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.

Can, with a big thanks to boboski, pours a clear orange amber with a large foamy tan head, great lacing. Aroma of pine/resin, some citrus and caramel. Flavor is a milder hops bite, but very pleasing and refreshing. Palate is a clean, fairly abrupt finish of malts following the hops bite almost immediately. A very drinkable, milder IPA that is quite well done, and a stellar warm weather beer.

can....appearance:clearest IPA that iíve seen in my day. translucent golden brown with a thin slightly off-white head....aroma: grassy, piney hops that wasnít too assertive at all which takes away from its appeal.....taste: bitter pine hops with an almost metallic like taint to it which i didnít particularly enjoy. caramel malt adds to the taste profile but generally speaking, there are better IPAs out there and would choose a two hearted or alesmith over this one (out of the ones iíve had and enjoyed which isnít a whole lot!).

Can - Shaker. Definitely a straight-forward IPA. Slightly bigger than your average. Almost feels like a double IPA. Pours very orange beer with high hops aroma. Pretty balanced flavors of hops and sweet malt. Pretty decent.

poured copper. huge grassy hop aroma. huge hop flavor as well. pretty mild bitterness. citrusy, orangey, piney flavors and aromas come through more when it warms. enjoyable malt flavor. havenít had a beer before with this much hop flavor with such low bitterness. kinda like sucking on a hop leaf.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Can: Deep orange pour, with some clarity and a creamy tan head. Nicely aromatic with sweet hops (amarillo, cascade) cookie malt, roasted caramel and a slight floral touch. Somewhat creamy with dense smooth carbonation. Itís funny to drink such a nicely hopped ale from a can. Nice floral/piney hops with a slightly sticky malt back. Finish is a solid long bitterness. A standard but enjoyable IPA.

12oz can. The aroma is nuts and metallic hops. The flavors are more of the same with some pine flavs in the finish. Nice beer from a can. This should be in 30paks and come with ping pong balls.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Can. Pours a somewhat dark burnt orange with a fairly dense off-white head. Aroma is a well rounded mix of citrus, bread, toffee and perhaprs a light dose of grapefruit. Caramel flavor hits first, with plenty of citrus and bitter hop flavor, some toast on the back of the throat, and a finish that mixes the bread and citrus rind hop flavor as well as any pale ale could. So smooth and drinkable but thereís loads of flavor to this beer as well. Thanks jrob!

alexanderj (3311) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2007
POured an orange amber, small to medium white, lightly creamy head. Aroma was great; caramel malt, pine and citrus. Palate really nice too; a bit creamy. For the style, quite easy drinking. Hops up front, not overpowering; followed by malt and a crisp/dry finish. Another good one from them

EithCubes (4833) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Can from jake65 - thanks! Pine and resin aroma - very hoppy and lightly floral. Lychee and citrus. Clear, vibrant orange body and a creamy, lacing, rocky (beautiful!) beige head. No carbonation visible. Dry, bitter taste, nicely balanced by sweetness. Thinnish body comes off as feeling medium-full. Loads of bready hops leading to a dry, hoppy aftertaste. This is an ideal everyday IPA - balanced and very drinkable, not to mention flavorful. Very happy with this one!

Poured an amberish color with a thick white head and left good lacing. The aroma is of citrus fruits, and full on hops. The flavor is citrusy with some malts and dose of hops in the middle. The bitterness from the hops comes through, but not too strong. It is a medium bodied beer with just right the amount of bitterness. The finish is smooth and clean. One of the best beers I have had out of a can.
