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.

Crash_the_dog (117) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - APR 11, 2013
Really well crafted beer, but with very malty overtones true to the English model. I enjoyed it, but the malt flavor didn't hit my sweet spot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle provided by Liz. Pours clear bright copper with a slight, transient beige head. Aroma is floral with slightly roasty malt. Med body or nearly. Flavor starts roasty malt followed by a low dose of mostly floral hop. It’s bitter and finishing towards dry. Drinking good.

cfrancis (2156) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours light gold with a huge foaming white pillowy head. Aroma is bready malts and some floral hops. Also some stale woody earthy notes. Taste is a bit stale, probably my fault for having something a bit dated. Floral notes and bready malts.

Johncmug (8) - USA - MAR 4, 2014 does not count
Very tasty. The maltyness stands out but there is plenty of hops for the pale ale palette. This won’t knock your socks off but a good all around, every day beer.

Bottle from Ty. Nose is dry as well as taste. Some malt feel to balance hop bitterness. Not much sweetness. Good with spicy food. ---Rated via my mouth

Stevesie (294) - - FEB 22, 2014
From bottle. Pours a sort of unremarkable copper color with some thin white head and significant lacing. Nose is somewhat floral and slightly skunky. Smooth, nice balance of hops and malt. Slightly astringent finish. Easy to drink. Good representation of the style.

ajnepple (1674) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2014
12 oz bottled 3 weeks ago from Mile High Wine & Spirits into a pint glass. Nice looking amber and clear appearance with a lasting white head and light lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, English hops, floral notes, toffee, bread and caramel. Fairly malty flavor, similar to the aroma, with moderate earthy bitterness. Medium body, pretty crisp with a smooth, clean finish. Better than I remember, probably just fresher.

RedSox2004 (1139) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Clear copper amber with an off-white head and nice lace. Hop-forward aroma with generous citrus and pine atop a solid caramel malt foundation. Hop bitterness is prominent, but nicely balanced by the malt sweetness. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisply bitter finish.
