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 can’t, where flavorless canned beers don’t belong. And no matter where you drink Dale’s 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.

Do NOT let the can fool you. This pale ale may even be amongst the best I’ve ever had, though I like my pale ale’s hoppy. This one blurs the line between the pale & india pale with its hoppiness. Pours a dark copper with a bit of a beige head. A must-try.

Pours a nice copper, medium head. Some hops flavor comes through, but something about the taste fell flat for me. Just ok.

Poured a hazy golden with thick beige head. Medium body, almost a creamy mouthfeel. Aroma was citrus, hops and malt.

Appearance is a hazy amber with a thick creamy white foam cap. Aroma is faint citrus Centennial hop with minimal malt on the nose. Taste is a toasty, bready malt with a spicy, woody hop flavor. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Finishes with a minimal lingering hop bitterness and a touch of alcohol warmth. This is a solid pale ale, but not world class. The aura of the can has this rated about 10 pts higher than it should be.

Ambrée orange clair. Mousse beige clair. Assez persistante, avec de jolis dépôts sur les parois. Très belle pale ale. Arômatique fruité, sucré-caramel, malt toasté. Houblonnage très présent, agrumes puis résineux. En bouche similaire, avec une amertume agrumes assez puissante en milieu de bouche puis s’estompe pour une belle longueur, plus sur le résineux en fin de bouche. Le maltage sur le toastage et caramel donne une belle rondeur malgré le puissant houblonnage pour une APA.

A very good apa. Not much in the way of aromas. crystal clear yellow hue. Spicy hop flavor. Clean refreshing finish.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2012 I didn’t like this at all the first time I had it, but mistakenly got it again in a custom six, gave it another shot, and enjoyed it! It’s a strong, soapy IPA; don’t let it sit in your mouth, gulp that mother fast!

Can courtesy of abcfan, pours hazy copper with little to no head. Aroma is pine, hops and citrus. First taste is sweet then hops bitter takes over. Strong mouthfeel with hops finish. Good can beer.

Very impressed with this brew. On Tap at Hamiltons in SD CA. Nice smooth texture, has a weight to it. Smooth balanced finish. Very easy to drink. Minerals, and more malt than hop. Slightly hoppy nose. Subtle complexity. Really to eash to drink.
