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.

madsberg (11360) - Søborg, 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.

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.

T’ain’t bad but ain’t 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 it’s not. A bit thin and all, but okay.

BBB63 (6557) - 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.

Floral aroma, pours to a carmel color with little head. Creamy mouthfeel, slightly hoppy. Not much finish.

Terminus (3545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 3, 2004
UPDATED: APR 11, 2005 Rerate-tap. i boosted the flavors here from a fresh tap version i had at the brewery. It has a good EKG hop note to it and the body is well rounded. 12 oz bottle-pours a nice copper hue with mild carbonation and little head retention. light floral, piney, caramel malt aroma. flavors are sugary with hops in the mid palate. short and tame finish, more like a mild ale/cask esb. slightly weak body. a sup-par beer from a very good brewer.

Gold amber, small head. Slightly less familiar hop aroma. Nice medium body, good maltiness, sharp hops.
