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.

Pour is orange with a small white head. Aroma is of nice fresh hops. Flavor is nice a hoppy and typical of the style. Pretty decent and quite tasty.

had both the regular and a nitro version at the brewery. the nitro was actually more pleasant. that surprised me.i’m listing just my notes from the regular tap because i don’t know if it was a one off with the nitro tap. this pours a light copper tan with a citrus aroma and a bit of tangerine. a tart almost sour lemon lime notes mix with something malty, but the malt loses in this battle, a grassy sweet and still bitter finish.

Braudog (5645) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 24, 2005
On draft at Yia Yia’s in Lincoln NE. Hazy dark orange with a wisp of a head. Only a hint of any aroma; the flavor is citric and bitter, but with a smooth finish. Average but fairly good American pale ale.

jgentgesdo (667) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Pours medium yellow with fair white head that quickly diminishes. Nose is bright and floral, very hoppy. The flavor is dominated by crystal hops, with some nice malt balance and just a hint of smokiness. My bottle had little ascerbic ketone character. Not complex but good.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Pours med. amber with a slightly off-white fluffy head. Aroma is of piney hops and some malty cookieness. Flavor is oxidized, med sweet with a fresh hopsack grassiness and alas… a huge smack of diacetyl. Body is med light. Bitterness is there but restrained, maybe 30-35 IBUs. A bit more might help cover up the diacetyl problem.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2005
(Tap, Crescent Moon) Pours an amber body with a small white head. Aroma of vegetables, citrus, and a bit skunky. Flavors of sweet and hoppy, but unbalanced.

Indra (2607) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Bottled. Fresh, flowery, fruity hop aroma with doughy, biscuity, faintly sweet malts in the background and hints of cedar. Medum copper color, clear, with a fine, lasting, creamy head and densely spotted lace. Hoppy, lightly citric, bitter and fruity flavor, progressing toward a balanced finish as some toasty, lightly sweet maltiness appears to mingle with the green, leafy hop and light, almost pear-like fruitiness. Finely effervescent and refreshing palate with a medium body. True, nothing too special but appropriate for this time of year in particular.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 2, 2005
12 oz bottle-pours a deep orange hue with a small white head. metalic hop notes with notes of peppers-chipolte and berries. odd aroma but its actually not bad. Probably pretty good fresh as well. flavors are where this beer goes wrong-very boring, bland and slightly oxidized as well. no finsih to speak of. this is definately a downfall from the decent cutthroat pale. odell, you need HELP!

BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Tap @ 16th Colorado Brewfest. Pours copper to amber with a huge foamy off-white head. Oaked caramel malt aroma with a fruity hop nose. Pine hop and caramel malt flavor. Medium bodied and creamy.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 24, 2005
On tap: Pours a clear copper with a thick, well-lacing off-white head. Aroma has a nice, fresh hoppiness and hints of sweet caramel malt. Body starts mildly sweet, thinning some toward a dry, semi-bitter, crisp hoppy finish. Not much complexity or flavor going on here but it is quite drinkable.
