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.

Really well crafted beer, but with very malty overtones true to the English model. I enjoyed it, but the malt flavor didn't hit my sweet spot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Copper pour topped by a thin but persistant foamy white head. Interesting toasty aroma comprised of sweet caramel, and nutty malty notes. Medium bodied small bubble mouth feel. Sweet flavor followed by a slight bitter afterbite. Nice beer.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 A nice, albeit malty pale ale. Palate is oily. Light amber pour with a light head.

Poured a pale amber color, with a solid white head and little floating yeast chunks. Surprisingly fresh floral hop aroma, followed by a strong toffee aroma with a slight buttery tint. The flavor brings out the caramel and toffe with a significant up front bitterness. Decent body with just a little slipperyness in the finish. This was a good beer, which I suspect would be better if a little more fresh.

Bottled - Pours a hazy orange... Nose is crisp hops... Taste is a bold hoppy bitternesswith grapefruit tones, not much malt with a clean bitter finish... Overall a nice pale ale from Great Divide.

Visiting CO and Sunday i found out about the 3.2 ABW law. Went to a supermarket in hopes of finding something other than watered down 3.2 bud/coors etc (which seems to be the only beer you can buy on a Sunday here) - and found the lower ABV version of this beer. That said - it was not bad, yet nothing special either, but i may be tempted to try the 5.6 version if i find it in a single or visit the brewery to compare.

The body is pale orange with tints of red in certain light. The head is slighly off-white, thick with medium bubbles which holds its ground. Aroma of heavy sweet malts and citrus pine. It also has a slighty earthy character to it. The flavor is mostly hops with a slight citrus flavor and and earthy malts. The body has a perfect consistancy for this beer: not watery, but for the amount of flavor that comes through, it allows it to stick to your tongue. On another note, Great The body is pale orange with tints of red in certain light. The head is creamy, every so slightly off-white, and with medium bubbles, mostly diminishing.

On another note, Great Divides ESB and amber have very similar characteristics to the pale ale. I can’t put my finger on it, but somehow they are almost the same beer with slightly different malt and hops levels.Divides ESB and amber have very similar characteristics to the pale ale.

Had this just once. Smelled of frsh hops and a slight bit of lemon. Tastes pretty ordinary, but still a solid beer.
