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.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2010 Clear glowing orange-copper body with a very small off-white head. Very soft light oily body. A bit soapy. The taste is dominated by baked ripe fruits attack followed by some juicy leafy hops without much flavor. Very mild fruity bitterness. The carbonation is sparse and a bit too soft. The beer left me with an sensation of morning fruit juice. Unexciting below average Pale Ale. Nothing really bad per say, but as memorable as a General Hospital episode.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2007
Mondial de la bière 07. Couleur cuivré pâle, légèrement voilée, mouse mince. Arôme fruité, houblon floraux. Goût houblonné, agrumes, pin, légèrement fruits séchés, et malt caramel. Effervescence modérée, corps mince et aqueux. Trop d’emphase sur le houblon, ce qui déséquilibre cette bière.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2007
Robe cuivrée surmontée d’une mousse blanche mince. Arômes de levures et de pain. Saveurs de levures, de malt et de houblon aromatique.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle: Fruity, apricot and floral aroma; caramelly, toasty and initially sweet; hoppy without being bitter; tangy, tart, and slightly acidic finish; Not bad.

valpoaj (631) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Reddish brown pour with off-white head. Hoppy aroma is very evident, and this lends into a nice hoppy flavor. Although far from a poor beer, this ale focused on one thing: hops. Nothing else to offset things, but reading the commercial description, this is pretty much what Odell set out to do. Good, but far from great...

theisti (3219) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours amber, not entirely clear. Dry hop aroma, hop taste, hop finish. Odell set out to make a hoppy beer, and they certainly succeeded at that. Not too impressed by the balance in this one, but certainly a decent effort.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2007
Amber Coloring with Off White Creamy Head. Malty Grains, and Soft, But Strong Dry Hops on the Nose. Medium Mouthfeel, Well Carbonated. Sweet Grains, Malt..Light Caramel and Toffee...Alot of Dry Hops to Balance..Sweet Undertones and Dry Hop Finish. Could be a Good Summer Beer.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2007
Amber color with a taller bigger bubbled dark cream colored head. Citrus aromas, but not the fresh, just squeezed type. More a lemon or grapefruit peel that sat on the kitchen counter overnight. Hints of scones and dough in the background. Actually a more traditional aroma as it sets. LIght apricot and mild citrus flavors. The citrus takes over closer to the finish and an earthy malt linger presides. Seems to be quite english, and unfortunately that means somewhat boring.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2007
A decent american IPA. Earthy hops, grapefruit aroma. Malty, and a good bitter finish. A tad harsh perhaps.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - APR 10, 2007
12oz bottle (thanks to Indra) poured a hazy copper/orange color with a lasting white head. Aroma was a musty citrus with sweet caramel malts. The flavor was well hopped from begining to end with a good malt balance. Not a bad english pale, but I still like the american style more.
