COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with hefty amounts of European malts and four kinds of American hops, it delivers a blast of hop aromas, a rich middle of malt and hops, and a thrilling finish. It weighs in at 6.5 % alcohol by volume.

Why squeeze such a big brew into a little can?

Because we think fun in the great outdoors calls for great beer. Our cans go where bottled beers canít, where flavorless canned beers donít belong. And no matter where you drink Daleís Pale Ale, our can protect it from light and oxidation far better than bottles do.

Northern Brewer for bittering, Cascade and Columbus for flavor, and a big, post-boil addition of Centennial for aroma.

most excellent beer from a can - please do yourself a favor and pour it into a glass before drinking to experience the full effect - excellently dry hopped to give it a wonderful citrusy/piny aroma is followed by a wonderfully balanced hoppy/malty drink - this is the second beer that I have had from this brewery which has just become available locally, canít wait to try more

Had some on top, I thought the tap was hilarious (beer can). This beer really surprised me, dry and not too bitter from start to finish, goes down very smoothly. Not as hoppy as a lot of other IPAs.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Storm, another great session @ Papsoe] Average creamy like beige head that mostly diminished. Cloudy golden color. Fair display of lacework. Aroma of elderflower, grapefruit, apricot, very citrusy, caramel, and some underlying fruity notes as well. Medium bodied with a dry texture and an average carbonation. Dry and bitter finish. 31-08-2007

(Can 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Storm/markgugs. Slightly hazy amber golden with a rough, off-white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with some caramel also. Medium body with lightly sweet karamel and a rather hoppy finish. Classical APA (more than an IPA really). 310807

a old can from a very cold fridge does not hold up any better than an old keg from a place that does not rotate kegs very often, but still quite tasty when stale

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2007
Canned. Semi clear and amber coloured with a rather large offwhite head. Quite refreshing with notes of flowers, pines, fruits and also has a quite maltt sweetness to it.

CelticBrew (748) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Pours somewhat hazy amber, aroma of hops, wet forrest, maybe some pine resins. Flavor is full bodied, hops, pepper, brown sugars and malts. Wow, pretty good damn pale ale.

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 23, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Draught at The Ginger Man (Manhattan - NY).
Orange/reddish color with good head of discreet duration. Much flowery and perfumed aroma with optimal notes of wood, cask and toasted sugar. Dense and barren taste, rather sweetish but that towards the end it is developed in a determined and alcoholic bitter. Balsamic and harmonious, good persistence.

Cletus (6331) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Itís nice to see more of these brews making their way into CT. Pours copper with a white creamy head. Smells of pine, citrus, some tea, hints of pepper. Tastes of grapefruit, some sweet malt and bitter on the finish. I had some higher expectations for this.
