Take 5

There are a lot of things we have to do every day. This beer is brewed for those great spontaneous moments, meeting up with friends, taking a break, and having a great old time – you know, the things we want to do.

Harpoon Take 5 was first brewed on the Brewery’s 10-barrel system in early 2014. With each pilot batch the recipe was tweaked until the desired balance between hop aroma and malt character was achieved. This final version begins with a vibrant citrus and pine hop aroma from Simcoe and Amarillo hops and follows through with a sturdy malt profile from the combination of Pale, Vienna, Carapils, and English Amber malts. Hop forward but not too bitter, low ABV but with a significant malt body – a truly sessionable beer.

Tasting Notes:
  • Appearance: Golden/light amber with a slight haze
  • Aroma: Tropical fruits, orange, and pine.
  • Mouth feel: More body than is typical with this style by design.
  • Taste: Again intense tropical fruit and pine with less overall bitterness than is expected from the aroma.
  • Finish: Nice malty finish.
