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.

pours orangish-gold with off-white head. aroma is sprucy, piney hops, along with biscuit and floral notes. taste has more pine hops, but also some malt and a touch of sweet candied fruit notes that help balance out the bitterness. creamy body and not much carbonation. good, and seems very close to an IPA to me.

Pours a clear golden color with a shade of amber. Earthy hops aroma. Very smooth masculine IPA with a slight metallic tang to it. Excellent beer...one of my go-toís.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a nice golden colour. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Taste is much the same with some maltiness and little alcohol. Great tasting beer drinks like an IPA though. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

EtTuCthulhu (1106) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 14, 2014
The beer pours a very clear orange color with a large white head. The aroma blends resin and citrus hops with some bready malts, and the initial flavor is mildly bitter but very well balanced with a slight sourness and touch of sweetness, which gives way to an aftertaste full of grassy hop flavor. The palate fuses a sticky texture, soft carbonation that has a sharp bite, and a medium body.

It pours golden in color with a large head that produces some lacing on the way down. It has caramel flavors, subtle hints of herbs, floral, and grass. It has caramel flavors mixed with floral and spruce. It is very smooth on the palate. This particular can actually came from Brevard, NC.

Hopmaestro (157) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2014
Aroma is pretty laidback with a rather heavy malt and restrained hops. The taste is perfectly balanced with the malt taking charge at first, but leaves the game for the subdued hops to clean up after the darker sweetness. Normally Iím a speaker of "the more hops, the better", but this one doesnít need that. It stands in a class of its own among the pale ales of today.

Tall can, huge head. Solid American pale ale with good hop balance with some malty backbone. All around solid and worth a try.

pours deep gold with white head. Aroma of sweet nectar, lemon grass, flowers, pine after rain, orange. Body is medium-light. One the watery side, medium-light soft carbonation. Flavor is lightly bitter floral, neutral sweet nectar, some evergreen and a hint of hay. Nice pale ale.

Can (12oz $1.80): Cloudy Golden with nice creamy white head. Nice flowery aroma. Medium body. Nice light bitterness in the finish. I think this will be a regular from now on.
