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.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 8, 2004
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.

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 aren’t 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. I’ve been really pleased with Great Divide lately in the sense that they’re bringing some good beers into Texas, and their bigger beers are interesting and fun, though I’m still finding that they don’t always appeal to the purely hedonistic taste-test. C’est la vie, it is still a beer worth trying even if it doesn’t win huge raves from me.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2005
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 doesn’t detract that much but is noticeable. At least I can say I had it.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Bottle: Pale copper color. Mild hoppy aroma with citrusy-floral notes. Clean tatse with a nice hoppy front and notes of toasted caramel malt in the finish. Crisp but overly bitter finish.

jercraigs (8153) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2005
Bottle. Orangey amber, massive white head. Slightly muted hoppy aroma. Flavour has bitter grapefruity citrus but not much malt to help it along. Touch of alcohol (astringency?) in the finish is not really appropriate. Average palate. Disappointing. Thanks for sharing Tupalev - he says the other bottle was better than this one. Durf. Will have to give it another shot if it comes around again.

Alcohol aroma. Moderate bitter, alcohol aftertaste. I don’t know why I like this beer, but I do.

Theis (13985) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle at home. Dark red/brown small white head. Aroma/taste Fresh hop (grass, pine), malt. Though the taste isn’t as fresh as the aroma. Aftertaste: Hop and almost chokloade bitterness.
