The name comes from the five high alpha hop varieties used...
The liquid is a little hazy; the colour deep amber/brown. The high head is warm beige; it ends in a fine crater. Minimal lacing.
The smell is fresh with bitter-fruity notes, some wood and blue cheese. Tart hints, some grape fruits and lemon peels. Over all very American flavours.
In the beginning, the taste is fresh and bitter. Some sweet notes and a hint of white bread. Pine-needles and grapefruit jam. No traces of the alcohol at all. The aftertaste is bitter with a mild dough-like sweetness: Broth and grilled meat, kiwi fruits and gooseberries. Some cask matured flavours of dried fruits in the finish as well as a tart touch of vinegar.
The carbonation is soft with small fresh bubbles; the liquid is smooth end pleasant.
I have waited over a month for my case of this beer, and it was expensive, too. Worth it? Hell yeah!
