I like sucking down a few Dale's ...Great Beer with a NICE alcohol content for a Breskie....Lil' to "Hoppy" (unless they produce a Hoppier one?) for me personally...2-3 of them is enough...I don't think I have ever swilled more than four of them at a sitting...Always an occasional 'Go Too' though...Fer' sure

Served from a can into a clean brew pub glass. Poured nice clear copper color with a very robust head of small tan bubbles

Nice, American hop aroma, not overpowering, but very crisp and clean. It was in my wheelhouse, so it might lean a little to the session side for more serious hopheads.

Taste- was perfect for chasing my burger and fries, nice hop up front, nothing too bitter, very good for brewpub food, which was what I was doing.

Mountfeel was medium to light, perfect carbonation. Score another for the can trend, as i think it is a good way for beer pubs to keep the non-tap servings fresh and cold.

Overall, I always wanted to try this, and I was glad I did. I would not be afraid to keep a six for friends and make it part of my American Pale ALe rotation.
Cheers

Apparently I liked it enough to snap a picture of it on my phone. Too bad I tried it after a long night out on the town.

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.
