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.

stravale (2424) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, - FEB 13, 2013
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

Pours from bottle a nice copper with lots of fluffy head. Aroma is resiny hops. Pretty strong. Taste is a good malt hop balance. Nice nutty ish malt. Bitter doesn’t linger forever. Kind of oily mouth feel.

bartzluke (211) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 17, 2015
12 oz pour from chilled bottle into a shaker pint. Clear and golden with a moderate white head. Lots of floral citrus in both the nose and the taste. Fairly dry and distinctly crisp. Drinkable and unobtrusive. A bit too hoppy to be a session beer, though.

piscator34 (2088) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
Draft. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Quite floral on the nose, backed by lemon and orange peel. Cut grass and conifer enter the picture upon drinking, along with pale malt and more sweet citrus. Light bodied with a savory bitterness.

Not much aroma on this. Lighter in color and not cloudy. Relatively smooth start and finish. Not overly hoppy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CharlieTwoPies (31) - United Kingdom, - MAR 14, 2015
Bright gold colour with a good condition and a not too fluffy not too tight white head that stays. Aroma that jumps out first is extremely resinous and hops hops hops. There are spices I just can’t place for the life of me. There’s mango and grapefruit in abundance, tangerine and grain too. Taste is bitter fruits and a very earthy hop note. Something like very juicy, spicy, apples. But not sweet. Bitterness is sharp but kept in check with a slightly persistent odd note on the finish. A little peppery. Overall a beautiful aromatic, clean pale ale with a good hop-forward palate but enough balance to make it properly drinkable.
