Style IPA

Country – Michigan, United States

Purchased – A gift from my friend Paul

What is with the name?  According to Short’s website this beer is named after the hop flower Humulus Lupulus.  They also state that with the amount of hops in this beer it is like a punch in the face.  I say not quite but close!  Thanks for sending me home with this beer Paul!!

About the Beer – It pours a cloudy apricot colour.  The aroma is of floral and grapefruit hops with a slight bit of caramel.  The flavour has lots of malt and hops complexity.  You get some sweet malt to start as well as a nice hit of citrus.  It moves into a more biscuity malt and then it is all hops from there.  Pine, floral, and grapefruit attack the senses.  The grapefruit lasts on the palate for a while!

Would I Drink it Again? – In a heartbeat.  This is an excellent beer!  If this was brewed locally my fridge would never be without a bottle this summer!
