DON’T TALK SHIT!!! Notice that Dale’s Pale Ale doesn’t even have the word ’INDIA’ in front of it!!!!!!! Now think about the other, non-Indian pale ales you’ve had, and then realize distinctly that this is the best of the genre.
In colorado, for some reason, ’cheap’ beer is not cheap. in chicago you can get a sixer of busch for 3.50 after tax. good fucking luck with that in fancy-ass colorado. but you CAN get a sixer of dale’s pale ale for 6.99, which is all of a buck more than one of pb’fucking’R or busch around here. i don’t know what’s up with the distributor, but they’re half forcing me to drink fancy-bougie beer. that’s messed up, but DALE’S isn’t. around here it really is some fo the best bang for the motherfucking buck.

1/27/14 12oz can into tulip. Pours a honey color with one finger lathery head. Smell is pine and citrus with a bready backbone. Thin carbonated mouthfeel. Taste is hops and citrus peel. Overall, easily drinkable and refreshing. Would be a outdoorsy beer. 4/5

From a can, on the train. Great balance between bitter hops and weighty malt. Superb texture, creamy yet not remotely cloying, very clean in the finish. Hop fruitiness comes through too, but it’s predominantly bittering hops.

Smells warm; biscuit with a little caramel. Has good body with a slightly bitter pine flavor; some oatmeal and bread. A solid beer.

Brevard, NC version. Unfortunately something is terribly wrong with the east coast Brewery. The past month after consuming horrible digestive problems would appear and make my friend suffer for a day. The batch this week has an uncharacteristically dark color and the 3 of agree it has the smell of Beer, Grapes and Dirty Socks. Previously my favorite easy to drink and delicious pale ale has turned not worth drinking and will go down the sink. A sad day in Ohio to say goodbye to a former good friend.

Good APA, but not great. Really smooth and drinkable and I wouldn’t hesitate to grab another one and yet on a night of tasting some fairly average beers it didn’t really stand out...underwhelming.

More hops than all the other Pale Ales that I’ve tried, I’d buy it again, can’t wait to try some other beers by this brewery!

Draft, had a few pints of this tonight! nice copper pour with a finger of white head. Aroma, mild hops, citrus, and a bit of malty sweetness. Taste, bitterness from the hops up front, followed by a nice sweet malty backbone and a semi bitter finish, overall its very well rounded, and something that I could drink a lot of on any given night, just wish it wasn’t so expensive here compared to what it costs in the US! Great stuff nonetheless.
