Pretty killer, yeah. It has a super grainy taste that I've never had in any other beerbefore.

That same brewery has an IPA called Gordon--I highly recommend that one if you can find it.

Does you husband drink all these beers with you? I gotta say--I'm impressed at your beer knowledge AND your tastes. Don't see many young female hopheads....no offense intended.

No problem, my husband started me off on the stepping stone (i owe it all to him)..... that being Sierra Nevada, and then he deployed for 6 months in a dry country.. that's where i surpassed him But now we are 100% on the same level and he enjoys homebrewing and taste testing as much as i do. I am a major hophead, and he was a major red ale man, but i'm bringing him around

This beer is new to central FL though, this is the first i've seen it around, but glad ot hear its good one. I'll look out for the IPA though, thanks dude.

Let's not forget Oskar Blues Old chub which is a scottish style ale. All their beers are terrific.
Yeah it comes in a can too, and it's 8%.

Dale's Pale Ale is brewed right here in Colorado but I've never tried it. I still can't bring myself to drink beer from a can. Guess I better give it a try.

I don't know if you are a hophead or not, Rich, but that stuff is great. The Dale's is a little too grainy for my buds, but the IPA hides that a bit with all of the hops. When I say grainy I don't mean malty either--it is def a grainy taste that I've never had before. He must quadruple decoct or something.

At any rate, they are both top notch brews.

Yep. I think the can is a good thing. I've had plenty of skunky beers out of bottles. Can't say I've had a skunky Dale's, and some of the cans I bought looked like they had been around for a while.
