10/11/2010: Huma Lupa Licious is Short’s best selling, and most reviewed beer. Love the description on the label; “A complex malt and hop theme park in your mouth.” I am assuming going into this one that its going to be pretty tasty. Never thought I would say that about IPAs in general, but I have learned to really crave a good IPA every now and again.

The nose on Huma Lupa is grapefruit hops, and a lot of pine. Not good! For those of you who have been reading for a while you know that I hate piney hope flavor. The flavor is of the sharp resiny pine type, with some citrus, and biscuity malts. Usually I can take a bit of pine, but this little bastard was the main attraction in this theme park. Mouthfeel is medium and very nicely carbonated. Overall I am sure for he style a lot of hop heads would love this, but it was just average to me because of the pine kick.

Picture of the day: A family was almost killed yesterday while making pancakes.
