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.

I was surprised by this pale ale. It came across more as an amber than a pale. It was a light amber body and smelled like a red too.

First Great Divide beer. Dark copper color. Pale Ales are my favorite. Very nice, very hoppy, very smooth. Definitely an English Pale Ale. Lives up to its description. Great Divide is off to a great start with me.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 English style Pale Ale. Pours a nice clear amber with a quickly fading head. There’s caramel malt and a hint of biscuits in the nose. Taste is of toasty and caramel malts with notes of citrus and nuttiness. Hops are present but not aggressive. Pretty sweet with a very slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Solid brew.

Standard Colorado pale ale. Aptly named, represents a large majority of beer in the Denver area.

Pours copper colored with a thin white head. Moderate hop aroma. I smelled a hint of cinnamon and light fruit. Bitter finish. Okay.

Dark amber body under a frothy beige head. Aroma is a bit hoppy and a bit malty but neither to any substantial degree. Medium to light bodied. Not bad cold on a hot day or with food but not one to savor alone. Great Divide makes much better stuff than this.

Bottled 2-3 months ago. Pours amber with modest head, smell is floral hop. Tastes smooth, fairly dry, light malt, nice citrusy hops in balance. I would have no problem drinking a bunch of this :-) Not a powerhouse but a nice beer with just enough character to be interesting without being too sweet or blowing out your hop-buds.

Visited the brewery in Denver and had a great time with Bernie, one of the brewers. Nothing like a great friendly brewery! This was dark amber with a beautiful head. Nicely hopped and lightly malty for a good balance. Good American Pale.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 Wow, pours a prismatic goldenrod color, but since I have trouble discerning color, lets just say it has the color of orgasmic inferno. Let’s hope this good opinion proceeds. Decent aroma, lot’s of hops, kind of smells like cotton candy actually. Mmmm,mmm! Great great great taste, I dare say this is the best (or ranks among the best) pale ales I have ever tried! And to think I got this for free during a promotional drive at my local beer retailer. Fantastic! Nothing wrong with this at all!

Crystal clear, light copper body topped by a small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, floral, caramel, light grapefruit. Taste is mild sweet, earthy/floral, caramel, dough, finishing mild-intensity grapefruit. Light-medium body. Nice, easy-drinking beer.
