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.

Man, im having a good run on tasty IPA’s from the can, first Furious, then Sea Hag, now this one! Not quite as hoppy as the former two, but good hop bit that lingers on the pallet for a good bit. Good amber color. As of late for my top five IPA’s i think 3 of them are in cans!

Do NOT let the can fool you. This pale ale may even be amongst the best I’ve ever had, though I like my pale ale’s hoppy. This one blurs the line between the pale & india pale with its hoppiness. Pours a dark copper with a bit of a beige head. A must-try.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 I had this straight from the can. Smells really hoppy at first, but the malts really come through in the flavor... very unique and well balanced. Fantastic.

Ok, this beer just blows you away. Its in a can. You expect, “A pale ale in a can, novel, have to try it, heard the new cans don’t create off flavor. Expecting a serviceable pale ale.” But this pale ale is great. It closer to great homebrew than any bottled beer I have tried. Great head and lacing. Smooth, substantial mouthfeel. Nice balance hop, alcohol and sweetness. Ten thousand kudos, impressive.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Tap @ Mellow Mushroom Brandon, Fl and can. Pours a clear copper with a one finger offf-white head that lasts leaving good lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, light notes of caramel, and tons of citrus, herbal, and light pine hops. Taste is the same as aroma with a very strong but clean bitterness. Medium mouthfeel that finishes slightly sweet. Probably the best can beer in the world.

relatively high alcohol by volumn but besides that it’s pretty forgettable...

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 Amazing hop aroma. The flavor started out a bit hoppy and finished with a sweet malt kick, caramel hints. More or the sweet malty side but still very smoothe brew. Very tasty.

Slob’s secret and blind surprise (poured in my absence while returning filtered beer to the municipal water supply), a pallette cleansing cap to the nice run. This one was a dandy, quite enjoyable. Appearance was golden-amber in color with a nice foamy head. Aroma was grapefruits, light pine, it begged a quaff or two. Flavor followed suit, an almost perfect interpretation of the APA/IPA style if I ever had one, very close to along the lines of Stone’s IPA (my far favorite even to-date), crystal malts underneath, strong grapefruits, piney resinous notes alongside it all, full hearty mouthfeel, even grainy, more body than Stone’s IPA, yet a touch less smooth. Probably the best "APA" I’ve had, although I’d put this down as an IPA and rate it among my top 5 for sure. Thanks, Bert!

Bottle from CaptainCougar. Light piney hop aroma. Faint copper color with a big head. Medium to full palate for the style. Spicey hops up front with light malts throughout. More pine hops in the finish. Solid.
