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.

The color of this beer is dark orange with a medium white head, and the aroma blends caramel and nutty malts with some herbal hops. The taste is extremely interesting and unique due to the balance on the tongue between the slight sourness and sweetness with the mild bitterness that comes from the hops, but this flavor subsides quickly into the nutty finish, all of which is complemented by the soft carbonation, medium body, and slick texture.

Bottled 01FEB12 Pours amber with a finger of whipped creamy foam. This falls to a quilt of the same. Some pine, citrus and a hint of body odor on the nose, nothing remarkable. Taste is malty with a dominant english and oxidized character. Medium body with moderate carb. Decent for drinking, nothing to send home about. Serving type: bottle 03-06-2012

Nate (3800) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2013
On tap at 3R6P. Not much of an aroma to this, with just a little bit of hop character. Medium amber with light haze, toped with thin white creamy lacing head. Medium body with heavy carbonation. Starts with light sweetness and carbonic acidity. Nice hop profile with decent hop flavor and bitterness throughout. Dry medium bitter finish with beany hop after.

There really isn't much to it. No hops, little malts. Least favorite of the Grest Divide line. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This English style ale is similar to most IPA ales in terms of its hop dominance. However, the golden color and nice head speak of the fine malt flavoring, which is nicely balanced with the hops. It leaves a refreshing taste on the palate, with just a shade of cloyness.

Bottle into shaker. An enormous amount of head. Took over 15 minutes to pour the entire beer in the glass and still retained tons of carbonation. I think something is amiss here. Anyhow, orange cloudy color and did I mention tons of carbonation? Sweet aromas, citrus, honey, light spices. Taste is bitter and metallic and the palate is so saturated with carbonation, it’s hard to tell anything else. It’s like drinking alka-seltzer. Maybe I got a bad one. Bottled on Jun 03, 2013.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Grassy, floral, hoppy, earthy aromas. Bread, bitter, hoppy, grassy flavors. Somewhat boring pale ale.

10/14/2010. On tap at the brewery. Amber color with a white head. Aromas of fresh hops, malt, caramel and pine. Fruity flavors with a good hop bitterness towards the end.

More powerful than I would’ve expected from an English style, but coming from Great Divide, it makes more sense. Malty body, lots of bread and caramel. Nice hoppy beginning.
