Canned on 11/28/16. Poured into a pint glass. One inch soapy off white head with a deep gold color. Smell is sweet malts, hops, pine, citrus, caramel. Taste is hoppy, orange and grapefruit peel with some papaya and toffee. Very crisp and clean with a semi dry finish. This is my go to Pale Ale. Easily available here and I never pass on a 12 pack. Dangerously crushable, especially on hot summer nights.

Dales aint kiddin' around. This beer is exactly what it promises. It's highly drinkable, very tasty, thirst quenching. Dales is a go-to for a kicked back night on the porch. Love this Mountain Pale Ale, it's crisp and complex, with the lighter notes of the pale ale family.

4-pk of cans, over 3 months old. holds up pretty well, but i'm sure this is a lot better fresh. grapefruity-orangey hop flavours with a strong earthy-piney finish. dangerously crushable
