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.

ery tasty. Pretty savory sweet citrus even breaks through this insanely messy BBQ pork and spicy Mac n cheese. Dies a bit in the middle. Back at the bar after flight was cancelled. Birds in the propellers apparently. Sure. Nothing but straight answers from the United staff today. Peaches, caramel, rrgf.

Hazy amber. Medium tan head. Moderate lacing. Floral and pine hop nose with some caramel and canteloupe. Medium bodied, fairly high carbonation. Fresh bread, watermelon rind, some pepper, toffee, honey, nutty and roasty notes. Tasty brew.

12 oz. bb 07/03/15. Mostly clear amber with a small lunar scape of foam. Nose is honey, toast, citrus, and resin. Flavors of flowery citrus, caramel, resin and a touch of melon appear in a good proportion. Light medium body is way too fizzy but has a nice balance.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a medium dark gold and makes a medium white head with great lacing. Smells of wheat and bread. Tastes of hops and hops and wheat. Very crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12-oz. bottle. The nose features biscuity malts, toasted wheat bread, a balanced floral hoppy aroma with a touch of rosemary. Pours a light copper with with a thick creamy head and solid effervescence. A sharp bitter bite hits on the first sip but quickly mellows out, allowing a light caramel flavor to hold sway along with pine resin, prominent cereal grains, a touch of hay, and a minor (and surprising) rye-like spiciness. Despite the bitter start, the overall taste is well balanced. Likewise, the medium palate stays right down the middle with a slightly smooth texture and a moderate finish that concluded with a touch of bitterness. Whenever I’m in the mood for a refreshing pale ale, I often return to this brew (particularly when it’s on nitro).

Sampled from a bottle at the Bull in Highgate. Copper colour with a white head. Lovely floral aromas. The taste is really delicately flavoured with hints of orange flowers, Turkish Delight and freshly-cut grass. Very pleasant and easy to drink. An interesting and original Pale Ale with great flavours.

Quite delicately hopped. Spicy with a notable floral aroma. I like it. So many bitters in England are desrcibed as having floral aromas but i generally get bread and stale flowers. This is sweet and fresh like rosewater. Well done.
