4/5  rDev +2.6%

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.

87/100

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.
