A coworker brought back a can of the Dale's Pale and Old Chub from a
Colorado trip. I took them with me camping. I cracked open the Dale's
first. It seemed very odd to be drinking a beer with good hop flavor
out of a can. I think that I am trained to expect light lager when
drinking beer from a can!

The Old Chub had a deep malt flavor that went well with the cigar I
was smoking at the time. At 8% abv, I don't think I would drink too
many of these while camping!

I like Oskar Blues' Old Chub very, very much.  It seemed a little odd
to me, too, to be tasting such good beer from a can.  I haven't tried
the DPA yet.

I heard that Oskar Blues has put out some really good, robust seasonal
beers in cans, too.

That would be "Gordon" their seasonal DIPA. They sold it in 4 pack
cans. It was a limited run and they couldn't actually get the cans
printed so they slapped a sticker on each plain silver can.

Right.  Was it the tasty DIPA it was rumored to be?

I liked it a lot.
It had huge hop character but I thought the malt did a great job of
balancing it out.

I read that they put some chocolate malt in it.  I hope they'll release
it again.

Why not? It's not like you're going to be driving anywhere. If you can
crawl to the tent, what else do you need to do?

Thought the Old Chub was a good Scotch Ale, but the Dale's Pale Ale was
great, great stuff.  Would be nice to see more canned micros for all sorts
of reasons, but the prejudice against canned beers is probably going to
stick around similar to prejudices against wines with artificial corks.  
Established practice is hard to buck.

Sherwood Forest Brewers of MA. also can their beer.  What I've had from
them was unremarkable, though.

Beer like Old Chub could make beer drinkers radically rethink their
assumptions about canned beer.

I've also had Caldera Pale Ale in cans.  It's a little smoother than the
Oskar Blues, but retains a strong hop charachter.  I prefer it to the Oskar
Blues for this reason.
