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.

Beaver (1488) - 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 (30977) - 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.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Orange colored, foamy off-white head. Sweet and somewhat cloying aroma of fruit and hops with tones of asparagus (!) Also asparagus in the flavor with little hops and tones of soil (!!) Thin body and finish. What the hell went wrong with this one Great Divide?!?

madsberg (10888) - SÝborg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2004
Bottled: Light amber coloured. Light beige head. Very malty aroma. Some sweetness and fruit is there. Buttery and sweet in the flavour. Is ligth hopped which leads into a light bitterness in the end. An average beer, thats not offending anyone. Even great brewers makes beers, that are less than divine.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Some hops and aspargus(!) in the nose. Golden body, small white head. It also tastes of asaprgus and dirt. Bad one...

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Nice Light reddish color. Light hop notes in the aroma more of a malty nose. Taste has marginal hop flavor, a light buttery malt base stays until the end. Slightly bitter and somewhat clean. An uninspiring beer.

Tíainít bad but ainít nuffin to git all excited about. Would drink it if it was free. Might think that comment is completely dissmissive, but if you were to find that I routinely turn down crappy free beers you will see itís not. A bit thin and all, but okay.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Tap (At a sports bar of all places): Golden hue with nice long lasting head and above average lace. The aroma is mildly hoppy with some pine leaf and grapefruit notes on top of a subdued roasted bready malts. Light apple and pear notes too. The taste is clean and simple, not complex but sure is enough there to satisfy. Smooth bitter finish kept me interested. The feel is lively, clean and crisp. What you would expect from an Pale Ale. A hybrid between an American and English styled Pale Ale. Yummy and refreshing. Now, what to do with that bottle already in my frig...drink it I guess.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - NOV 10, 2004
Honey colored body with abundant bubblage. Foam head builds to a massive stiff peak. Even when poured gently it still takes up 75% of the glass. Smell is powerfully strong, roasted/sweet hops. Taste is watery hops with butter, dough and roasted malts. Nowhere near as good as smell. Some tart acidic citric flavors, nothing else really.
