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.

Pizd (435) - 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.

Bulk_Carrier (4999) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a slightly hazy orange brown body with a one finger white foamy head that dies within thirty seconds. There is a slight amount of carbonation is seen rising. The smell has some light caramel, malts and bitter hops. The taste is slightly sweet, caramel aftertaste, dry finish. The palate is light and sessionable. Carbonation seems a bit higher than most English Pale Ales, but not overwhelming. Overall, this is a pretty good EPA that I would probably have again.

freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours a nice dark gold, hint of copper with some off white fizz. The aroma is pale cereal grains with a moderate hop character. The flavor is nice and smooth grains, smooth cereal and light biscuit with some light citrus and earthy floral hops along with a little fruity peach like flavor, all moderate throughout the beer. Pretty easy going and would bee a great session beer.

Draft - Nitro - Piney, grapefruit with an earthy finish. Clear gold with a great white head. Light earthy hops and an almost light sourness with the bitterness. If only tastes as good as it looked.

Von diesem Bier hatte ich mir ein etwas aromatischeren, hölzlichen Geschmack erhofft mit feinherben, spitzen Hopfennoten im Nachtrunk.. Das Bier weißt aber eher ein florales Aroma auf. In der Nase, ein blumiges, grasiges, leicht vanilliges Aroma mit einer dezenten scharfen Note. Im Antrunk eine sehr starke Rezenz, die in komplexe Hopfennoten übergehen. Etwas schwächerer Körper aber angenehmes Mundgefühl. Sehr schöne Haselnussfarbe. Schwache Schaumbildung. Angenehme, nachhängende Bittere. Interessantes, unerwartetes Bier.

nickd717 (4556) - Sofia, BULGARIA - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is somewhat hoppy, citrus/orange with green tea and floral notes. Flavor is a herbal, leafy English pale ale flavor with a touch of sweet malt. Medium bodied and fairly crisp. Decent, but not terribly memorable.
