COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Care for some hops with your hops? Before we ferment our 5 Barrel Pale Ale, we strain it through a bed of 'em. Then while it ages, we add even more. We like how this gives the beer a fresh, lively finish. We like hops.

As we go about refining the recipe for each new beer, we brew up just five barrels at a time. That's exactly how we arrived at this pale ale -- so that's what we named it. Plus, it sounded a lot nicer than Giant Vat Pale Ale.

Ferris (3884) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Draft - Nitro - Piney, grapefruit with an earthy finish. Clear gold with a great white head. Light earthy hops and an almost light sourness with the bitterness. If only tastes as good as it looked.

freeofthoughts (651) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours a nice dark gold, hint of copper with some off white fizz. The aroma is pale cereal grains with a moderate hop character. The flavor is nice and smooth grains, smooth cereal and light biscuit with some light citrus and earthy floral hops along with a little fruity peach like flavor, all moderate throughout the beer. Pretty easy going and would bee a great session beer.

Bottle from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Lightly hazy, amber colour. Filmy, off white head. Privet leaf, wet hop, type aroma. Some light savouriness, too. Hint of caramel. Hint of bubblegum. Taste is grassy dry. Fruity sweetness underlies. Short, dry finish. Light sweetness right at the end.

hockeybeerguy (1931) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a slightly hazy orange brown body with a one finger white foamy head that dies within thirty seconds. There is a slight amount of carbonation is seen rising. The smell has some light caramel, malts and bitter hops. The taste is slightly sweet, caramel aftertaste, dry finish. The palate is light and sessionable. Carbonation seems a bit higher than most English Pale Ales, but not overwhelming. Overall, this is a pretty good EPA that I would probably have again.
