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.

From can, pours light amber color with a frothy beige head. Resiny aromas with a touch of sweet malt. This is a fresh, medium-hopped brew, not over the top bitter. Flavors are balanced with a dose of malt, with a pleasant, lingering, slightly piney finish. Nicely done, rapidly becoming my go-to owing to excellent local distribution.

Malty, not much hop aroma or taste. Mild bitterness. Too malty and will not buy again. Kinda like coast hopart which is also very malty. Would get at a bar if that all they had. Used to like this beer until I became a hop head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer 4 of the US tour. The perfect refresher for 29 degree weather in LA. Not an overly hoppy nose but great hoppy flavour coming through. The malt profile is just enough to provide some backbone but also just enough to let the hops shine. This would be a go to summer beer if I could get it back home!

Poured from a can. Copper orange hue with no haze, foamy white head that sticks nicely as I drink. Mild Carmel sweetness with citrus & pine in the flavor. Some apricot in the nose. Moderate dryness that lingers.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Can in LA. Lasting creamy white head. Big hoppy aroma, moderate bitterness, it’s an APA not an IPA but it’s close! Fresh, fruity, citrus and some grassy hops. Really nice refreshing summer beer, but the alcohol catches up on this big can. Great APA.

Drjohnrock (646) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Poured from 12 ounce can at Southern Culture On The Skids concert at the Southgate House Revival on May 9, 2015. Medium to dark amber hue, nice citrus/hop nose, good bittersweet flavor with lots of fruit and some complexity. Could stand a little stronger hop profile but this is a very flavorful brew.
