Never reviewed this one before but it's a favorite of many of my friends.
A – 4.5 – Pours a clear amber color with a finger of fine white bubbles on top. Decent lacing on the glass. Can is cool blue with red and white logo, I really like all the Oscar Blues cans.
S – 4.5 – Really clean floral, citrusy, piney hop aroma. Some malt in the background and god damn it smells good! Nice caramel malt smell.
T – 4.5 – Clean hop taste – citrus, pine, some citrus zest. Some caramel in the background.
M – 4.5 – Nice light mouth feel with the alcohol completely covered. Bitter aftertaste sticks for a while but it's a nice reminder that you just drank a Dale's.
O – 4.5 – Great beer, definitely one for anyone getting into craft beers to try. It's a great example of what a pale ale should be.

3.81/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
12 oz can poured into pint glass.
Pours pure apricot with a thin off white head. Some nice orange and light lemon on the nose. Some slight bready malts coming in behind the citrus. Very citrusy for a pale ale, smells more like a IPA. Taste is on the lighter side, the citrus is faint but there. The bready malts seem stronger then I was expecting. The mouthfeel is soft and light, very very drinkable. For me, this sits just above the middle of the pack of craft pale ales. I would still take SNPA over this but not by a lot.
