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.

Pours a hazy gold. Not a lot on the nose that I could smell. Tastes good...a fair amount of yeast flavor. It doesnít taste like any pale that Iíve had before. This is a fine beer...not very exciting though.

pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head that quickly diminishes...smells of malt and citrus. light body with less bitterness than expected and pretty weak flavors of malty sweetness, even a bit metallic taste. dry finish...overall not a great beer.

12 oz. bottle. I was surpised to see this listed as an English pale ale. I thought it was an APA for sure. Pours super clear copper with 1 cm. white head. Falls to a cover of substantial foam that slowly disappears as you enjoy the beer. little lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty with a little bit of citrusy hops. Carmelly malts. Flavor is very nicely balanced. Initial impression says this is one of the best Pale Ales Iíve had. Slightly bitter up front. Solid amt. of good malts in the middle. Not really carmelly, but sort of - crystal malts maybe? Not real sweet. Then some piney like hop flavors and a nice, sharp, but not too dry finish. Palate is perfect for a pale ale. Medium, but a good amt. of carbonation and bitterness to lighten it up a bit. Overall a top notch pale ale. Super well balanced, solid malts, not overly hoppy or bitter, but enough so to make is a pale ale. Easily drinkable. Iíve had many before and I will have many more.

This is a malt forward, more English style pale with an assertive hop presence. A very pine like resin flavor seems to dominate through the aroma, but biscuit, caramel and slight toffee flavors fight through upon tasting. Sight fruity, plum like esters finish complement throughout. Clean, creamy finish with light citrus hops.

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.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2005
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.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2006
A good balance of malt and hops. Crisp, malty and a bit biter. Nothing unusual, just a good example of a traditional pale ale.

MrEcted1 (144) - Wheat Ridge, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2006
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.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - JAN 19, 2007
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.
