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.

Bottle from Tomlinsons, Inverness [140213]
Yellow orange, thin bubbly white head, some lacing
Aroma of resinous hops, floral nose, zesty citrus, touch of grass hop, light caramel fairly fruity malts, lots of aroma
Taste of citrus hops, resinous hops, nice fruity hops, some floral notes in there, good sweet pale malt background that lets the hops through, no harshness, easy going for 6.5%
Palate medium carb, medium body, little oilt. Palate fairly biting hops with a nice sweet pale malt base. Finish as main flavour, good fresh bitter hop clean finish
Overall - Come across as a very refined IPA and well balanced. Nothing over the top but just well done...great beer

weordie (573) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2016
Pours cloudy orange with a thin white head. Very little aroma to talk of, some sweet citrus. A very malty taste, in fact tons of sweet malts. Nice but very sweet.

More hoppy than delicious malty. I prefer the malty brews. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear light orange golden with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is tropical, caramel. Flavor follows. Medium body. Nice hoppiness all around, but minimal bitterness and surprisingly clean finish. Lots of character but very easy to drink. Very nice.

wlajwl (5063) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Aroma is citrus, floral and candy hearts. The flavor is citrus, fruit, candy hearts, malts and a mix of bitter and sweet in the finish. A little more sweet than expected, very balanced but just enough bitterness to remind you its an APA.

brokensail (14590) - San Leandro, California, USA - AUG 27, 2015
On tap @ Odell. Orange in color with white foam. Sweet bready malts and orange. A little bit of floral and grassy hops. Some lemony hops and maybe a bit of tea. Sort of bitter but itís kind of on the sweet side, particularly for me. Good citrus hop flavors to it and some leafy hops. Pretty decent beer, but not amazing.

Frank (3721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2015
This is orange in color w/o much head to speak of. Itís got a pretty nice hop character to it--sweet citrus w/ a savory herbal element. Itís not too sweet w/ a good bitter bite and medium carbonation. This isnít really exceptional but it is a rather good beer when you get right down to it.
