A mystical legend echoes in our brew house—that of St. Lupulin (loop-you-lin), 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.

Pours from the can clear and clean, with generous foaming. Initially, I received a big hoppy hit that mellowed out a little as it opened. It’s restrained, with hints of the beast within, although it plays nice and fair.

Tasted on tap in a random bar in Boise, Idaho. The beer list was a bit sketchy and I did not know it was an Odell beer until I searched for it on BA later in order to rate it. I was very unimpressed with the sample I had, finding it lacked head and did not have distinctive aromas or flavors. It was a very commonplace-seeming APA. Looking at the other reviews and scores on BA, I wonder if the keg or taplines in this bar were not treated well, leading to the beer losing some of its charm. However, all I can do is "call it like I saw it."

Look is somewhat hazy pale orange. Nose is a bit muted yet with notable citrus vibe and a tinge of pine. Taste is much less hoppy than what I was expecting. Rather muted and not very bitter hop with a decidedly citrus forward note, almost like a tame bitter orange rind. Feel is very nice with a lot of mouth coating viscosity without the sugary after taste.

Overall quite nice, I will refine the review after a few, but for now quite a restrained and mature take on a hop led IPA.

UPDATE: One of the best beers Odell brews.

Scrappy notes from 2018.
Chilled 6 pack. 12 ounce can poured into a pint glass. Looks deep orange with about a 2 inch white head. Smelling hops and caramel malts. Dry hopped yet wet tasting like a fresh squeezed ale. Not citrusy, a little sweet, a hint of green tea, kind of grassy & herbal, clean fast hops encompassed by great tasting malt flavor. Fairly light overall. This could be a daily brew! It is an excellent APA.

12oz bottle from mixed 6er received from friends Abbie & Amanda for watching their house & pets during the summer. Odell doesn't distribute to Washington. 1 week past it's prime per the best-by date (11/9/19).

Slightly chill-hazed orangey amber color. Good-sized eggshell white head that left streaky, spotty lace.

Smells malty, like a midwest pale ale. Hop aroma is limited to a grassy, herbal note. Big, bready, caramel-ish malt backbone.

Tastes pretty much like it smells. Reminds me of an old school, non-west coast IPA. It's okay, but it's not really my jam.

Medium bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel.

Least flavorful IPA or pale ale I've had from Odell. It doesn't taste old, just underwhelming. It's not bad, but it's not much of anything else besides just...okay.

From old, undated notes. Poured from the bottle.

Murky light orange color.

Thin white head; nice lacing.

High grade marijuana & orange citrus notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Flavors of pineapple, orange, raspberry & high grade marijuana mingle comfortably.

A wonder.

L:. Pours a golden yellow orange with a creamy large white head and a few fingers of lacing.

S:. A floral almost yard weed aroma, mixed with ripe orange. This is a kinda odd aroma.

T:. Floral, and herbal mixes with ripe orange, and a slightly weird earthiness at the end.

F:. Smooth carbonation, lighter body.

O:. This beer is a little odd to me.

Outstanding beer. Has the palate and character of a fine craft ale but goes down like a miller lite. Would definitely buy this again.

Pours a beautiful gold colour, just the way a beer should look. Smell is oddly enough, a chemical smell (on tap). Taste is good, finishes dry, nothing too remarkable, but definitely worth checking out.
