COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mystic legend echoes in our brewhouse - that of St. Lupulin the archetypal hophead. He devoted endless summers to endless rows of hops, tending to the flowers and the beloved resin within - lupulin. Extraordinary oils in this yellow resin provide this dry-hopped extra pale ale with an undeniably pleasing floral aroma and clean, crisp finish. One sip of this seasonal summer ale and you, too, will believe.

It’s still fresh, with a best before date on the 12 oz. bottle. Familiar with Odell brews, I am very happy to have found this one! Nice blue smoke, it pours clear with moderate carbonation. If poured right,this APA will leave a thick, two finger, creamy head. It smells like an IPA. In fact, it reminds me of excellent IPAs. It has moderate yeast scent, but the citrus, grapefruit and lemon zest is dominate. It also carries a decent amount of pine in the aroma. It smells fresh and refreshing! It has a hop-forward taste, with the citrus crushing the pale malt, bread, medium-to-mild backbone. It is a smooth crisp swallow, and leaves a nice citrus taste all the way through to the back end. For a Pale malt, it has minimal sweetness, but does leave a nice sticky hop resin lacing on the glass. If I were blind tasting it, I’d probably consider it an IPA. It is a great beer and rises above most Pale Ales, rivaling many great IPAs in hops, floral and citrus, and dry finish. It is for sure worth a try and I do believe any hop-head would be plenty satisfied. It approaches being a perfect ale.

6 pack from Distillery Liquors best before August 15, 2014. This is a seriously good pale ale, perhaps the best in the style I have ever had. The pour is crystal clear and golden with a ring of a white head. The aroma is hoppy, but not powerful. It’s hoppy like smelling real hop cones being ground up a few yards away. There’s a wonderful bouquet of citrus and evergreen with mild, bready malts. I want to emphasize the authenticity of the hop character in this beer. The palate is medium-light and perfectly bubbly. Flavors are immaculately clean and refreshing. True, genuine, juicy hop flavors of grapefruits in a forest come out with just the perfect amount of sweetness for balance. Completely immaculate and fresh pale ale. Wonderful.

Pours deep golden yellow. Nice aroma, lots of pine and citrus. Crisp on the palate, lemon citrus with sweet pineapple coming through, hops on the finish. Great summer beer one of my favorites.

Draft - Grapefruit and pine, fresh and sweet. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Pithy and sweet grapefruit, well balanced bitterness and a light bitter finish. Nice and refreshing.

Not tons of character as a pale ale. Words words words words words. Not too bad though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good overall from Odell. More mild aroma but the flavor is very balanced. Appearance is good too.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Thanks to crajun for the trade! Pours clear dark yellow with a tall, sticky white head. Hop aroma of citrus ,light spice and resin. The flavor is lightly bitter but both the malts and hops are held off here making this a light, easy drinking session pale ale. Nothing too bold here.

Pours a golden brown with a white head. All hoppy on arms and taste. This is an excellent APA. It’s got a bit of a skunky backend but it’s all good.

On tap at the Lyric in Fort Collins. Appearance: finger white head, golden yellow color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: resin, grapefruit, floral, caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter finish, sticky texture. Taste: sweet to medium bitterness in the finish. Overall, the beer that got me into hoppy beers and a personal favorite. Not the best beer, but very good and lots of sentimental value for me.

Beer pours clear golden color with a dissipating egg white colored head. Aroma is pleasantly hoppy with nice grapefruit notes. Taste is bitter with a dry finish. Very hoppy and tasty for a pale ale.
