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 can’t, where flavorless canned beers don’t belong. And no matter where you drink Dale’s 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.

Lovely can. Thanks to Turdferguson for this one. I am living here in beer paradise, and for that I am thankful, but I do miss the hoppy kick of many great American beers. And I just love the can thing--I’m a native Missouri boy who likes him some float trips from time to time. Great beer in a can is such a gorgeous idea. Dale’s pours a translucent dark amber with a thin, lasting layer of off-white froth. Smells very bitter and a little grassy. Very rugged hoppy flavor, not a drop of sweetness anywhere, with a dry finish and a long and bitter aftertaste. Ice these babies down and load up the canoe.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 really nice amber color. Nice white head, that seems to last a bit, good lacing on the glass........aroma is a wonderful balance of malt and hops. The flavour is awesome! Such a big bang of hops, hops and more hops. really nice, and the finish isnt that bitter at all. wow, if i could get this all the time, it would easily be my daily drinker! So smooth, and loaded with flavour, GREAT IPA.

Can. Pours a cloudy amber-copper with a tan head that fades after a moment or two. The pour is actually a lot like the wiidget cans without the widget. Distinctive malty & hoppy aroma with a pinch of fruity sensation. Not a bad mouth feel with an obvious infusion of hops. Whoa! You really taste those hops! Amazing that it is from a can. Brewed in Lyons, Colorado. No relation to me. DId I mention hops?

Canned at the Rover, Göteborg. Amber color, creamy offwhite head. Malty aroma with some hops and citric notes. Hoppy, grassy, metallic flavor, fruity some oranges.

Second canned beer from Oskar Blues and another winner, thanks to Holdenn for this one. 12oz can. Orange, large off-white head. Citrus, sweet, straight up IPA aroma. Pine and citrus characters dominate flavor. Med body with some creamyiness. A great example of an IPA.

12 oz can. I do love a good canned beer. Pours clear orange witha beige head. This beer has a nice balance of carmel, citrus, and floral hop notes. Lightly bitter, some floral hops in the finish. A tasty sessionable beer.

Can (35 cl) at the Rover, Göteborg, sweden. Clear amber with a medium off-white head. Caramelly malt aroma, with floral and piney hops. Medium bodied and a bit spritzy mouthfeel. Nicely balanced with a marked bitterness.

On tap at the Mad Mex in Oakland. Foamy head and the color of iced tea. I can tell without even looking at the style that this is an IPA. The smell of floral hops abounds. Forget ’pale ale’ as it says on the label. If you were looking for some well behaved pale ale, this may disappoint and offend your taste buds. This stuff is IPA all the way. I’m chewing on green grapefruit rinds. Has some decent creamy carbonation. Has that typical IPA bitter finish that keeps going and going. Certainly a good representative for such an acrid style. Did not notice the high percent alky while drinking.

From a 12oz Can. Had a couple of these straight from the can during the July 4th fireworks celebration, and revisited from the glass a couple of days later; impressions were the same. Pours a mostly transparent, blood-oranged hued amber color with a finger of creamy white foam. Aroma of honeydew melon with a subtly spicy blend of white grapefruit and sprucey hops. A bit of gooey caramel and graham cracker play in the background. Medium-light bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel. Flavors of toffee and musk-melon up front on the palate with a fresh dose of herbal pine. A minor diacetyl buttery-ness provides some unpleasantness partway through the palate. This fades, however, allowing a final smack of earthy spruce needles to come through. A bit dirty overall, both in hop character and diacetyl presence, although the nose seems clean enough.

This is the best beer I have ever had in a can. The head is very foamy and is of a darker orange and brown, that kind of creeps out of the top of the can. The amount of hops is just right, I think I would put this in more an IPA category as compared to a regular pale ale. The taste is amazing with a heavy dose of fruity hops. The dry hopping is very noticeable.
