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.

A flat, low taste beer. Not much going on here. Flat start, flat finish and not a lot of flavor. Crisp enough though, not one of my favorites.

v64 (134) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Light, malty aroma, thin head, very white. Light copper in appearance. Flowery flavor, very light. Slight aftertaste of hops. Smooth, not very carbonated. Underwhelming for a pale ale, lacks that characteristic hoppy bite.

shackinetics (132) - Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2007
medium amber color, slightly hazy, minimal head. Smells nice - of hops and fruits/grapes... Well-balanced, but subdued taste for a pale ale. Pretty poor/light mouth feel and seemed to get considerably staler and boring as I finished it off.

ajwilliams (132) - , Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Sweet, golden honey pour. Straightforward hoppy and malty pale ale. Not too bad, I definitely enjoyed the half hour I had to wait while the ridiculous head subsided. I swear I ladled 15 oz of foam out of that glass. More and grosser foam than Duvel. Try it when you have a free afternoon.

tkaufman (129) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Poured a nice amber with a quickly dissipating head. Very little esters in the aroma, mostly straight pacific northwest hops. Flavor was well balanced but not really complex in the least. A decent beer with little exciting going on.

Livendadream (129) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle pours clear light copper in color. Nice thick off white head with tight bubbles. No lacing on glass. Fruity flowery smell with subtle malt like aroma. Sweet on the tongue finishing with a mellow bitterness. Medium body minimal hop flavor. Nice balanced beer, smooth very drinkable session ale. SIDE NOTE: this bottle had a date of 6/18/2012. 11 months since bottled. I did not notice this till it was halfway finished. Beer had that not so fresh taste and it lacked the full hop flavor. It still was decent. Im sure if this were fresh i would have rated it higher. If i ever get a hold of another i will re rate it.

larsam (127) - Southampton, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
Rated @ Stockholm beer festival. Amber with white head. Cascade is dominant in both aroma and flavour. The bitterness is not as strong as in many other beers from this brewery. Finishes dry and hoppy.

dbhenry (126) - El Paso, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2013
This English style ale is similar to most IPA ales in terms of its hop dominance. However, the golden color and nice head speak of the fine malt flavoring, which is nicely balanced with the hops. It leaves a refreshing taste on the palate, with just a shade of cloyness.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Light orange color with ample thick white head. Floral hops nose follows with similar floral hops flavor accompanied by light malt tones with a mildly skunky aftertaste.

Alcohol aroma. Moderate bitter, alcohol aftertaste. I don’t know why I like this beer, but I do.
