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.

I happen to be lucky enough to live in an area where this is available. Pours a nice amber color, decent head that lasts about 1/3 of the way through. Very hoppy - sweet taste. The alcohol doesn’t overpower the beer, either. I highly recommend trying this brew.

Extremely well balanced IPA (and in a can!). Excellent rounded finish. Little pricy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is grassy, with mineral, and slight lemon zest. Tastes of mild light wood join the mineral and grass flavours with some mild peppery spice followed by pleasant malt and juicy lemon flavours. This has an almost medium body, smooth, it finishes somewhat dry and nicely bitter followed by lingering caramel and grass. This is what I want in an American Pale Ale; a little extra hop balances this beer beautifully. Outstanding!

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Big beer! Awesome ice cold in a pint glass on a hot summer day! Flavor is outstanding and carbonation is just perfect if you want to slug one back and let out a roar! In my personal top 10 for sure!

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

Pours a rich amber color, comes in a variety of sizes. The stovepipe is where it’s best.

A very solid IPA with a slightly bitter aftertaste. I love it ice cold and yet I did not like it the first time. I very much like it now.

I despise hoppy beers… that being said somehow I love this beer. While it isn’t as hoppy as other beers it’s very hoppy compared to what i usually drink

Great Effort! I read about this in the NYb Times and they said it would be a great beer to drink at anytime......boy were they correct. Love it even if it only comes in a can!
