Pours a clear dark orange with two finger thick white head, streaks of lace down the glass. Smell: herbs, pine, a whiff of grapefruit. Taste: sweet at the start then a blast of bitterness, somewhat indistinct, but mostly pine oriented, then minty and earthy with some orange citrus in the finish. Carbonation is right; oily with lingering herbs + earth. This is good, except for the BS about this being a pale ale. It's an IPA that's weak in the aroma department; judge it as such. Canned 9/4/12.

Poured from a can into a pint glass

Poured a pale golden color with a about a finger of off white head. Slight bready fruity smell. Not a whole lot of nose on this one. Dale's has a medium, malty, biscuty, body with a lot of bitterness on the back end. It drinks very much like an IPA IMHO. It's not bad but not great, but is very drinkable. It just seems a bit unbalanced for a pale ale. If some poured it in a glass and said guess the style I would have said IPA, which isn't entirely a bad thing

From my gf's dad

A&S: Right off the back grapefruit, very powerful grapefruit. Very slight maltiness. Translucent lively orange colored beer. Off-white head that hangs around at a quarter finger level. Great lacing on this one

T&M: Super hoppy upfront again focused in citrus particularly grapefruit. Medium body and carbonation.

Overall: Super drinkable overall great
