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.

Prior to DPA, I had two hearted ale, which has a picture of a fish on the label. Fortuntatleyh two hearted ale tasted great. Unfortunately, Denver Pale ale actually tasted like a fish. The worst part is, this is my sixth beer, at which point I am usually generous..

The primary aroma is hops, but there is also metal. This is very smooth, and there is a sweet hop flavor.

Dull amber... extremely large off-white head. Stemmy and grassy hops take charge in the aroma. A bit of caramelly malt too. Its kind of the same in the flavor as well. A bit dry with flowery hop flavor. Stale caramel. Watery, but good amount of flavor. Decent beer overall.

Clear, dark amber pour with a loose, foamy white head. Left quickly but comes back with a swirl or two. Piney, floral, somewhat caramel like aroma. Flavor is minimal...mild caramel flavor, and grassy. Piney and peppery on the finish, with, what I would describe as, dirt or clay flavors as well. It doesn’t detract that much but is noticeable. At least I can say I had it.

The bottle I had seemed supsiciously old, as the head was monstrous and there was an annoying sour/alcohol after taste. The characteristics that were present were good - floral in the nose and some butter/caramel body. Will rerate when I can get it fresher.

Sour smell and taste with slight hoppy taste, malty middle, possibly bad bottle.

This is number 100. Solid, malty PA with a nice bitter hoppy finish. Grassy hops are strongly apparent. Great finish on an overall mediocre beer.

thanks to eric from t.t.b. for this bonus brew in our trade.poured a murky orange with a white head that stuck around after the pour.the head even left nice lacing after some of it settled.i got a blend of piney hops,earth,and malts in the aroma.the flavor was all the the aromas,but had a little hidden sour note.i m sot sure if this is skunked,but something does not seem right.still overall its not to bad.re-rate note:this was bottled 03/04.maybe it was past its prime?

Yeah its okay. Not nearly as bold as some of their other stuff. Light hops in the nose and taste, quite mellow. Average.

Amber in colour with a small head. Aroma is sweet and floral hopped. I was expecting an american pale, but as stated by others, this is more of an english style.
