St. Lupulin Extra Pale Ale brewed by Odell Brewing - Fort Collins, Colorado
just released St. Lupulin Extra Pale Ale. Now in its fourth year, St. Lupulin
follows the brewery’s Red Ale as part of its seasonal lineup of beers.
St. Lupulin (loop-you-lin) pays tribute to a mystical legend who was
tirelessly devoted to his rows of hops and the yellow resin residing in the
hop cones. This resin, or Lupulin, contains the essential oils that give the
hop its flavor and aroma.
Light in color, St. Lupulin is a dry-hopped extra pale ale with a clean and
crisp finish. The brewers selected a variety of hops, including Cascade and
Centennial, that create a bright citrus and floral aroma and flavor. Hints
of grapefruit balance the subtle, sweet malt base. St. Lupulin has an ABV of
6.5%, and is available through September in the brewery’s ten state
“Odell’s summer seasonal St. Lupulin fits the extra-pale-ale bill
perfectly.” said Jennie Dorris in her 5280 Magazine blog. “The flavor starts
with a blast of hops, and it finishes light and clean.”
Odell Brewing will celebrate the return of St. Lupulin and warmer days with
a tapping party at the brewery’s Tap Room on Saturday, April 21st, 2012.
Guests can enjoy live music, local food, and backyard games.
