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 (10602) - Sřborg, 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.

FatPhil (10253) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 14, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2009 Rating is average of 2 tastings - bottle and keg
355ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki , American Week 2007).
Typical unsophisticated US style overrelyance on hops to carry a beer. Unbalanced, lacking a full malty body, and instead being sticky and sweet. (4-3-5-3-12=2.7)
Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, American Weeks 2009)
Pleasant, gingery, hoppy. OK quaff. Sherbet finish, sweet palate. Nice. (6-4-7-3-13=3.3)

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2007
Delirium, Göteborg, bottle. Dark amber with a huge, creamy head. The aroma is hoppy, dry and grapefruit-like. The flavour has notes of citrus, mostly grapefruit, fruit and a touch of caramel. It’s rather dry and somewhat tart. 2389

daknole (10111) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Amber pour, medium white head. Aroma smells of an IPA, flavor is a mix of a pale ale and an IPA. Too bad the pale ale gets the better of the IPA. This is a great beer after a hot game of beach volleyball. Crisp and refreshing.

Tasted on tap at Great Divide Brewery in Denver, Colorado. Light, yellow-orange body with small head. Weak slightly hoppy aroma. Somewhat weak hoppy flavor. Pretty easy drinking.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Grape & Gourmet in Virginia Beach, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a thin head, good head retention and lacing. Aroma is floral hops, nuts, caramel and honey. Taste is bitter resinous hops with malty caramel notes. Medium bodied. Crisp and refreshing.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Bottle... Hazy, copper ale with a large, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Yeasty, citrusy aroma. Lightly bitter, acidic flavor with a pink grapefruit, lemony slap to the palate. Light to medium-bodied and mildly creamy with lively carbonation. Short, crisp, acidic finish. Not really malty or smooth. A bit too acidic. Will have to try another bottle some day to make sure this one isn’t off just a bit. Enjoyable. Refreshing.

Poured a medium and see through copper color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, flowers and citrus. Tastes of caramel and some hops. Thinner body.
