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.

12oz can. I was really surprised at how good this beer was. Granted, I didnít have any glasses, so I couldnít really rate its appearance properly. Plus the can is a little metallic-smelling. Anyway, the aroma was strong piney/nutty hops. Flavor was a very solid cascade hoppiness with just enough malt to carry the bitterness. Overall, a very solid beer.

12 oz can. Delish! I havenít had a beer this tastey in a long time, and never in a can. Iíve heard its the best beer many on this site have had in a can, but this was magnificant. The appearance (large billowing, long-lasting head), aroma (cascade hops), flavors (some more cascade hops along with some sweet crystal malt flavors) are all fantastic. thoughouly enjoyed it.

A dark orange with a nice frothy head and aroma just bursting out of the can. Hop forward with a nice creamy palate, really well done.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2008 On draft at Maxís. What a great IPA. Pretty coppery pour. Citrus and piney hops to the nose with a good roasted malt touch. Just a pleasure to drink. Assertive hops that donít blow you away, and well-balanced maltiness that fits in perfectly.

Luminous coppery-peach. Thick, retentive white head clings to the glass as it slowly disperses. Decent aroma consists of piney and leafy hops and nuts smattered with buttery caramel. Adequate but fairly unclean with a hint of popcorn. Densely carbonated and fairly soft. Highly acidic and slightly fuzzy, though, which fatigues the palate after a few sips. Coarse leafy bitterness immediately grips the palate and is soon trailed by husky Crystal. Malt packs plenty of flavor but certainly lacks depth and thus fails to allay the leafy and lemon rind acidity which quickly becomes disharmonious. Dirty and unfocused hop character is solely bitter and little else. Pine and citrus rind bitterness steadily intensifies, rather than teasing you with some intermittent brightness here and there. Diacetyl, while subtle, compounds the lack of cleanness by lending a buttered popcorn effect which tarnishes things. Finishes heavily bitter and leafy, with a high concentration of oiliness, but the ample dose of Crystal malt does a sufficient job of providing heft and balance, albeit in a relatively unclean fashion. Serviceable, sure, but somewhat sloppy.

Finally found this, kinda funny buying a 6 pack of cans, its been more than 15 years since I did that, and it surely wasnít good. Just for kicks I popped the first one cold, in the can, with no intention of rating it. Actually its not so great in that form - the hops come across soapy and harsh. That is not factored into my rating. From a nonic at cellar temp: amber color, medium creamy beige head. Strong hoppy aroma, citric and sweaty. Flavor dominated by citric hop flavors, hints of bready malt. Strongly bitter finish. They call it a pale ale, but its definitely an IPA.

Rated 7/18/07. Ohhhh yeahhhh, this is right up my alley. Beautiful cloudy orange-gold color. Small white head that leaves a decent lacing. Aroma is a nice caramel malt with excellent piney and citrus hops. Awesome flavor. Nice and malty with a great piney hop kick. Very well balanced. Just a smooth, creamy, malty, hoppy session beer that is an outstanding value. Without a doubt, this is the frontrunner to be my tailgate beer of choice for the 2007 UCF football season. I could drink these all day.....and I will!

12oz can. Pours a murky orangish-brown color; gorgeous, fluffy, light-tan head with great retention and glass-coating lacing. Pleasant mix of piney and citrus hops in the aroma; candy sugar and maple syrup maltiness. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lively carbonation and citrus hops at the tip of the tongue; chewy and resiny hop presence throughout, with just enough earthy maltiness to balance things out; still, definitely a hop-forward IPA with a great citrus and pine character. Lengthy, drying citrus and candy sugar finish. Kudos to the can.

Can at The Rover in GŲteborg. Red-golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is nice and hoppy with notes of fruit and citrus. The flavour has a nice caramel base, notes of fruit, oranges and grapefruit and a hint of honey. Harmonic and nice. 2378
