Pucker up because this is one strong can of brew. The hard htting hops and powerful finish make is a really fun drink. The top of the can lets you know what you are in for as you kick this one back.

Nice looking typical American Pale Ale. Golden amber appearance with a very good head and lacing
The aroma is not terribly strong but has nice citrusy cascade hop notes.

The taste is quite juicy and fruity with a lot of citrus flavours. I tasted a lot of grapefruit and some oil hop resin. Dale's Pale Ale has quite a high level of bitterness that could push this pale ale into IPA territory if anybody wanted to regard it that way.

This beer reminded me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with a touch stronger flavour and a bit more bitterness. The higher abv (6.5% compared to SNPA's 5.6) may have helped make this beer taste a touch bigger.

A very enjoyable American Pale Ale with a good high level of fruity hop flavour.

Poured into a tulip glass

a - red caramel with white head

s - woody and earthy

t - starts sweet, then turns hoppy, finish has caramel and chocolate notes

m - moderately full

o - Not what I expected, in fact much better than I expected. Hoppy and complexity mix to create a wonderful flavor profile and the texture compliments the taste very well.

Pint enjoyed on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. Orange-yellow amber with a finger of light beige foam. Incredibly fruity nose, all kinds of things going on including orange, mango, peach, strawberry, kiwi, guava ... All blending together to yield a gummy bear effect. Wonderful hop aroma than can keep up with many full-fledged IPAs. Palate was more classically pale ale, however (assuming one can truly split hairs like this), a smooth caramel backbone with the hops still bold but not aggressive, everything well-integrated to yield a pleasant but mellow grapefruit, floral and tropical fruit melody. Mouthfeel slightly oily and smooth, moderate body and carbonation. Finishes quite dry, almost woody. Bitterness is notable. Great concoction, this, even if the nose does trump the palate by a wide margin.
