Keg in Arcadia, Headingly. Golden with a thin frothy white head. Plenty of resinous hop flavour, but quite sweet with caramel undertones. Oily mouthfeel, with a touch too much carbonation as the only criticism. Good.

A pretty standard APA. Aromas and flavors are a bit on the lighter side and consist of pine, citrus and caramel malt. Medium bodied with a bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lively light orange pour; lightly dank, hop forward aroma with white peach, lilac, and light pine. Centennial concentrate.
Fruity, sticky hop oil flavor with cotton candy, mineral water, and cantaloupe. This is a familiar balance of hop-heavy and sweet, in the vein of other centennial heavy examples. Floral, bittersweet and pillowy finish.
Palate is oily and medium bodied, with crisp carbonation. This fits a mold for me. Itís a flavorful, quality hop-forward beer that coaxes as much thought out of me as any light lager.

Clear yellow orange in color... Aroma of wet resiny, citrus hops... Flavor is really dry grainy hops, lots of hop residue finish on the palate, like chewing on hops... Kinda rough, little too hoppy for me

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 When it comes to dealing with hops, Odell has some of the most capable minds in the brewing industry. With St. Lupulin, the Fort Collins brewers take hop oils and resins and extract their subtle fruit characteristics. The hazy yellow body of this pale ale is gorgeous. Head is huge and aromatic with grapefruit, pine, grass, and floral notes. Flavor is mild on bitterness but big on juiciness. Grapefruit, apricot, lemon, melon, mango, and pineapple all contribute to a dense, tropical profile. Hoppy oils and resin are palpable in the mouthfeel but the lively carbonation keeps the ale from feeling too heavy or sticky. St. Lupulin is a phenomenal example of American Pale Ale. Even though itís loaded with hops, the balanced flavor makes it approachable to just about anyone.
