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.

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.

Denver Pale Ale? Well, it did make me feel a bit like John F’n Elway, and that’s not a good thing, or is it? Tasted like a hazy schwag (yes, THAT kind of schwag) which was nice but not really what I expected out of this. Then again, I didn’t know quite what to expect out of a Denver pale ale. I wouldn’t recommend it, try Great Divide’s Hercules and you won’t be disappointed, or for regular pale ales, Summit Extra Pale Ale or Three Floyd’s Alpha King should do you about right.

Not bad. Light coppery amber with a tiny white head. Nice floral hop nose, sweet and light English-style maltiness with a moderately bitter hop finish. Good, but not great. Not jonesing to have it again.

12 oz. bottle pours a clear rusty orange hue. A massive, fake looking off white head leaves an awesome lace. Has a spicy, black pepper caramel smell. Medium bodied with way too much carbonation. Mildly sweet caramel taste with a raw hop bitterness to finish.

Golden medium hopped English Style Pale Ale. C-hops’ presence give DPA a grapefruit and pine flavor, but its balance leans towards the malts.

Tasted at Wine World. Color me unimpressed. There is way better out there of this type and in this range

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2009
A golden beer with little to no head. Aroma was malty sweet & floral hops. The taste was sweet first then the bitter coming after, with a slight taste of pepper. Big chunks of sediment. Nothing to jump up for.

An simple session with little to offer but plain average beer goodness. The smell is the best attribute here with a bready apricot aroma dominating. The taste leaves a lot to the imagination coming off more like a pale lager with weak dirty hop flavor and an ashtray finish. Watery consistency but with a really even carbonation. Thanks Great Divide. 2009 12oz.
