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.

574deadzone (1092) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottled May 15, 2014 (nice). Pours a clear darker gold with a thick beige head that settles to a thick ring and film, leaving lots of hanging, dripping soapy lace. Nose involves some toffee malt notes, subtle floral and spicy hops, and some darker bread character. Fairly sweet, quite bitter. Medium bodied, softer carb, a bit oily, with a bready doughy crisp bitter finish. Well made, drinkable brew. Easygoing, yet has some substance to it.

Bottle from bhensonb. Pours dark amber with a nice off-white head and a bread and toffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with moderate hop bitterness. Refreshing and easy to drink.

cfrancis (2515) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
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.

Johncmug (9) - USA - MAR 4, 2014 does not count
Very tasty. The maltyness stands out but there is plenty of hops for the pale ale palette. This wonít 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

Stevesie (329) - - FEB 22, 2014
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.
