I have tried this several times and rarely found one that didn't taste exactly like the can it was poured from. An IPA is my favorite beer and I see promise in this one BUT they need to bottle it vice the can. That is how this beer has to acquire the metallic taste otherwise it has a future.

Tried a six-pack on my son's recommendation, against my better judgement. This is a very bitter, metallic-tasting brew. There are strong hints of pine, and frankly my first instinct was to spit our the first sip. This is typically a very high priced beer, although I found it at my grocery store substantially discounted.

I recently moved to a new place and as a gift I got an Oskar Blues variety pack from a friend. This included the Dale's Pale Ale, Mammas Little Yella Pills and Old Chub Scotch Ale. The latter two were semi-OK, but the Dale's Pale was so terrible that it not only compelled me to search for reviews to see what other people had to say about it, but also to create an account here to write a review.

It smells like any other normal beer, but the taste is so terrible.... almost like it has a vicious, metallic bite to it. Very, very hard to go down. Would not buy for myself. Would not recommend to friends. Just... just don't.
