look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Pours a light to medium golden, yellow color. Medium, 2.5 finger head that retains very well. Clarity is high, with continuous carbonation streaming to the top. Lacing is pretty good.

S- Balanced with a strong dose of hops, but not an overpowering amount. This could easily pass for an IPA. Slight pine scent to the hops, but not bitter and resin-ey like many IPA's.

T- Balanced and hop forward. Starts with moderate hops bitterness that is consistent throughout the drink. Midway through the drink, the hops let up a little bit, letting a bit of a sweeter malt peek in. The sweeter malt and bitter hops give a small, honey-like flavor to the beer. Ends with a return of hops bitterness.

M- Smooth and medium in weight. The moderate dose of hops bitterness gives the beer most of it's body. High carbonation and creamy across the tongue. Easily sessionable.

Overall, a good way to break into Odell. I though this was an IPA in the store, and despite its APA classification, this one could go either way. Looking forward to trying more offerings from Odell.

The color is a bright, clear dark yellow-gold. It's pretty brilliantly bright, actually, and between this beer and Myrcenary I'm beginning to expect it from any and all IPAs or pale ales that Odell brews. A clean, compact head sits tight at right around one finger in height and drops lacing that sticks mostly in patches.
A sturdy aroma is sweet with citrus fruits as well as some tropical with a nice, bright sort of zesty bitterness to balance. Malts are bready and let the hops lead. A little bit of rind comes in underneath with a very gently herbal edge.
The taste follows suit with citrus and tropical fruits forward but leads with an additional floral bitterness as well. It's also a touch more peppery than the nose. Malts offers a bready dryness and the rind note pulls into the finish. Overall, it's as bright as the aroma.
The crispness bites while allowing some smoothness to flow nicely in a medium body.

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...
