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.

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 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 beersÖ that being said somehow I love this beer. While it isnít as hoppy as other beers itís very hoppy compared to what i usually drink

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 Heavy hop bitterness dominates this excellent beer without ever going overboard. Highly refreshing despite strength.

Full bodied and consistently satisfying. Pours with a nice frothy head. Rich amber color for a pale ale. Complex hoppy taste with a great finish that hangs on well after it goes down. Glad to see it more widely available now. This is my goto beer.

This beer is a step above a pale ale. Very nice floral pine aroma with some of the delicious maltiness. With all of the aroma of an IPA the flavor dives into a nectar like malt backbone with spruce citrus hop flavors finishing well balanced.
