Default Dale's Pale ale?

So, a moment ago I opened a Dales pale and, it had been sitting on my counter for about 5 minutes and it exploded upon opening. Most of the beer still being in the can I decided to pour it into the glass and enjoy the rest. Upon pouring it into the glass I noticed alot of sediment in the glass, I am wondering if sediment is normal in this beer?

I would say that's abnormal. I just had some this weekend, and it was crystal clear, no sediment, and definitely not overcarbonated.

Dale's Pale Ale is usually very clear.

What is the packaging date on the bottom of the can?

Already looked and there is no date on the bottom.

I had a can explode as I opened it, well, not explode but vigorously spew beer...granted it had been in my backpack for 3 hours of hiking and I was at 14,000ft, so I expected it to do that.

No help to you...did you only have one or did you buy a sixer? Open another and see if it is the same. It should be clear-ish, mine always are.

I wonder if the can was dirty when they filled it? I have had the same thing happen to bottles of beer that I didn't clean very well. They would volcano like mad! +1 on opening another can. If it is shady, call Oskar Blues and let them know. They will probably buy you another 6'er.

No it was only one. I was at my local craft beer store and picked out a random six pack. So having one beer be bad is no big deal...i still get to enjoy the other 5.

quick update..

I shot the brewery an email addressing them of the situation and they looked into their archives and discovered the can I had must have been at least a year old. They found many more cans at the same location when they sent a rep to check it out. I think it was a whole case of bad beer.

Anyways. Talked to dale and his guy who is in charge of quality via email and they are replacing my bad can with a few good cans and sending me some swag from the brewery.

I am just glad they caught the bad beer before someone who would not understand grabbed it and had a bad experience. Hopefully I saved a future craft beer drinkers perception of real beer.

One year old?

I think the problem here is not enough aging.
