With most of 5 Mile’s ingredients locally harvested from Massachusetts farms and with one ingredient grown within five miles of Ipswich, 5 Mile is truly a local brew. Dry-hopped with Cascade hops from our very own Ipswich hop yard, 5 Mile is a big, malty stock ale brewed to be enjoyed by Locavores and Omnivores alike.

Poured into Tulip glass. Beer was slightly over-carbonated which lead to a thick two finger head. Took a while for the foam to go down, and when it did a beautiful creme colored collar remains. Smell is of overripe bananas, wet pine, warm sourdough, and a little musty barn. The malt is heavy on the nose and explodes into a pine rush on first taste. Carbonation is lively and almost makes this feel like an IPA - though for the style I think the bottle could use a good 6 months in the cellar. The finish is long and feels like grilled orange peel and pine. If I pick this up again, its going in the cellar. I think it needs a few months to settle down. Overall, a decent Old Ale.

22oz Bottle, purchased at Downtown Wine & Spirits - Somerville, MA. Leafy, green fresh hop aroma, juicy. Flavors are clean, but rather plain. This is an "ale" in the most simple way. I wish this had been chosen to be slightly more distinct in form, because the ingredients are of high quality and have something to show. Kind of like a slightly beefed up American Pale Ale. Balanced, fresh, and hearty.

Pours clear amber into a Sam glass. Pancake head with excellent retention leaves spider lacing as it recedes. Toasted malt and hay aromas. Sweet caramel and bread upfront turning to an bready earth and bitter resin finish.
