A: Ruby Redish orange, with a tan head.

S: Peach, mango, strawberry, citrus fruit and peels in the nose.

T: Very fruit forward, and quite far from bitter for such a hoppy beer. Strawberry, peach, orange, mango, bitter citrus peel.

M: Medium bodied and IPAish carbonation.

O: Amazing, especially given the note below!

Note: Best consumed a few weeks before I even got the bottle.

3.76/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Glass Used: Nonic pint

Appearance: Clear copper color. So clear you could easily read text through the glass. Thick creamy white head; dissipated quickly with a film of small bubbles.

Smell: Bready malt mixed with orange-piney scents. There is an aroma I can't quite place as well however it's pleasant.

Taste: Pretty mild orange-citrus flavor (got this at the end of their run this season) with more bready malt & piney hop coming throughout leaving a mild bitterness behind.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp and clean flavor. Very easy to drink.

Overall: A solid pale ale. I could see myself picking up a sixer for a game or bbq. Would recommend this to those new to the pale ale style.

A - 4.25 - Nice copper clear color. Thick white head on it that leaves great lacing. One of the cooler bottles that I've seen in a while.
S - 4.00 - This is what a pale ale should smell like. Hop bite of pine but with a nice bready malt balancing it out. Very reminiscent of Dale's Pale Ale.
T - 4.25 - Nice hoppy pine, grapefruit and orange zest, but balanced by a bready malt that makes itself known. Great pale ale.
M - 4.25 - Bitter, light mouthfeel. I would love this beer at the end of a long run or hike. Aftertaste is sweet bready malts and bitter pine.
O - 4.25 - Outstanding beer for sure. Definitely one to put Dale's Pale to the test. I think a pale ale taste test is in order.

Pours dark, hazy amber color with thick, foamy head. Excellent lacing on side of glass. Hoppy citrus smell with strong citrus taste. Hints of pine. Hops and malt well balanced. Bitterness starts right when you start drinking until you have finished your sip. Mild bitter aftertaste. Excellent beer. The only thing I would change is to have a longer hoppy aftertaste, but it is superb nonetheless. You gotta try it if you see it, and drink it fresh.

Burnished copper body, with new penny highlights. Fist worth of creamy white micro bubbles of all sizes. Stretchy lace.

Aroma is a blast of orange, fresh from the grove. Strong out of the bottle as soon as the cap is popped, at arm's length.

Light sweet malt beginning, a little weak as a foundation, but not a major flaw. Juicy fruit quicks rides all over, leaving a fresh citrus sensation. Hop puppy nip at the swallow. Nice lingering finish, not heavy.

Light mouthfeel, bits of prickliness, easy drinking.

Good fresh APA, very tasty, very drinkable. I like these guys.
