DPA has risen to become one of the most award-winning English-style pale ales in the world. Sporting a brilliant copper hue and an assertive floral hop aroma, DPA is known for its smooth, malty middle, which is expertly complemented with hearty and complex hop flavor. DPA's extraordinary hop finish is marked by crisp yet moderate hop bitterness.

This dark copper beer has a very nice citrusy hop aroma and flavor the doesn't totally obscure the malt character. A good solid pale ale.

jgb9348 (5171) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2003
Clear light amber colour with a very thin white head. Smells of citrusey hops and subtle malt dominate the smell. Very watery tasting leaving a bit of malt background with a touch of hops. About 30 seconds into the taste leaves even less of a flavour with a bit of malt to show for the beer. The colour suggested a not-so-great beer, but the smell made me re-think that conjecture. Finally, the taste made me really believe that this wasn't a good beer. The aftertate was as short and as subtle as can be, and had basically no 'good' characteristics. Overall, not a great beer for this style or any other for that matter. I bought it at a Denver supermarket, and the beer was classfied as having under a 3.2% Alcohol by weight, which is a must for a Colorado store (non liqour-oriented) evidently. This could have been part of the problem, but it was very disapointing. If you are out here for a short trip, definately skip this one and move to better ones from the area! I bought this 12 ounce bottle at Safeway in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Nice looking beer: frothy head on a clear dark amber. . . nicely hopped aroma with plenty of grapefruit. Flavour is a bit thin; watery even, some assemblence of malt on the tongue, but mostly just some thin hop flavours. Easy drinking on a hot day, but not one of the better APA's.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2003
Nice amber color,small head that faded pretty fast.Good hoppy aroma with a nice hop taste with a mild malt presence and citrus as well.a bit on the biting side but not to terrible the after taste is bitter hops with a some what thin feel,not a bad brew IMO well worth having 5 more to enjoy later.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2003
A tremendous american pale ale that is at the same time hoppy (american hops) and rich and smooth at the same time. It has a distinctive vanilla flavour with a smooth, almost velvetty finish. The aroma is hugely of cascade hops, and clean. The flavour varies with time but a huge cascade presence is undeniniable. A vanilla flavour binds the finsish very well. Very hoppy and pleasant and smooth.

Citrus hops most of the way through. Similar to SNPA except not as bitter. Nice fruity finish compliments the citrus hops. Very good beer, great effort.

weisinator (67) - USA - MAY 16, 2003
Thin head, not much lacing, nice copper color. Strong citrus note from the hops. Very bitter. The flavor and aroma crawl up your nose even after you put down the glass. The taste lingered to tease me again later in the day. I enjoyed every sip of this beer. Made my layover at the Denver airport that much better.

Nice color, a typical pale ale not complex but very straight forward. The citrus hop flavor was not overwhelming but within style.
