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.

Light brown to amber in color with a bit of haziness. An inch thick rocky white head is present. Aroma of piney hops dominates and light malt is faint. The piney hops are also at the front of the palate. I also get some light grains but they struggle to make their presence known throughout even the fade. This beer is dry and crisp. It just seems more like an IPA.

Serving type: bottle

Nitro tap version into a pint glass.
A love medium-dark amber with a thin head of dense, creamy foam.

The aroma seems a bit muted. I get biscuit up front and a bit of tropical fruit. Mango, orange, maybe a hint of peach.

The taste is very nice, sweet up front with the hops muted a bit. I get bread and maybe a bit of candied fruit. There is a nice hoppy finish with a hint of citrus and grass and some lingering, light bitterness. Went great with a burger.

The mouthfeel is the highlight of this nitro version. Smooth, creamy and mouth-coating. Just awesome.

Overall, really enjoyed this beer. Would love to have it again. may have to pick up a growler.

Serving type: nitro-tap
