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.

Golden brown body with a white head that doesnít disintegrate for awhile. Great hoppy flavor throughout. I like OíDellís beers quite a bit

Pretty mediocre ale all the way around. Apparently RateBeer thinks this deScription is not long enough.

12oz bottle -pours a big rich to rocky off white head and hazy gold/amber color. Aroma is sweet caramel/pale-light/medium malt, secondary citrus/floral/spicy hops. Taste is a bit thin pale malt-some caramel, secondary floral/earthy/tea leaves/metallic hops. Much is OK but the detractors show up more, the further I get in. Thanks to chesky-SD via Joe-jwc215 for the trade.

BOTTLE: cold and refreshing, starts with a nice hazy copper color and beige head. Flavor is crisp and not very bitter at all with a mild floral aroma and gentle dry palate at the back of the tongue.

A nice pale ale that certainly trends more toward the IPA side of the spectrum. Nice amber color with subtle fruity-ness in the aroma.

I realy like this beer. I had it today for the first time in a long time. It is on the darker side of the pale ale spectrum, being a bright red color that is very appealing. There is a great hop bouquet in the aroma and the taste carries those hops with it, and balances them with a rich malt flavor. This is a big beer masquerading as a pale ale.

scooterbub (921) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours an orange amber color with a decent, creamy, off white head. Has a nice pine and hops taste and aroma. Reminds me of Redhook IPA too much. Overall it is smooth and very easy to drink, but Iíd rather go with something else.

jsquire (3798) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Deep gold color with a foamy beige head that left sticky lace. Melted toffee and hops in the nose. Lots of bready malts, caramel sweetness, and a wide, diverse, and unidentifiable hop bitterness that pervades the entire thing. Some citrus, apricot, apple sauce, and orange juice flavors. Interesting beer.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2008
Pours richly honey colored with a tall, lasting froth. Superb lacing with a full creamy canopy. Aromas of malted biscuits and a pinch of citrus. medium full nectar with good carbonation creating a fine, cotton soft texture. This is an outstanding specimen. Balanced malt to hop ratio brings out a wonderful citrus rind spiced biscuit laden maltiness. The finish is balanced with a lingering mild aspirin burn. Overall: itís balanced and delicious with freshness at itís peak. Theres a very subtle fruitiness that reveals itself as it warms. Delicioso!

tap at the brewpub - Pours clear light amber with a light caramel malt and hop aroma. The easy going caramel malt and hop flavors are kind of underwhelming, but itís more flavorful and crisp than their Levity Amber, so thereís that. Itís got a decent lightly bitter finish and is easy drinking.
