As a return to cans sweeps the craft brew market this was one of the first canned beers I had. Amazing it looks great in the glass a rich copper color with a great head. The smell and taste is rich with hops and the finish is so nice you instantly want another.

An impressive pour. Ruby copper with about an inch and a half of eggshell coloured head. Smells and tastes of spicy wood, and piney florals. Full frontal hops and a little watery. I think I may just need IPAs to burn my senses these days. Itís good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have a lot of admiration for Oskar Blues. I donít know if itís fair to call this a pale ale, given that itís so hoppy and the high alcohol content, but whatever it is, itís good. This beer has great color, and although it still feels weird sticking my nose in a can, it smells awesome. This, along with 21st amendment 21-A IPA are two of the best things I have ever had in a can. Dales Pale ale is good stuff.

Golden color and carbonated. Smell of hops and malt. Taste of sweet hops, malt, citrus and a touch of pine and honey. Wonderful bitterness at the end. I cant beleive this beer is in a can.

Pours rich amber with a thick sticky head and plenty of lacing. There is a freshness of dew-covered fruit in the aroma, perfectly balanced with a sweet maltiness and a balanced hoppy presence at the end. This is an amazing APA.

Bottle. Bright orange color with a white head. Nice hops in the aroma, very sweet, some toffee, decent citrus notes. Bitter, hoppy, a tad one dimensional, but still very good. Very little sweetness in the flavor. Palate is good, refreshing, but a bit watery. Best beer out of can Iíve ever had. Very drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can, pre-TOOL concert. Pours a beautiful and thick amber, with a nice head and intricate lacing. Aroma is an offshoot of grapefruit with a slight roasted malt presence. Flavor is full-on sour, with notes of grapefruit and grassy hops. A slight tinge of grape seems to be lingering. Full, flowing mouthfeel. Donít let the cheap-looking can fool you; this is a damn good beer.
