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.

Drake (11576) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 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.

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.

Dogbrick (11323) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Rerate 12/14/05: The bottled version of this beer agrees with me a litte more. Copper color with a thick and fluffy off-white head. Thick sheets of lacing too. Grassy, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied and with a decent floral hops character, as well as a fair amount of malt. The finish is moderately hoppy. Straightforward and pretty enjoyable.

11/12/02 (2.4): Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Light amber color with minute head. Hops aroma that was difficult to detect. This seemed watered-down and nothing special to me. I like more hops in my APAs.

Sammy (11069) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2005
Aroma of Very citrussy grapefruit, floral, piney, with carmel and malts. Juicy hop and fruity, with bitter aftertaste. Certainly not a lot of malting, more IPA and can pass as one. light golden yellow with a bit of froth. Understated carbonation.

daknole (10848) - 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.

hopscotch (10563) - 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.

Bottle. Sweet toffee malt aroma. Medium amber with small head. Mildly sweet caramel malt and moderate pine hops flavor - great tasting EPA, very nicely blended.

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.
