Game Day Beer Review: Short's Brewing Co. Huma-Lupa-Licious India Pale Ale
(6.90% ABV). Served on draft, Huma-Lupa-Licious pours a golden orange caramel color with virtually no head. It smells of mild hops and apples. Huma-Lupa begins with toasty orange citrus (I'm getting more orange than grapefruit) and pine needle flavors, and ends with a hoppy bitterness that lingers nicely on the tongue.
It's refreshing. I don't normally love this style of beer -- I know, I know, that's practically sacrilege for an American craft beer drinker, but it's true -- but this is one IPA I could drink again and again. I'm going with an A-.
