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 (12627) - 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.

thewolf (11991) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Ølkonsortiet, Aalborg. Pours a deep golden with a big creamy-ish white head. Aroma is mildly sweet hoppy. Some caramel and slight fruity hops. Lively mouthfeel. Flavour has a nice hoppyness, slight pale-ish malty sweetness behind it. Not that terribly dry. A very competent brew, but a little underwhelming.
