This is the first offering I've tried from the Lyons, Colorado brewery best known for jumpstarting the mirco-in-a-can craze (at least in my mind).
Dale's pours with a crazy-huge head that dissipates to an eighth-of-an-inch but never goes away. At first sip, I noticed a delicious sweet malt taste with the hops coming in late. The nice balance reminded me of an ESB. As it breathed a little bit, it got hoppier (and I got happier).
Talkin' Bob says that Dale's Pale Ale is being aimed at lovers of Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale. This is dangerously drinkable, and at 6.5% would ensure that nothing would get done this summer if I made this a session favorite.

COD 4/21/14. Pours a clear almost medium amber with a nice dark ruby tint. Tremendous head with excellent lacing and retention. Very nice nose of tropical citrus hops over a pine and light caramel background. Medium body with an almost slick texture. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hop flavors found in the nose, then rapidly flows to a pine focused hop bitterness over a slightly tart note. As the bitterness fades, a light caramel sweetness emerges in the effervescent finish. A tart pine bitterness with hints of spice lingers.
