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.

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.

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.

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

A nice every day pale that is worth buying a six pack at least once a month. Good summer beer with a nice hop flavor that remains inspite of filtration.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
