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.

Poured from a tap. Cloudy orange with a big white head that lingered and left nice lace. Smells strong citrus and hops hops with subtle melon (honeydew?). Soft mouthfeel that is somewhat creamy. The taste was very interesting. It has an initial burst of of citrus, grapefruit, and pine followed by a malty middle and ends with a dry hoppy aftertaste. I truly enjoyed this one.

Can pours an orange yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is heavy on pine and floral notes. Taste is heavy on the citrus and pine hop flavors, a slight malty finish initially with a moderately bitter finish. Light to medium body and mouthfeel. Great beer out of a can, actually tastes better in the can than pouring it into a glass I found it lost some carbonation when doing so. Canít go wrong with a canned IPA to take with you places that glass bottles canít go.

Shot (114) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2014
From a 12-oz can. Pours reddish golden with a frothy head that clings to the sides of the glass. Aromas of malt, pine and citrus hops. Flavors are creamy malt with bready notes and bitter citrus. Slightly nutty finish with a lingering hop bite. Creamy mouthfeel, but nicely balanced with carbonation. This is a damned nice pale ale. Absolutely delicious!

Vestlake (113) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours an orange, amber color with a two finger head. Aroma is citrus and piney, very pleasant. Taste is more hoppy than most pale alesís Iíve tried, but nice taste.

aerosol999 (113) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2007
Appearance: Pale gold with a thick clingy head. Aroma: Almost wheaty, clean, hops are like sweet tarts candy. Very clean, very hoppy, distinct grapefruit rind aroma. Flavour: Clean and citrusy hop character, resinous bitterness, almost piney, good balace with malty sweet character. Mouthfeel: Light body creamy and well carbonated. Overall: Assertively bitter, resinous hops clean and a little like a pale ale on steroids. Who says you canít get good beer in a can?

ibeerlove (113) - Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2010
strong hop aroma with a slight orange aroma in there too, prevelant bitter after taste, dark golden color, definately was skeptical about how well beer could taste in a can, but after this beer that has completely diminished
