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.

Straight from the can. Great session. 24 or 30 pk would be great. Great balance of citrusy hops and caramel malt. Slighty more hoppy. Very good.

This beer is great, very hoppy, not too much on the malty side, but I thought this would qualify as an IPA, tastes like one in my book. Wonderful hop presence and profile, crisp, easy to drink. A very solid beer.

Quality everytime. Very evergreen smell. The hops are incredibly present in the taste as well, but there are more malts than in the smell. This is a great beer for anytime. And when you’re done...if you feel so inclined, you can smash this beer’s container on your forehead without fear of getting glass jammed into your skull.

Another good beer in a can from Oskar Blues. Pours a copper color with a nice sweet hop nose of citrus and pine. Flavors follow, with stong citrus hops and a little vanilla. Good IPA.

Can... Poured orange with a white head, beautiful lacing. Earthy aroma containing hops and rich Malts. Full, smoothly carbonated palate. Floral hop flavors with earthy vegetable notes and malt grains for a nice balance. Finished with hops and grains.

canned, pours a thick light amber with no head at all, aroma of light malt with more hop presence then anticipated, flavor same as aroma, sweet malt up front, heavy on palate, with residual hop bitters, I would imagine that this would be good on a hot summer’s day strait from the can.

12 oz can courtesy of the Three Cellars singles selection (Franklin, WI). Pours a well hazed orangish amber with decent whitish head that laces and sticks around to most extent. Aromas are a very nice florally hop presence. Grass, lemon, light grapefruit, and light pale malts make up the nose with decent power and a tasty appeal. Initial is light bodied, sessionable in body and taste, pale malts mix with a nice lemony and grapefruity hoppiness, balancing the sweetness and leaving a pleasant bitterness on the palate. Certainly not the strongest pale ale, but a good sessioner and great beer on the go with can appeal. Finish is bitter, lending some sharp hop and bitterness at times. Picks up a point for being able to pick out some resinous piney feel. Sessionable yes and a good APA, but not the best by some ways.
