Notes/Commercial Description:
The distinctive hop character of our 5 Barrel Pale Ale is due to the extraction of essential oils from select hops. We treat 5 Barrel Pale Ale to an infusion of fresh whole hop flowers in the Hop Back and the Fermentor, as well as four hop additions during the kettle boil. We like how this gives the beer a fresh, lively flavor and aroma.

Two finger creamy head with good retention and excellent lacing. Orange colour body.
Citrus and pine smells which are a bit lighter for this style of beer.
hops are mild in this ipa but the pine and earthy flavour balances this ipaout very well. Smooth finish with very little bitirness and no alcohol presence.
overall this is well balanced and is one i will consider for when i am craving something citrusy
