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.

Pretty bottle.
Hazy amber with a creamy off white head.
Aroma is of floral orange blossom. After first taste floral notes were lost and a more fruity nose was more apparent, perhaps blueberries.
Lemon bitterness, orange. Nice dry finish.
Nice example of a English pale ale.

i truely enjoyed the very full hop taste.it seemed to have a bit of citrus which add to the experience. Avery good beer in my opinion, but I have just recently started drinking ipa's so this review is my first . First of many i hope. I hope you all dont rip me up to much with this. Not much of a writer, still working on it.

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.
