Just now I’m sipping a Dale’s Pale Ale from Oskar Blues, a Colorado brewery. It came in my mystery 6-pack and I would have normally been put off because it comes in a can. My mistake, it’s quite nice with an edge of hops. They call it an American Pale Ale, and it’s not as hoppy as that West Coast IPA, though it’s at least as hoppy as the East Coast IPA. Very smooth and refreshing, lighter and a tad thinner than an IPA.
Earlier I had a Lasso IPA from Great Divide, another Colorado brewery. That was perfectly nice but nothing outstanding, drinkable but I won’t seek it out, or avoid it for that matter.
