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.

Pours an orange-amber, with a fair bit of trailing lace and yeast settling to the bottom of the glass. Decent carbonation introduces mildly citrussy hops aand a touch of sweet malts - the finish is lemony, with a bit of astringency, and a bitterness that almost leaves you questioning your choice in beers. It's not that this is a bad beer - quite to the contrary, as it's refreshing and doesn't have any off flavors - it's just that there are better examples of the style available.

May be best enjoyed when you're looking for a summertime refresher.
