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.

Clear amber colored beer with small white head and no carbonation. Few hoppy aroma. Full slightly sparkling palate, rather wattery. Finish is bitter hoppy with some spicy touches. Bob thanks for the beer.

Pretty good pale ale, sharp hops with a good bite. Light body and fades fairly fast on the palate.

Yellow bubbly pour. Caramel hops with crisp lemon citrus notes. Good session beer if it wasnt so expensive.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Kind of a bland APA in my opinion. Clear copperish golden colored with a slim head and little lacing. Medium hop aroma and a bit sweet smelling. Flavor is slightly bitter and has a metallic taste to it. A bit watery. Medium body. Not a bad beer just nothing really impressive.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2004
UPDATED: APR 9, 2004 Deep amber-copper, thin off-white head. Nose tart and hoppy, bit sour and skanky, even though it was bottled two months ago. Hops have lots of pine, a bit citric. Some malts, though not enough to balance the hops, bit of toffee and maple syrup as well.

I was surprised by this pale ale. It came across more as an amber than a pale. It was a light amber body and smelled like a red too.

I wasn’t blown away by this stuff, but it does leave a pleasant image in my mind. Good session beer.

Amber in colour with a small head. Aroma is sweet and floral hopped. I was expecting an american pale, but as stated by others, this is more of an english style.

Yeah its okay. Not nearly as bold as some of their other stuff. Light hops in the nose and taste, quite mellow. Average.
