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.

355ml bottle @ home. Ordered from Ales By Mail. Summer is over...almost winter but still have always time for good APA. Points for smell and appearance! Taste is at average level, but still good. Palate could be longer. Expiry date 6/7/13 (june).

Wow. Great floral pale ale. Golden copper pour. Floral and dry hops in nose with grass and orange peel. Sweet start with lots of bright citrus but finishes oily and bitter. A heavier mouthfeel for a pale ale but it works great with this one. Excellent.

jgb9348 (4628) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Rich light copper coloured body with a thin tan head. Aroma of very fresh hops with a distinct grassy, herbal and perfumey character throughout. Medium-bodied; Strong malt notes with a good fresh hop balance and a touch of apricot sweetness on the end. Aftertaste shows a lot of grass, some herbs, some light perfume and earth, but mostly this all revolves around a very fresh hop flavour that permeates through this beer. Overall, a very nice APA with a great hop profile and a nice balance of malt to boot - great to sample! Overall, a great APA with a nice fresh herbal and grassy kick that makes the entire beer worthwhilte. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased with my hot dog at Biker Jim’s in Denver, Colorado on 07-June-2014 for US$4,00.

On draft at Wyoming’s Rib & Chop House. The beer is clear and light golden with a thick head. The aroma offers herbal and floral notes, with grass and light pine. Medium bitterness throughout. Grassy and even tart. Some biscuit malt in support. Zesty and tangy. Pretty tasty.

UncleKorm (731) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle poured a deep golden hue w/ large foamy white head slowly diminishing to a thin lasting cap. Moderate flowery hop aromas. Initial flavor is faint sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of moderate duration. Tastes are fresh hop and hay. Medium bodied and balanced mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2014
4oz pour at Bridge in STL during RBSG. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker sheets of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Very smooth, great texture to it. Caramel malt, light spicy / toasty. Some good citrus hop to it. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Good bit of zest to it. Solid, flavorful, complex yet well balanced pale ale. Impressive, without being over-hopped. Good stuff.

Bottle: clear dark gold with a small white head. Lemony aroma with some sweet hops. Solid hop but well balanced flavor. Flavors of citrus, cereal and celery. Smooth finish leaving a light film on the tongue. Solid APA!

Beerenberger (1366) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2014
The nose is hop derived - lemon, grass, with hints of fruit. A slightly hazy golden pour with a white ring and nondescript lacing. The palate, as the nose, is hops forward. Subtitle flavors of tropical fruit, and citrus. The flavor becomes watery in the middle and then just fads from there. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, meh. Just not a lot of flavor going on here.

12oz bottle. Pours a gold color, with a decent head and good lacing. Freaking nuts aroma, so good. Taste is tasty. Palate is perfect. Get some, ’nuff said.
