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.

6-pack from state line liquors - a very drinkable pale ale with a pretty strong malt backbone and a muted floral hop presence typical of English PAs. I much prefer the Fresh Hop Pale Ale offering by Great Divide, which is one of the few Fresh Hop offerings of a Pale Ale. This is a bit too bread-y malt-y for my taste. Still, a very drinkable offering.

Enjoyed on tap in sampler form at Great Divide barrel room in Denver, CO. Appearance is light clean gold with a robust white head. Aroma is mostly yeast with a bit of faint light malt. Taste is pretty good. Fresh and clean. Definitely sessionable, but not after drinking a bunch of other beers. Would probably have again.

On tap at Great Divide. Bright orange copper, fruity pine hop bouquet. Dry finish on a balanced body. It’s got an ascerbic bitterness with pine and passionfruit/citrus peel notes. Nice.

Cloudy golden orange, ample tan head, quite frothy. Head really prevents a lot of the nose from coming through. Some pine, maybe some hay. Light bitterness, some amount of sweetness. Lightish body, some oiliness. Fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An earthy pine aroma. Deep burned copper body topped with a healthy off-white head about two fingers thick.The head clings to the glass like it should. A firm bitterness but is balanced with nutty malt character to smooth it out. I sense hints of caramel sweetness in the background.

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.

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

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
