4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear, light orange with a good-sized head. Floral hops with a bit of spice and some caramel malt character on the nose as well. Biscuit and toffee. Nice medium-high carbonation. Grassy, bitter finish. A very nice pale, and Iím not the biggest fan of most.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally rated on 12/9/08. DPA pours a nice looking slightly cloudy amberish body with small floaters aplenty, a huge off white cap left decent lace. Slight, but nice hop aroma, the taste was of sweet malts, a little pine with a dry mildly bitter finish, however there was a strange taste of plastic in the initial sips that was a turn off. The batch i drank was 8 months old, maybe it was a little past its prime, but it should hold up better than that. Anyway i will give it another try in the future.

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.

From a variety 12-pack old. I like English Pale Ales and this is an OK one. Some biscuit malt, but not as much as Iíd like. The hops arenít American but maybe not EKGs either. Although it isnít great, I kind of regret that theyíre re-designing at as ...one....more...American Pale Ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed on tap in sampler form at Great Divide barrel room in Denver, CO. Appearance is light clean gold with a robust white head. Aroma is mostly yeast with a bit of faint light malt. Taste is pretty good. Fresh and clean. Definitely sessionable, but not after drinking a bunch of other beers. Would probably have again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy golden orange, ample tan head, quite frothy. Head really prevents a lot of the nose from coming through. Some pine, maybe some hay. Light bitterness, some amount of sweetness. Lightish body, some oiliness. Fine.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
An earthy pine aroma. Deep burned copper body topped with a healthy off-white head about two fingers thick.The head clings to the glass like it should. A firm bitterness but is balanced with nutty malt character to smooth it out. I sense hints of caramel sweetness in the background.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a solid pale ale, not really sure how English it is though. ITís got a nice orange color and a small, foamy head. Its nose is mildy hopp and floral, pleasant but nothing that stands out in a crowd. Some slight toasty malt sweetness helps bring out some citrus character. This is maybe more malty than most pale ales made in the US but it is a nice, drinkable beer regardless.
