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.

A fine example of a great English style ale. Perfect blend of hops and malt with the quintessential steely hard water taste and aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

airrick2003 (443) - Louisiana, USA - AUG 23, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Appearance: rich darker gold color, almost amber, pours with a medium sized beige head, it’s moderately dense Aroma: intense grain, smells like my malt bag when I brew, pretty amazing, oats, can’t smell it enough Taste: very grainy, some hints of coffee, wheat, also has an assertive hop backbone that compliments the grain very well, oats Palate: slightly below average carbonation, bitter aftertaste, medium mouthfeel, Overall: this is a beer that tastes just like my home brewing malt cheese bag, it’s delicious, really wish we got great divide here, they named it pale ale but it’s head and shoulders better than other malt front beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
