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.

From the bottle. Dark for a ’pale’ ale. Good head on pouring but this dissipates quite quickly. Instant tartness leads into a mild sweetness, then a long bitter finish. Plenty of malt and sour fruit. Really quite like it.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a dark golden color. The aroma was medium grassy hops & bread . The taste was light with a bitter sweet finish. Overall a good Pale Ale.

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.

Pours amber/gold and has a creamy white head. It’s 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 it’s a bit too crisp for me. For being a session pale, the body is pretty big. All in all, I’d say this is quite good, but not amazing. I’d get it again, but I wouldn’t really seek it out.

It's malty with a good amount of bitterness. I like the hop character regardless of its subtle nature... A solid decent brew but nothing super exceptional. Yummy! Easy drinking with the odell house flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

soyorganic (280) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Tap, I was pleasantly surprisedwith this one and the amount of hops in it, usually you cant go wrong with that. It also had some caramel backbone. Highly carbonated, but just slightly thin.

Pours an amber color with a good size that never fades away. Really smooth beer, one that is definitely on my "Drink Again" list!

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Pours a light amber gold with an offwhite head. There’s a definite citrus quality followed by perhaps a "white grape" bitterness (perhaps apricot) and a bit of caramel (ESB-ish). This is thin for an APA, and it is a bit too acidicly sweet.
