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.

Bottle. Nose is subdued earthy hops with a little bready malt. Flavor is the bread and biscuit, cut with a nice tart bitterness and floral hop. Good easy drinker, but a little water and just not a lot of very pronouced flavors. Points for the fact that I wnated another one for reasons not readily apparent above.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is a skunky, bitter, wine-like aroma. Appearance is a dark bronze with a frothy, cream-colored head. Taste is hop bitter with a fruit like flavor in it. Palate is pretty clean. Overall, a decent pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

burgy (455) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2013
This was a well balanced pale ale. Mild hop aroma and flavor that is almost over powered by the malt.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - FEB 19, 2013
Ambrata limpida con schiuma fine mediamente persistente. Aroma floreale di luppoli con leggeri sentori legnosi. Al palato ingresso morbido dolce con un ritorno all’aroma di luppoli floreali e freschi che perdurano nel retrogusto quando ancora fresca si sente un leggero gusto di pane che via via scompare quando si riscalda. Beverina e molto rinfrescante.

AbbeyRoade (449) - Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Nice orange amber hue. Fresh clean citrusy hop aroma and flavor to match. A bit effervescent and bitter on the tongue so not incredibly sessionable but not bad either. Not very sweet but not sour.

Quite delicately hopped. Spicy with a notable floral aroma. I like it. So many bitters in England are desrcibed as having floral aromas but i generally get bread and stale flowers. This is sweet and fresh like rosewater. Well done.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus fruit, malt, bread and floral notes. Flavour is nice and malty at first then hits with a floral/grassy hop and citrus fruits. Sweet fruit, bread and slight caramel notes in the finish. Very Drinkable.

maltman53 (432) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - DEC 1, 2013
In bottle, pours copper-orange color. For all the hop stories on the making of the beer on the label, the hop aroma is surprisingly muted. Nice head and lasting lace. Medium-bodied, nicely balanced malt/hop middle, finishing crisp, clean and deftly carbonated.

a great smelling beer let down a little bit once it passes the lips. poured a copper orange with a small head. sweet caramel and fruity nose, gives over to a too thin and oily mouth feel. keg. blind jacks knaresborough.
