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.

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.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2005
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.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Pretty much an average American pale ale. Mostly overwhelming flower-hoppiness, maybe some malt in the middle as per the commercial description.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Clear copper/dark orange, thin off-white head. Piney, earthy hops aroma with toasty malts. Biscuity, toasty malt body with an adequate supply of piney, earthy hops. A bit buttery. Highly carbonated which isn’t optimal for a session beer like this one. Bitter finish. Decent, but a bit boring.

Bottle. Thanks to jeffc666 for this one! Reddened amber with a small tan head and lots of minute partciles suspended in it. Aroma is malty with honey notes and strong floral hops. Light spiciness in the nose as well. Taste is hoppy but laden with creamy malts and light spice. Some citrus coming through as well. Body is medium with moderate carbonation and a light lingering bitterness. Light dryness towards the end. Finish is more hops and creamy malts with light honey notes. Decent.
