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.

This has an amber pour, but there is not a lot of flavor, mainly bread and gains and a little off flavor. I’ll try again and re-rate, not sure about the bar where I got it.

Amber color. No head. Crisp taste. Hints of the hops. Fleeting taste but it's refreshing. Tap at My Brother's Bar in Denver. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2013 bottle to a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Pours a light copper color with a fizzy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is bready and slightly earthy/musty with some floral hops and a little raisin. Taste follows nose with the bread at the front followed by a little sweetness and ending with the floral bitterness. Medium, semi-dry mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (652) - Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass, with a big fluffy white head with good retention and great lacing. Sweet caramel and bready aroma with just a faint hint of floral hops, which may be because the bottle was 6 months old. Taste is sweet at first with some caramel and honey and biscuit flavors. Some graininess that transitions to a moderate herbal than floral bitterness. Finishes with a light lingering bitterness but semi dry. Mouthfeel is creamy with a medium/full body and medium carbonation. Not bad but flavors were a bit simple and segregated. May have been because of the age of the bottle.

sonnycheeba (3295) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Tap. Pours amber with creamy white head. Aroma is cereal and cookie malts, floral hops, and some fig. Flavor is bready malts and smooth hop bitterness with light floral and fruit notes; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

snoworsummer (1858) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle. Tastes malty and bready, with hints of raisin and molasses. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like malt and molasses.

wisdomsolo (388) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Pours a bright orange. The flavor is missing the punch of normal IPAs and suffers because of it. The aroma is negligible. This is a soon to be forgotten IPA.

Lupulucid (187) - - JUL 15, 2013
Although sweetness is relatively restrained, hints of honey and orange blossom complement hops and yeast to deliver complexity even if intensity is a bit lacking.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 13, 2013
On tap at Hillbilly Po Boy’s. Pours a clear rich gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma is mainly musty sweet grains with a hint of grassy hops. Flavor has stronger musty grass hops that combine with notes of straw and grains.

On tap. Pours gold w low white head. Nose is sweet light grains w a grass hop cutting through. Taste has that same balance- drinkable and refreshing on this 93 degree day
