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.

Tap at B-52 1/9/05 amber pour, thick white head. Jazzy, piney aroma. Smooth body and carbonation. Balance between the slightly carmely malt and the piney, crisp hops is very nice. Clean beer.

Caramel, light hoppy aroma.Creamy white head that was nicely lasting with excellent lacing. Color was orange / amber slightly hazy.Finish and flavor a bit bland for an I.P.A. Overall not bad for a bottled I.P.A.

thedm (4973) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 2, 2005
This bottled brew made in Oct of 03 poured a unnoted head size of all foam made up of finely sized long lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of hops. Its mouth feel is initially tingly bubbly and hoppy that disappears in the finish. Its flavor contained strong initial hoppy notes and soon fades into finish.

Bottled 10.03. Poured a huge frothy off-white head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, minimal carbonation, and an orange brown hue. Aroma was malty, sweet and hoppy. Flavor was sweet, malty, hoppy and some bitterness. Tingly and somewhat dry mouthfeel.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Fairly large fluffy head. Malty sweet aroma. Taste is mainly sweet with a bit of hops in the end. A pretty good beer, just certainly nothing special. Seemed a bit thin.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Aroma is a little strange, smells kinda like an attic, a little hoppy too. Golden color. Solid mouthfeel. Taste is mainly bitter hops. A solid pale, but nothing extraordinary.

DocLock (8086) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Thanks to BBB63 for this one. Pours deep straw/amber with a nice head and very good lacing. Aroma of malt, hopcit, florals, slight spice and fruit. Tastes hoppy, woth some finishing fruit and florals. Pretty good balance and a nice complexity. Not bad.

Beaver (1363) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Pours a slightly hazy copper-orange with a monstrous fluffy off-white head that retains well and shows some lacing.

Its aroma is biscuity caramel malt and grassy floral hops with some citrus and pepper.

The flavor is sweet (almost candy-like) caramel malts, with some biscuit and a mild bitter finish. The bitterness in the aftertaste and finish comes out a little more as it warms. A little on the thin side.

Overall, a little too sweet for me, although it got better as it warmed. Not much of the classic English PA hoppiness.

Ungstrup (29950) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2004
An amber beer with a small disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with some notes of alcohol. While the flavor is sweet malty with a hoppy end. But the body is thin.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 21, 2004
In the bottle. Rich golden to light amber color. Decent head of relatively standard duration. Cedary pine-like hop aroma with yeasty bread mixed in for good measure. Average hop content of a variety I canít put my finger on. Seems stronger in alcohol than 5%. An OK session beer that does not overwhelm.
