Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 03-09-2005

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.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, gold coloring, with a steady flow of carbonation, and a tall, fluffy, clingy, off-white head. Nose of bitter and spicy hops, subtle citrus notes, and piney highlights. Flavors are smooth caramel sweetness, tropical fruit sweetness, bitter greens, and resinous hops notes. Smooth, light bodied, with a subtle resin and tropical fruit aftertaste. Smooth, slick finish. This is a tremendously easy drinker.
