Odell's St. Lupulin is a very hoppy, but more fruit-flavored than bitter, American pale ale, which borders the line into IPA territory, if not crossing it. The fruit flavors are plentiful, and the peach, tangerine, grapefruit, orange, and cantaloupe come together with the pale malt base for an exceptionally enjoyable, easily drinkable beer. One I'll miss not being able to enjoy during the summer.

Pours a 2-3cm tall, off-white head with good retention, eventually declining to leave copious clumps of lacing. Body is golden orange-brown in color, hazy, with light brining out bright yellows and oranges. Carbonation is visible and rather active.

Aroma is mild of tangerines, peach, and slight lemon, all on top of a lightly sweet malt base. Could be bolder with aroma.

Tasting opens sweet, pale malts and vague citrus fruit flavors. Mid-palate finds peach, tangerine, grapefruit, orange, and cantalopue situated atop a modestly sweet pale malt base with modest bitterness. Bitterness increases in the back, but is still subdued by the fruit flavors. Aftertaste is of lingering hop bitterness with some nice fruit flavors (peach, tangerine, grapefruit) and light malt sweetness.

Beer is medium-bodied with carbonation of medium to medium-light intensity. The beer foams up slightly, but is still smooth overall. Closes out with a little burn from ethanol, fostering a dry finish and little residual stickiness across the palate.
