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.

Lovely deep golden colour and foamy white head. Aroma is citrus and spice, coriander, cumin. Taste is overwhelmingly orange rind but not unpleasant. Strong hop flavour too, like Fuggles or similar, which lingers into the finish. Clean and crisp. It’s a little thin and perhaps lacking in complexity but a decent beer.

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.

Brandon1989 (400) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color with a medium frothy white head. The aroma is hop heavy with some tropical fruits as well. You also pick up some hop oil in the aroma as well. The taste is sweeter tropical fruits up front and some breadiness but then you pick up the hops and quite a bit of bitterness but not overwhelming. The finish is quite nice with this beer.

I am very impressed as I don’t typically go for pale or extra pale ales much at all! Very rich!! Excellent body, great hop flavor that isn’t too forward or sour. Wonderful job making this one, O’Dell!

Bottle at Smokehouse in London. Hazy amber pour with lasting lacing. Aroma is grassy fresh hops - yum. Taste is similar - smoother than expected. Fresh delicious hops flavor. Bit of maltiness. Very good hoppy pale ale with balanced flavor. Would definitely get again.
