3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light gold with a huge foaming white pillowy head. Aroma is bready malts and some floral hops. Also some stale woody earthy notes. Taste is a bit stale, probably my fault for having something a bit dated. Floral notes and bready malts.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
