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.

A: There is a brewed date on the bottle of 7/11/13. The beer is a hazy dark gold with an off white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the glass.

S: A medium floral and citrus hops aroma with a strong malt aroma showing moderate biscuit and caramel character. Some fresh dry hops notes along with the grassiness that that brings.

T: A solid hops bitterness over a strong malt foundation with a moderate creaminess. Biscuit and caramel flavors from the malt with low hops flavors. Moderate English yeast fruitiness. The balance is firmly bitters with an off-dry finish.

O: A bitter, somewhat fruity beer with a big hop nose.
