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.

Christian (11056) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2008
Light copper beer with a a lasting white head. Hops dominate the aroma, with citrus and floral and fruity notes, with a bit of bisquit and other malt notes. Semi-sweet flavour with pretty high bitterness, and a lasting hoppy aftertaste. I’d say it falls somewhere between the British and American pale ale in style.

bhensonb (10938) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle provided by Liz. Pours clear bright copper with a slight, transient beige head. Aroma is floral with slightly roasty malt. Med body or nearly. Flavor starts roasty malt followed by a low dose of mostly floral hop. It’s bitter and finishing towards dry. Drinking good.

madsberg (10144) - 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.
