resiny hop notes. Pours cloudy golden colored with a large, soapy off white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with biscuity malt flavors as well as grapefruity hop citrus and acidity. Finishes dry and very bitter pine resin hoppiness that coats the palate. Pretty good IPA, but very bitter on the finish.

Bot & boy do I wish I could tell the minute differences between IPA hops. All I feel is the overwhelming bitterness everytime I drink a good one. So powerful, so thick, so mouthcoating, so terribly on style. Think pine tar mixed with a combination of fruity turpentine, hand soap and then chewing on way too green bitter grapefruit rinds. Somewhat mildly volatile aroma. Probably treads into the IIPA imperial category.

Lightly cloudy orange gold, ample tan head. Strong pine resin, acerbic grapefruit, strong biscuity and honey malt backbone. Strong bitterness, not too much sweetness. Lightly oily, medium body, fair bit of carbonation. Good.
