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.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2005 Soft aroma is slightly citrus, but also bready and earthy. Nice initial hop bite in the body, but seems a bit thin in the middle. Floral hops are pronounced. Good and drinkable, with a nice bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 Best Colorado beer I’ve had. Like its says very hoppy and fruity. Very drinkable, I find myself not getting turned off after a few.

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.

A bit hazy amber brown, small off-white head. Malty, some leather in the aroma plus aromatic hops. Malty, medium-bodied, some sugary notes, dry hoppy aftertaste. Balanced but quite uninteresting pale ale.

Ungstrup (29134) - 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.

omhper (19216) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2005 Bottled. Deep orange, small head. Aroma of apricot and grapefruit. Medium sweet and medium bodied. Pleasantly hoppy, but less crisp than some of the best APAs, and also less bitter than many examples of the style.
