2022 marks the 20th anniversary of Dale’s Pale Ale. To mark the milestone, Oskar Blues Brewery has announced the release of Double Dale’s Imperial IPA, a double-take on the beer that started it all.
Double Dale’s is available now nationwide in single-serve 19.2-oz. cans, in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft.
“It’s impossible to improve upon such a classic recipe, so we went in a slightly different direction with Double Dale’s,” says Oskar Blues Lyons’ Head Brewer Juice Drapeau, who piloted the new beer at the brewery’s original Lyons, CO location. “Double Dale’s captures some of the citrus and caramel character of Dale’s, while achieving its own unique flavor profile and identity. We wanted to create something new and fresh that would live up to the legacy Dale’s Pale Ale created — most importantly being a boundary stomping, hopped-up beer.”
Double Dale’s is brewed with juicy, tropical El Dorado and Talus hops, keeping with the Dale’s tradition of utilizing only American hops. Fruity, piney flavors from the hops mix with a caramel-driven malt bill, the company reports. The beer is supported by a new mineral-forward house blend of H2O, which includes six brewing salts.
