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.

pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head that quickly diminishes...smells of malt and citrus. light body with less bitterness than expected and pretty weak flavors of malty sweetness, even a bit metallic taste. dry finish...overall not a great beer.

Nice hoppy, malt aroma. Good balance of hops throughout, especially for the style. One of my favorite session brews.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2003
Amber color with a fleeting off white head. Woody pine aroma. Old grapefruit and pine flavors with a touch of malt. Lacks malt and balance.

Suttree (6070) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Orange and copper, smallish white head. Smoky, fruit caramel aroma. The flavor is like, I dunno, a water craker with cracked pepper. Biscuit and black pepper, maybe. Finishes with an alomst salty flavor.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Kind of a bland APA in my opinion. Clear copperish golden colored with a slim head and little lacing. Medium hop aroma and a bit sweet smelling. Flavor is slightly bitter and has a metallic taste to it. A bit watery. Medium body. Not a bad beer just nothing really impressive.

Nice head and okay foam and good lace. Beautiful light copper color. Crisp hops and a bit on the bitter side, but refreshing. More hops than I like but I know that others would like it.

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 (5674) - 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.

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.
