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 canít, where flavorless canned beers donít belong. And no matter where you drink Daleís 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.

Huge nose of hops, orange blossoms, candy, and more hops. Awesome. Slightly thin palette. Plenty of hops, some grains, grapefruit. finishes much the same. Would be an amazing session if it lightened up on the hops just a little. Still excellent.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2011 Sure, the canís a kick in the ass but this really is as tasty a brew as folks have said. A nice big APA, with more malts than Iíd expect - the bready presence gives it a more creamy feel than you might expect for something so aggressively hopped. Very nice and tangy, with enough complexity to make this a regular.

Aroma wisps of carameled malt and wafting citrus orange hop juice. Pours medium amber, with a rich foamy head in off-white. Flavor a smooth, yet biting, desert-like Columbus and other West Coast hop bomb over a light toasted wheat and sweet sugars. Ends very dry. A heavy-hopped APA with a well supporting malt body. In the end, I find the hops little coarse, especially when it runs for so long on the tongue. Iím having trouble saying much else about this particular beer. Itís good, not amazing.

Ok, I have avoided beers in a can. After all, beer is supposed to taste better in a bottle than in a can, rght? Well not in this case. This is a very good pale ale, Citrusy, hoppy aromas float from the glass. Flavors of grapefruit and a nice malty overtone. Great beer in a can. Extremely quaffable.

Nice clear light copper pour with a thick white head. Moderate fresh pine hop aroma floats well over a nice malt base. Light palate. Smooth taste, with a decent citrusy hop finish. Extremely drinkable, and a pleasure to drink as well. Well done.

I love all the beers from this brewery, but this is my favorite. It has a nice bit of hop on the nose and a very balanced taste. It is a hoppy beer, but not so much that I cringe with every sip. Pours out of the can with a good head and beautiful color. Just writing this review makes we want to open up another one.

The best beer I think Iíve ever drunk from a can. Great hop aroma, attractive pale amber colour and tons of hop punch. Citrus pine and grapefruit melded with a delicious smooth malt background. Hugely drinkable hop fix.

Boy I wish my Golf club would carry this...gotta make things happen...screw it...Iíll see if they can special order it...it never hurts to ask...lol. I think it IS better than Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but I had to give them the same overall score since you can see the sediment in the SNPA bottle.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 you do this in a can, you did something! a real piney, hoppy winner. all explaning aside this beer has got to be a true giant in the cask or on the tap. nice malts that seem to come from that region. nice mid palate style makes it great anytime of the year. the more great ipaís you try - the more you will find this an upper middle class ipa. the malt and hop profiles conspire to create a wet broom taste - as you drink more of these you start to really notice.
