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.

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.

Canned is still good (the can to go for), but looses the freshness it has on draught, the body, the hopping.

Draught at Five Point restaurant, NYC, 2006-12-29, 7-4-7-5-15
Hazy amber color; thin creamy head. Nice hoppy aroma, with some fruitness (oranges). Some malt flavor, with sweet caramel, and good hopping with some resins. Good, balanced.

Copper with huge beige head, great lacing. Aroma and flavor well balanced through and through. Pine and caramel for the most part. Hints of citrus zest. Really not much to say, straight forward ipa, highly sessionable.

Pours a nice copper, medium head. Some hops flavor comes through, but something about the taste fell flat for me. Just ok.

can. pours with much energy, golden yellow with nice frothy head. Aroma is ciitrus and subtle flower. A full bodied dry hopped with Pacif N.W. hops generously. finishes well balanced, crisp and dry. Nice.
