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.

Visiting CO and Sunday i found out about the 3.2 ABW law. Went to a supermarket in hopes of finding something other than watered down 3.2 bud/coors etc (which seems to be the only beer you can buy on a Sunday here) - and found the lower ABV version of this beer. That said - it was not bad, yet nothing special either, but i may be tempted to try the 5.6 version if i find it in a single or visit the brewery to compare.

Decent aroma and a nice amber color. Typical "average" beer and like many others I've had from the region: quite watery and lacking and depth. A decent beer to drink with dinner but nothing to speak highly of.

Bottle - Pours a copper-red color with a thin whitish head. Aroma is of spicy hops and a mild amount of malt. Flavor is just about all hops and bitterness. Finish is bitter with a slight amount of sweetness at th end.

This starts off with a sparkling clear body of brilliant copper under a large rocky off white head. Light perfume in the hops aroma. The flavor started sour turning an astringent bitter that ended thin and chalky. Very disappointing.

Much heavier malt profile than most american p.a.ís. Almost tinny. Dark straw color. Definitely a British slant on the pale ale. Not really for me. I enjoy the floral aspect which I did not find much of.

lotsa carbonation. Okay head. A bit watery and not really a whole lot of flavor to speak of. Pretty average and not much better than your mainstream domestic offerings.

This definitely reminds me of a number of pints I had in England, although it would obviously be on the hoppier side. It poured amber/bronze with a good size cream-white head. The first whiff of aroma was definitely orange, then caramel and a strong wet tea leaves note. Some alcohol is present, too, giving it a touch of effevescence. The flavors arenít as well rounded as the aromas, giving off a strong iced tea fusion with a somewhat murky nut edge. A bit of the piney hops (I think I agree with another person who identified it as more spruce than pine...well picked up!) and a moderate toasted flavor carries on with a bitterness than hangs on the mid-back of my tongue. Moderately oily and gently sticky malt palate, modified by that bitterness. Iíve been really pleased with Great Divide lately in the sense that theyíre bringing some good beers into Texas, and their bigger beers are interesting and fun, though Iím still finding that they donít always appeal to the purely hedonistic taste-test. Cíest la vie, it is still a beer worth trying even if it doesnít win huge raves from me.

Clear, dark amber pour with a loose, foamy white head. Left quickly but comes back with a swirl or two. Piney, floral, somewhat caramel like aroma. Flavor is minimal...mild caramel flavor, and grassy. Piney and peppery on the finish, with, what I would describe as, dirt or clay flavors as well. It doesnít detract that much but is noticeable. At least I can say I had it.
