3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Canned) Hazy amber with a small, but firm and lacy head. Smoothly pine-hoppy aroma with nutty-toffeeish maltiness. Sweetish, very aromatic-hoppy, pine-citrusy flavor with a strongly bitter, dry finish. Medium-bodied, dry and bitter palate with soft carbonation. Bitterness is a tad harsh, but other than that, this is a pretty solid and balanced, strongly hopped pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Body-dark honey brown with a lasting foamy off white head with good lacing. Nose-flat pale ale, crisp PNW hops. Taste-very clean, just the right amount of hops, biscuit malts, light unacidic citrus, grape, light grass, medium CO2, very light white spices, light bread, low alcohol, light earth/soil, light astringency on the finish. All in all, one helluva beer.

Draft for pint night at Greenleafe cafe. Reddish amber with ample slightly off-white head. Very fruity hop aroma follows through in the flavor. Malty backbone is not evident but clearly balances the beer extremely well. No lingering bitterness

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber colored to almost red in color with nice foamy head. The smell wafts into our nose with hops, grass, malt. Good balance there. Smooth crisp taste. Superb feel at the back of the mouth.

can. outstanding APA!!! pours a nice clear copper with a 1/4" white head which slims down a bit, but lasts throughout. great pine and earth hop aromas... medium body with a bit of cream, caramel and solid bitterness... especially on the finish. very clean and well balanced. The malts shine through quite well... Oskar Blues knows how to make some damn good beer... and canning it is brilliant.

On draft @ redlight. Pours amber with a nice white head. Strong citrus and pine hop aroma. Sharp citrus hop lead-in, rides on a solid malt backbone. Nice bitter finish. Very drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Copper beer, lasting 2 inch, thick, white head. Floral bouquet aroma of delicious hops. Naturally lush, hoppy, sweet flavor. Very clean. Very delicious. Medium light, excellent palate. Smooth taste, finish, and a drinkablility that Adolphus Busch dreamed about. Finally a real beer, and a damn good one at that, that we can take down the river, and all those other places where you prefer cans over bottles. To sum it up in 12 words, this beer is the beer that other brewers have wet dreams about. Oh, and the lacing is superb, but drink it from the can. I just had to pour this one out to do it proper rating justice. You’re damn right, fun in the great outdoors calls for a great beer, and with Dale’s we finally have one. Worth every penny and then some. Overall impression of 20 for having the balls to produce such a *W i L D** and great product and puT iT iN a cAN!!!
