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.

Very tasty. The maltyness stands out but there is plenty of hops for the pale ale palette. This won’t knock your socks off but a good all around, every day beer.

Bottle from Ty. Nose is dry as well as taste. Some malt feel to balance hop bitterness. Not much sweetness. Good with spicy food. ---Rated via my mouth

From bottle. Pours a sort of unremarkable copper color with some thin white head and significant lacing. Nose is somewhat floral and slightly skunky. Smooth, nice balance of hops and malt. Slightly astringent finish. Easy to drink. Good representation of the style.

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2014
12 oz bottled 3 weeks ago from Mile High Wine & Spirits into a pint glass. Nice looking amber and clear appearance with a lasting white head and light lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, English hops, floral notes, toffee, bread and caramel. Fairly malty flavor, similar to the aroma, with moderate earthy bitterness. Medium body, pretty crisp with a smooth, clean finish. Better than I remember, probably just fresher.

RedSox2004 (1200) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Clear copper amber with an off-white head and nice lace. Hop-forward aroma with generous citrus and pine atop a solid caramel malt foundation. Hop bitterness is prominent, but nicely balanced by the malt sweetness. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisply bitter finish.

Fairly enjoyable. It had enough hops to let you know you’re drinking a pale ale, but doesn’t hit you upside the head with it. Didn’t really wow me in any specific area, but I’d drink it again if there were few other options. Here’s what it looked like: http://teamchug.com/denver-pale-ale-review/

Bottled on Nov 8, 2013 had it on Dec 27. Pours a copper color. Nice head. Smells of sweet, bready malts. Taste is mild sweetness and mild bitterness. Bitter finish. A good ale!

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 DPA packs quite a punch with its hops. They’re apparent from start to finish but their final impression is the most powerful. That bitter, long finish leaves quite the calling card. It also leaves you wanting more. DPA is a great pale ale from a reputable brewery.

Bottle to glass. Pours a copper color with medium white head. Nutty aroma blended with light malt and hops. Taste is smooth with caramel, spice and light hops. Interesting blend. Slight lacing of the glass as you drink. Well carbonated. Good beer overall, but not your typical pale ale.
