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.

Clearish amber color with a semi-thick white head. Smells like an APA and the flavor is of a very tasty hop ingredient. It’s not as bitter as some, but not weak either.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 12oz bottle from a variety pack... not too bad. Better then expected. poured a nice golden/copper color with great aroma(what beer doesn’t pour and smell good). very nice taste with no chalky aftertaste that you get with some pale ales... will drink and recommend!!!

Sampled at Mondial de la Biere. Nice earthy hops, biscuity malt flavor. Decent for a pale ale but not my favorite.

Denver Pale Ale? Well, it did make me feel a bit like John F’n Elway, and that’s not a good thing, or is it? Tasted like a hazy schwag (yes, THAT kind of schwag) which was nice but not really what I expected out of this. Then again, I didn’t know quite what to expect out of a Denver pale ale. I wouldn’t recommend it, try Great Divide’s Hercules and you won’t be disappointed, or for regular pale ales, Summit Extra Pale Ale or Three Floyd’s Alpha King should do you about right.

Pours a clear light brown. Definitively an English style pale ale, so if your coming for huge hop flavor you'll be disappointed. That being said, it's a good, well done English PA. Smooth, slightly sweet, with a nice balance of hop bitterness at the end. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad, but not great. There is a decent amount of malt an hop flavor. The finish was pretty good. I will have to try it again.

I think deep down I just like APA more than EPA. It has a strong malt backbone. The aroma is is honey and little hop input. Appeance is a light amber with white head. Taste is honey and caramel with a little bitterness. Palate is very rich and creamy. Decent enough brew but not my cup of tea.

Prior to DPA, I had two hearted ale, which has a picture of a fish on the label. Fortuntatleyh two hearted ale tasted great. Unfortunately, Denver Pale ale actually tasted like a fish. The worst part is, this is my sixth beer, at which point I am usually generous..

Pours orange with a big white head, pillowy and uneven. Good lacing. Nose is malt and pine. Taste is caramel, malt, toffee, and grapefruit, with hop bitterness in the finish. Smooth and crisp. Overall, good stuff.
