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.

12 ounce can that I received in a trade at Dark Lord Day 2010. I have read quite a bit about this brewer and was pretty excited to finally get to try something by them. Poured a deep amber color with a medium amount of carbonation and a one finger width white frothy head that stuck around for a while. The aroma was pleasant but was a bit bland for an APA. It consisted of fresh hops, pine and some light citrus. The taste was along the same lines but had a great crisp hoppy bitterness that made me want more and more. Finished with a nice bitterness. I really wish I could have this on a daily basis... this would be a perfect brew to have in a cooler at a tailgate or any other summer activity!

tap. very tasty pale ale! Definitely one of the better ones - pretty close to an IPA - maybe a RIPA even. Loved it. This brewery makes some great stuff

Slightly foggy bright orange, film of creamy head. Aroma is quite balanced really, with lots of cereal, fruity malts. Of course there are hops (grapefruit first and foremost, resin backup), but for an american ale, it’s remarkably malt-forward. Which is nice! It’s refreshing, drinkable, and has a lot going on. More please!
