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.

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.

Special-ordered this legend. Bottled less than a month ago, so very fresh - yay! Appearance: finger length head stays around a long time and leaves plenty of splotchy rings of lacing. Aroma: Earthy, citrus, and floral hops all at once. Malty also. Flavor: reminds me a lot of Tallgrass 8-Bit (and perhaps not coincidentally, both are canned). Malty, some earthy hops, a tad watery on the palate. Also a nice "slice" of tropical fruit. Hoppier than Tallgrass in the finish; bitterness lingers nicely. Overall, despite the bitterness, this is so light that it’s actually very easy to drink. This is definitely an APA; too mellow to be an IPA. Nicely balanced.

Nice caramel color and white head. Light, pleasant grassy aroma. Nice malt sweetness perfectly balanced with a grassy, apple, floral hop finish. Medium carbonation. Very tasty and easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at the Pure Bar and Kitchen, Birmingham. Poured a hazy medium amber with a reddish hue and a frothy white head. The aroma is resin hop citrus. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth woody resin hop citrus palate and a long nettle hop bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This beer really makes a statement. Tastes stronger than it is.

Aroma of caramel, hop, malt, citrus. Appears clear and copper-like. Good balance of hop and fruit. No idea what ABV is on this but that may be a good thing.

Before this beer the only other PA allowed in my fridge was Sierra Nevada. Excellent hop character with great drinkability.

Can at home. Hazy golden pour, solid white head. Aroma of fruity hops, citrus, some resin and grapefruit. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and very refreshing. Decent body and nice balance. Great session ale from a can!

Light bee colour with an off-white head. Aroma of hop with some caramel and citrus as well as some apple and pear. Taste of hops with some burnt sugar, sweet apple and grapes. A finish of nice hop bitterness. Medium body but a full taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
