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 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.

Pours a nice copper color with creamy white head. Nice citrus hop aroma with a note of caramel malt. Taste is much the same with a little more malt then I like. Overall this a solid beer.

Lots of hops and malt. Solid although a bit too sweet for me. Hides the alcohol quite a bit.

Pours a hazy copper color with off-white head. Floral hop and citrus aroma. Overly bitter malt flavor with grassy citrus accents.

Pours a light copper color with a good sized foamy off-white head, nice looking beer. Nice floral and citrusy hops aroma. Nice malty sweetness, overall a nice APA. Thanks OG.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2007 Pours a light copper with a big fluffy off white head. Aroma of citris, grapefruit and pine. Taste is a thick sweetness along with the grapefruit and pine. More of a light ipa/barleywine style then apa. Donít care for the sweetness. Columbus hops? A big thanks to Steve and Tammie for getting this for me!!!!! Re-Rate: On a second and third tasting I noticed some spice flavor and the sweetness didnít effect me as much.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2010 It pours an orangey-amber with sparkling clarity. Head is awesome, mostly full, creamy, and almost a pale yellow in color with great longevity and nice lacing. Nice nose with malty notes of light caramel and light buttery biscuits and lots of hoppy notes of floral, light pine, and citrus (grapefruit and lemon zest). Wow, the flavor is big and bold and like no other pale ale. Floral hops hit up front with slight citrus notes and hints of resin; plenty of backing notes of sweet caramel and faint toffee with light buttery rye bread also to support the moderately high bitterness of the hops. Palate is medium to full, lively, and a mouthfeel that is creamy yet refreshing. Finishes mostly bitter with some herbal and resinous hops while the sweet and citrus notes fade out. Anyone who doubted this beer, or any of Oskar Blues beers, because of the can is kidding themselves. So much flavor from an APA and nothing to complain about. The beer is almost a hybrid between an IPA, with excellent hop flavors and aromas, and an amber ale, with great malt accents; almost a scaled down IIPA. Wonderfully done and deserving of much more credit. Appealing to hopheads as well as having enough malt character to appeal to non-hopheads (like myself). Superb! Since OB has got to be big this beer seems to have changed recipes... Still nice with most of the same aspects, just not quite what it used to be.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2007 drank this one straight from the can to start, and then poured it in the glass. Had to for old times sake. Aroma was very citrusy (grapefruit), perfumy with floral notes...dark orange/brown color was a highlight, big white head to it...flavor was appealing, nice bitterness. Donít discriminate because it is in a can.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Poured from A CAN, this pupís only an inch or two away from being an IPA. It pours a deep copper body with a nasty lacing white head that hangs around for the duration. The aroma is fresh hot caramel with sturdy grapefruit, pine, and lemon zest scents. Medium bodied, itís a good balance between malts and hops, tilting just a squidgeon towards the latter. The finish is a mild yet satisfying prolonged PNW bitterness. Nice indeed.

<font size=-4>Thanks to <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=1 The recent IIPA incident has been forgiven.<font size=-1>

Beer thanks to nolankowal. Definitely the best canned beer yet. Nice citrusy and fruity hoppy flavor and aroma backed up by some hops. Solid pale ale that I would drink again, please distribute to Ohio.
