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.

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.

CheersMate (1312) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Beautiful peach/gold color. This beer pours smoothly. You can smell the rich hoppy aroma. It is quite wonderful. The head is nice and compact looking. This I.P.A. is great, and tastes better than 99% of the I.P.A.s that are bottled. Go figure! The hops are great and there is a wonderful balance between the malt and the hops. The malt makes this a nice, thich, and creamy I.P.A. I am very impressed. The bitter just lingers on my tongue. The flavors in this beer just stand out and get your tastebuds going. The beer is very smooth, rich, and full of flavor!

Pours out a deep golden yellow color with a nice creamy head. Aroma is rather floral with nice citurs and hop notes to it. Flavor is somewhat hoppy, but not quite what i had hoped for. over all this is a nice brew and im still blown away at the fact that they can their beers instead of bottle them.
