COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Great Divide’s Brigid’s Porter is so unbelievable, I tend to favor whatever they produce, but this one’s just so-so. Spicy in a big way, the black pepper notes come on strong. Otherwise, a predictable APA.

See my notes on their Arapahoe Amber. To me, this is virtually the same beer, with some random peppery hops thrown in. For some reason, this brewery’s beers just don’t agree with me.

Light malt flavor noticable in the beginning with a very strong hoppy taste and finish. Excellent.

Well, unlike others, I got an amazing head on this beer! Next time I will pour it differently. This beer formed a large, sudsy almost float style head that left some lace after it subsided. It was a cloudy dark gold color with some sediment present. There was a heavy amount of carbonation. The aroma was of hops, citrus and malt. It had a flavor of hops, rather oily. Also some light caramel malt present. The finish was a bit tangy no doubt due to the heavy carbonation. Not a bad pale ale.

Visiting CO and Sunday i found out about the 3.2 ABW law. Went to a supermarket in hopes of finding something other than watered down 3.2 bud/coors etc (which seems to be the only beer you can buy on a Sunday here) - and found the lower ABV version of this beer. That said - it was not bad, yet nothing special either, but i may be tempted to try the 5.6 version if i find it in a single or visit the brewery to compare.

This pale ale is very good...it embodies everything that a pale ale should be...hoppy smell and color, light malt in the taste, crisp good. There was nothing about this beer that distinguished it though....very representative of the style.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 23, 2002
Pours clear orange from the bottle. The big white head is dense, tight, and creamy with stellar lacing. The light nose is citrus, spruce, flowers, and earth. The hoppy flavor is pleasing and balanced with a nice long finish. The meduim dry body has lively carbonation and a very clean feel to the finish. Very well done.

An interesting pale ale. It had tons of flavor, a bit nutty at times. Mouch more flavorful than any plae ale i have had. Almost a bit heavy for a pale. It’s tough to drink more than 2 or 3.

Nice ale. Good head that stays throughout the experience. Nice color. Dominant hop flavor that goes down nicely. Buy again.
