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.

Frank (3596) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2015
This is a solid pale ale, not really sure how English it is though. IT’s 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.

Straight from the bottle at a wedding reception. Fairly typical pale ale--medium body, good carbonation, floral hoppy finish but not too overpowering. Solid overall.

Bebum (564) - - JUL 18, 2015
Light amber, clear, persistent head. Earthy, intensely yeasty nose with a touch of ammonia. Medium body, moderate flavor, slightly astringent mouthfeel and finish, long palate. Very bitter, dry, refreshing acidity. Very hoppy as promised, Good as a thirst quencher, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eggraid101 (58) - Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. A good pale ale but a little uninteresting. Could use a touch of something. A nice beer but I'd reach for something a little cleaner or more hoppy, one way or the other ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GreatDane1632 (1124) - Alabama, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 7 Apr 2012 -- From the bottle while in Pueblo at IFS. A very nice English Pale ale. Not a hop bomb like most American versions but a pleasure to consume.

Vestlake (250) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2015 Aroma and taste are mildly hoppy, with a little sweet malt in the background. Pretty good.

Koskela (409) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 21, 2015
I get a sweet aroma and slight hop from this orangy brew with yeast particles floating around. The taste is sweetness and bitterness battling for dominance through out this medium bodied beer. The aftertaste is sweetish an pleasantly bitter. A good balance.
