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.

Enjoyed Dale’s from a can I brought back from a trip to CO. First had this at Roo ’06. Sharing with Grant on my "new" deck. Poured dark gold...almost amber. Lots of carbonation and fiz. The head was strong, white and foamy. It gave some decent lacing to the glass. This is a crisp IPA with hints of mellow fruit at the start; like a peach tastes in the morning. At the tail end is a powerful citrus punch delivered by the intense hops they pack in. This beer is very refreshing on a hot day. I’m thinking I would like to find a way to get some to MO sometime soon.

I kinda dig this new good beer in a can trend. I would feel like I wasted my money, however, if i drank this out of a can, but I think for freshness you canít beat this container. I think a good beer needs to have your nose all in it. This one i poured and i have to say iím really impressed. More like a lot of the IPAís Iíve had. With a 6.5 ABV on a standard pale, Iím a little curious about how Iím going to get my hands on their IPA!! I bought their Irish style ale too. Bout to rate that one next. This one, though, is delicious. Clean sweet malt and good hops through the whole deal. Great clean stuff. Really good.

12 oz. can. Pours a golden-copper color with a two-finger creamy head. A lot of biscuit in the aroma punctuated with citrus and floral hops. Flavor has tangy hops up front followed by strong malt leading into a bitter hop finish. Very balanced. Mouthfeel is smooth but fairly heavy - possibly the only impediment for this being a stellar session beer. Now, if only Oskar Blues was to be had in Michigan...

jerd16 (226) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 Heavily malty on the nose, with some earthy and subtle citrus notes.Not particularly enticing. Palate is fairly light but not thin. A little transient. Toffee malt is predominant flavor partnered with some pine and grass. Rough, scratching bitter finish.

This is my favorite, everyday beer. The head is nice and frothy and lasts a decent amount of time. Not a hop bomb, but plenty of hops and sweet maltiness. Lots of floral hops, not so much citrus and chewy. Plenty of carbonation. I can and have drunk these for hours on end.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2012 This beer is sold in cans which is great and is a very good to drink. Very hoppy for a pale ale.

Can. Pours a fairly light orange with a medium head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. The flavor is strongly bitter with citrusy hops in the foreground, and nicely balanced with sweet malts. Slightly bready finish. A very good APA, though maybe not quite deserving of its phenomenal second place ranking within the style.

Really a super beer, and maybe deserves a slightly better rating over all. The taste is really crisp and the bitterness is more so an underlying attribute. Nice finsh, nice beer.

vulcanmeister (222) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Pours a light golden with a medium frothy head. Grass, hops, and malt in the aroma with a bit of pine. Taste is lightly sweet a nice long lasting bitter finish. A nice refreshing American pale ale.

12oz Can: Copper w/ a small biege head. Very nice aroma of sweet malts & piney hops. Flavor starts w/ sweet malts then a bitter citrus hop hit. Finishes bitter. Some crazy lacing left on the glass too...
