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.

Dark brassy color with a standard pale ale fragrance. Hoppy yet sweet at the same time. Clean finish with little aftertaste. Not bad at all.

Pours a golden amber with a bit of white head. Aroma is bread malts, some yeast, a hint of caramel sweetness, and herbal hops. Lots of yeast in the taste, which is actually a welcome deviation from what Iíve encountered recently; malts and hops are well balanced. Not much sweetness -- malts are quite bready/yeasty (and, sadly, more like an amateur baker than a real pro), but the herbal (and a little bit grapefruity) hops provide a nice balance. Finish lingers in a subtle way -- not a bad "sitting around" beer.

A good balance of malt and hops. Crisp, malty and a bit biter. Nothing unusual, just a good example of a traditional pale ale.

Pours a nice amber color. I believe that this beer is slightly underrated, especially given the style (APA). Very crisp and refreshing. Good bit of hoppiness, and nice caramel malts in perfect balance. For the style I believe that this is an above average APA. Nothing to drool over, but very nice.

This is a nice example of an english style IPA. Has all those grapefruit and earthy hop qualities you want and some quality malt body to back it all up. A nice looking beer too.

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.

Dark Amber/copper color. Wonderful hop aroma. Nice and refreshing -- good hop presence, but not nearly as much as say, SNPA, Thick head that stays with the beer for most of the glass -- nice lacing. Overall very good, great with a barbecue, but pales in comparison to SNPA.

Bottle. Golden with a medium off-white head. Scant aroma of citrus hops. A little thin on the palate, but otherwise itís a decent pale ale.

Pretty good pale ale, sharp hops with a good bite. Light body and fades fairly fast on the palate.

I poured this chilled from a bottle. There is virtually no head and little aroma. Mostly that of coriander seeds, pleasant but slight. A lovely golden color golden, crystal clear with delicate carbonation. It really quit gorgeous except for the lack of head. The flavor is nice surprise, Its well balanced; slight sweet out of gate followed immediately by a pleasant bitterness. The mouth feel is a little light but still nice and it has a nice finish. I think the new recipe worth trying.
