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.

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.
