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.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 25, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Pours hazy golden-copper with a thin, light tan head. Aroma is spicey/piney hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is nicely bitter with toasted & caramel malts. Flavor hops a bit too resinous. Medium-bodied with pine resin in the finish. I’d rather have a Boulevard Pale Ale.

The bottle poured a slightly hazy amber colored beverage with an ample white frothy head that was mostly lasting and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was full of malt presenting notes of straw and some slight presence of citrus peel, possibly grapefruit. The body was light to medium with lively carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started off somewhat Acidic and bitter reminiscent of grapefruit peel. The bitterness lasted throughout and the finish was long and slightly astringent.

Orange colour, small dissapearing foam. Floral aroma with strong notes of oranges. Flavour starts sweet and clean of nectarines and caramel. Finishes hoppy of orange-peels.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Tap at brewery. Slightly metallic, nutty, and roasty. Tastes like a thin American Pale Ale. Not bad, but I like the nitro version much more.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2005
[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] A hazy orange beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and cascade hops. The flavor is sweet with quite a lot of hops dominating the impression, and giving it a bitter end.
