look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured unto a pint glass. (Canned 11/02/2011)

Appearance: Transparent amber, with a 1/4" white head. Head settles after a sip and becomes nothing.

Smell: Smells really good, but pretty bland if you ask me. I smell the hops slight piney feel but wish just a little more potent.

Taste: If you ask me, "pretty d@mn good!", Great balance of hops, little bitterness but super smooth.

Mouth: Medium carbonation, and just right. Hoppy taste after each sip.

Overall: Well put together beer, but just right when you drink it. Sometimes I feel like just "inhaling" the glass. Not you starter beer if you just started drinking but definitely your keeper to keep an above average beer in your fridge for the right price. Salud!

Bought a 12 fl. oz. can of this from Wild Bill's Grill in Alta, WY for $4.50. Poured from the Red/Blue/Silver Labeled can w/ the Rocky Mts. on the top in White into a 16oz Pint Glass. Has CANNED ON 09-15-11 on the bottom of the can.

Aroma- Dale's Pale Ale begins with a fresh American hopped up aroma. Very strong for an APA and I dig it! Not much fruit or other attributes but STRONG hops.

Appearance- Pours a 2 finger head that lasts for a good amount of time. Has a cloudy, orange colored body. Leaves thick lacing behind.

Flavor- Good, medium hop flavor and a bit of grass. Has a light clean, malty background that comes into play towards mid-drink but is dominated by the grassy hops. Medium bitterness at the finish.

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, and bites with hop flavor at the finish.

Overall Impression- A very hoppy brew but can tell the malts had a part in here too. At first, I didn't realize this was from Oskar Blues but what would you know? Another great brew! I also thought it was only a Pale Ale and so had a higher rating in the back of my head but now that I know the truth, well, its still awesome! Recommend.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Rich gold body with a fingers worth of white head.

S- Grapefruit and pine are dominant smells here.

T - Biscuit malts start off, quickly followed by citrus hops, more of a grapefruit has the nose suggests. Has an almost buttery taste to it, then finishes with piney hops.

M - Pretty good, carbonation was moderate and felt relatively light given it's abv.

O - A good pale ale, not the best one out there but it gets the job done and compares pretty well to most.

Clear, golden body with a yellow tinged, half finger head that settles to a scant cover.

Citrus and pine hops, with a buttery, cracker malt smell as well.

Sweet and juicy tangerine flavors, with some floral sweetness as well. Biscuit malts provide the base, leading into a decent, pine hop bitterness that lingers in the mouth.

A very good pale ale. Doesn't blow me away, but a solid drinker.
