Poured from a bottle into a tulip.

A - Fantastic looking orange-yellow hues in this one. Looks a bit darker than usual for an APA.

S - Very floral and citrusy on the nose. Mild breadiness, but overall a pretty complex and inviting beer.

T - Superb hop flavor! Citrus hits your tongue right away before giving way to a mild lingering bitterness that really keeps you sipping. Very refreshing!

M - Near perfect carbonation also balanced extremely well with the hops and malt. Well done.

O - Odell has never ceased to impress me, and St Lupulin is no exception. This is currently my favorite APA and holds a candle to their phenomenal IPA, believe it or not!

Poured from tap into pint at Euclid in Denver. Nice copper color with small lacing. Sweet citrus hop aroma. Taste is a sweet citrus and candy hop with a nice dose of malt. Its a bit over malty but still nice. Solid flavorful pale ale. Just a bit heavy...

Serving type: on-tap

Golden yellow body, thick, sticky, white head. Melon and pine hop aroma interweaves with sweetbread malt notes. Surprisingly light and refreshing taste overall; soft malt notes with a correspondingly mild but prominent hop bitterness throughout. Soft, pleasing mouthfeel; medium-light; with a fairly dry finish.

A very pleasant beer to knock back while my dog and I wait for the oven to heat up for our pizza supper (Rocket also likes the taste of this beer – well, just about any beer I offer him...). All the same, a nice summer solstice brew to knock back, especially as Colorado smokes and burns, but year-round, too (based on numerous previous purchases of this beer).

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Poured a clear golden color with a strong white head that held a fine foam cap with a bubbly lace. This beer has a perfect appearance if done with a correct pour.

Smell: Sweet, citrus hops throughout, but just to the right degree. A touch of floral, perhaps herbal aromas peer through too.

Taste: The beginning starts subtle and sweet with an herbal tinge along with presence of citrus hops; the middle carries the hops, but plateaus them with such brilliance which holds the flavor and bitterness to a perfection; the end just barely sweetens the flavor from the tone of the hops. A perfect parabola of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, perfect carbonation, silky.

Overall: When this brew hit seasonally, I was astonished by the artwork. When I tried it, I was astonished by the brew itself. Perfect in every sense; taste, smell, look, feel, ABV... everything. It's on my top for Odell and beers in general. A perfect extra pale ale/APA.

Cheers.
