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.

Aroma is a little strange, smells kinda like an attic, a little hoppy too. Golden color. Solid mouthfeel. Taste is mainly bitter hops. A solid pale, but nothing extraordinary.

Thanks to BBB63 for this one. Pours deep straw/amber with a nice head and very good lacing. Aroma of malt, hopcit, florals, slight spice and fruit. Tastes hoppy, woth some finishing fruit and florals. Pretty good balance and a nice complexity. Not bad.

Beaver (1847) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Pours a slightly hazy copper-orange with a monstrous fluffy off-white head that retains well and shows some lacing.

Its aroma is biscuity caramel malt and grassy floral hops with some citrus and pepper.

The flavor is sweet (almost candy-like) caramel malts, with some biscuit and a mild bitter finish. The bitterness in the aftertaste and finish comes out a little more as it warms. A little on the thin side.

Overall, a little too sweet for me, although it got better as it warmed. Not much of the classic English PA hoppiness.

Ungstrup (38489) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2004
An amber beer with a small disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with some notes of alcohol. While the flavor is sweet malty with a hoppy end. But the body is thin.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 21, 2004
In the bottle. Rich golden to light amber color. Decent head of relatively standard duration. Cedary pine-like hop aroma with yeasty bread mixed in for good measure. Average hop content of a variety I can’t put my finger on. Seems stronger in alcohol than 5%. An OK session beer that does not overwhelm.

Jeppe (2634) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Orange colored, foamy off-white head. Sweet and somewhat cloying aroma of fruit and hops with tones of asparagus (!) Also asparagus in the flavor with little hops and tones of soil (!!) Thin body and finish. What the hell went wrong with this one Great Divide?!?

madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2004
Bottled: Light amber coloured. Light beige head. Very malty aroma. Some sweetness and fruit is there. Buttery and sweet in the flavour. Is ligth hopped which leads into a light bitterness in the end. An average beer, thats not offending anyone. Even great brewers makes beers, that are less than divine.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Some hops and aspargus(!) in the nose. Golden body, small white head. It also tastes of asaprgus and dirt. Bad one...

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Nice Light reddish color. Light hop notes in the aroma more of a malty nose. Taste has marginal hop flavor, a light buttery malt base stays until the end. Slightly bitter and somewhat clean. An uninspiring beer.

T’ain’t bad but ain’t nuffin to git all excited about. Would drink it if it was free. Might think that comment is completely dissmissive, but if you were to find that I routinely turn down crappy free beers you will see it’s not. A bit thin and all, but okay.
