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.

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. Itís 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.

Iím not finding anything special here - nice flower of hops, but that is simply expected. Maybe a touch tame.

Big thick head with a ton of lace through the glass. Hops are evident but restrained. I donít quite get the citrus that other raters got. Sharp on the tongue for a nice palete.

Reddish gold in color, very carbonated head. Medium-bodied and medium hops. Flavor seems a little shallow and does not linger for long. In fairness, my sample was nine months old at the time. Not one of the better pale ales available from U.S. microbreweries. UPDATE: I had a fresh sample and what a difference. My original rating was five, but Iíve upgraded to a 16. Good flavor, lots of hops, probably Cascades. Delicious. What a difference a fresher sample makes!!

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2004 Nice citrusy notes with some pine and good doseage of toasted maltiness to balance. Decent.

A very complex Pale Ale. Has the right amount of bitterness and has very interesting aftertastes with hints of this and that. Liked this one! The Brewery is cool too.
