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.

Rated 7/18/07. Ohhhh yeahhhh, this is right up my alley. Beautiful cloudy orange-gold color. Small white head that leaves a decent lacing. Aroma is a nice caramel malt with excellent piney and citrus hops. Awesome flavor. Nice and malty with a great piney hop kick. Very well balanced. Just a smooth, creamy, malty, hoppy session beer that is an outstanding value. Without a doubt, this is the frontrunner to be my tailgate beer of choice for the 2007 UCF football season. I could drink these all day.....and I will!

12oz can. Pours a murky orangish-brown color; gorgeous, fluffy, light-tan head with great retention and glass-coating lacing. Pleasant mix of piney and citrus hops in the aroma; candy sugar and maple syrup maltiness. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lively carbonation and citrus hops at the tip of the tongue; chewy and resiny hop presence throughout, with just enough earthy maltiness to balance things out; still, definitely a hop-forward IPA with a great citrus and pine character. Lengthy, drying citrus and candy sugar finish. Kudos to the can.

Can at The Rover in Göteborg. Red-golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is nice and hoppy with notes of fruit and citrus. The flavour has a nice caramel base, notes of fruit, oranges and grapefruit and a hint of honey. Harmonic and nice. 2378

Thanks to Casey for this can Poured light amber with a wispy white head, hops were very evident on the nose and what a great hoppy bite ’Hoptastic’!, this really suprised me and was one lovely beer, I can’t remember the last time I had beer out of a can, great beer only one think I think I could criticise this for was that it was maybe a little sweet although the hoppiness and bitterness did it’s best to push the sweet maltyness to one side. Cheers Casey

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?

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.
