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.

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.

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2003
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.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2003
Nice color, a typical pale ale not complex but very straight forward. The citrus hop flavor was not overwhelming but within style.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 1, 2003
Decent aroma and a nice amber color. Typical "average" beer and like many others I've had from the region: quite watery and lacking and depth. A decent beer to drink with dinner but nothing to speak highly of.

tkaufman (128) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Poured a nice amber with a quickly dissipating head. Very little esters in the aroma, mostly straight pacific northwest hops. Flavor was well balanced but not really complex in the least. A decent beer with little exciting going on.

Ernest (7322) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel, cookie), moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot, resin), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. As with most of the GD lineup, raw doughy yeast is obvious in the nose. There’s a bit too much acidity and yeasty twang in the flavor profile to be truly enjoyable.
