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.

Can from jake65 - thanks! Pine and resin aroma - very hoppy and lightly floral. Lychee and citrus. Clear, vibrant orange body and a creamy, lacing, rocky (beautiful!) beige head. No carbonation visible. Dry, bitter taste, nicely balanced by sweetness. Thinnish body comes off as feeling medium-full. Loads of bready hops leading to a dry, hoppy aftertaste. This is an ideal everyday IPA - balanced and very drinkable, not to mention flavorful. Very happy with this one!

Poured an amberish color with a thick white head and left good lacing. The aroma is of citrus fruits, and full on hops. The flavor is citrusy with some malts and dose of hops in the middle. The bitterness from the hops comes through, but not too strong. It is a medium bodied beer with just right the amount of bitterness. The finish is smooth and clean. One of the best beers I have had out of a can.

jake65 (3351) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Can: Pours an orange copper color with a large white head and nice lacing. Nose is hoppy with citrus and florals, some sweetness. Taste is a simple blend of floral hops and malt with some citrus and grassey notes. Creamy and rich on the palate. I foresee taking sixers of this on the next camping trip...

Six pack from Total Wine here in Jacksonville Florida. This has to be the best tasting beer from a can I have had in a long time. Malty, hoppy in aroma and taste, I was thoroughly impressed with this one. Great job.

bboven (103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2007
An awesomely surprising beer. Full of malt but the hops balance iti to make one of the smoothest beers I have ever had. Itís like an old speckled hen but hoppier.

FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Can. 12 fl. oz. A clear, amber color with small, off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit and caramel. Medium body with a creamy texture and a long, lingering finish that seems to stick to the roof of your mouth. Flavor is a nice balance of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Very drinkable and very good.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - MAY 31, 2007
A big thanks to theisti for this can. If I could get this in Kansas City, it would be a staple in my fridge. It pours a flat, light brown with a large, frothy, off-white head that diminishes with time. The aroma is all hops, citric and lightly floral. The mouthfeel is light and creamy with a bitter finish. The flavor is dominated by the hops without smacking you in the head. The front is a serious hop hit with a sweet malty middle following. A dry citric-hop kick finishes things off. A very flavorful and drinkable beer. If only all canned beer could taste like this...

TURDFERGUSON (4042) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Can. Pours a clear orange that is dark around the edges. Retains a thin white head. Nose is hops, sugary candy malts. Flavor is crisp and refreshing--I could drink this all night. Nothing really stands out other than the fact that this is a very drinkable pale ale. I wouldnt call it an ipa, but its a fabulous pale ale. The first several times I had this I didnít care for it (I was drinking it out the can then), but here I am on my 3rd can and I canít stop. Well done.

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Pours a clear shade of burnt orange. Retains a very thin layer of foam. Aromas of almond, sugared grapefruit, wet leaves. Flavor is crisp and clear. Fresh grapefruit juice and a hint of garlic rubbed artichoke. Quenching. Palate is lively while somewhat earthy, leaving just the right sediment of bitterness to soak the mouth. No deviances at all. One of the best straightforward renditions.
