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.

Odellís makes some of my favorite beers. There are a few breweries who never disappoint. Odells has been one of those for me.Nice head out of the bottle. Sweet, golden color, faint hop/malt tastes. Very refreshing beer. Very good beer.

Thanks to Shanon for this one! Not so clear pale orange-amber with lower carbonation. Fruity/piney hop aroma. Starts with a floral sweet that turns citrusty and malty finishing with only a mild bitter and long lingering grassy/fruity/piney hop aftertaste. Very dry hopped. Solid.

Pours a deep amber orange, with huge bubbles forming a thick, long-lasting head. Lots of orange, lemon, grapefruit and spice, with a dry, hoppy finish. Smooth, thick mouthfeel and surprisingly well balanced. Excellent beer, but nothing particularly unique about it. Iíll buy it again.

Pours amber/gold and has a creamy white head. Itís a great looking beer and head-retention is excellent. Aroma is hoppy and malty. It smells really fresh. Taste is moderately hopped and fairly malty as well. I also get a hint of metallic and itís a bit too crisp for me. For being a session pale, the body is pretty big. All in all, Iíd say this is quite good, but not amazing. Iíd get it again, but I wouldnít really seek it out.

Light amber body with nice fluffy off-white head. The aroma is light citrus with a touch of caramel. The flavor is grapefruit, biscuit, and caramel. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Nice session APA.

The best pale ale out there. This beer has a light refreshing body as well as enough hops to satisfy the IPA lover. Beautifuly brewed. Four or five pints of 5 Barrel might start a love affair with this beer.

Nice llooking clear amber under a nice white head that sows some very nice lacing, and a head tht subsides to a tfine white layer in a few minutes. Based on the descritptio, I was expecting a biggerhop aroma, but there is only some subtle piney and spicey notes. Body is a little light, but not excessively so. Flavoe is alittle one dimensional with a caramel malt base and some accents of light citrus hops. Dry, thirst quenching finish.

12 oz bottle: Pours an orange color with a thick creamy and frothy off-white head that sticks around for a majority of the beer. The aroma is mainly of hops with some undertones of citrus, bread, honey, pine, and a tiny bit of sweet sugary maltiness. The taste isnít what I was expecting after the aroma. It is thinner of a palate and a bit watered down. Although that may be the case about the mouthfeel the flavors are quite good, just light. They include: some (though not as much as aroma and deScription lead you to belive) hops, bread dough, lemons, flowers, and a strange ending taste, that I didnít particularly care for, not sure how to describe it, maybe like pine sol (Iím not that expereinced with hops, but maybe its the dry hopping flavor).
