Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale

CIMG1959

Here’s a classic. First brewed in 2002, this has become one of the quintessential American pale ales. Again, not much information on their website, so let’s just get to the review.

Stats:
American Pale Ale. 6.5% ABV. 65 IBUs. Colorado.

Dark amber colored with a nice head and lacing.

The nose is fairly hoppy, but definitely has some malts. A little bit of pine comes through with citrus. Pretty standard pale ale nose.

Lower medium bodied with slightly high carbonation.

Straight forward on the palate. Lots of hoppy goodness, giving quite a bit of pine and citrus. There is actually quite a bit of bitterness. Yeah, not much to say here. Lemon and pine are really dominant.

It’s very straight forward and standard, but sessionable. 86 points.
