Consumed five months after bottling. Poured into a shaker pint. I apologize. The sacred gilded chalice was in the dishwasher.

Appearance: Dark copper, and a bit hazy. Very little head to speak of, but little was expected.

Aroma: Malt. Very biscuity. Heavy.

Taste: More malt and tea-leaf bitterness. Hops not very forward at first taste, but they make themselves known as the beer warms. You can tell this is an American version of an English Pale.

Overall: A really nice English style beer that is thick and hearty. Low alcohol makes it easy to drink, and I will definitely seek this one out again.

Copper on the pour with a one finger head from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bland smell of Malt and outs. Taste was slight hops on the front, and slight malt on the back, but nothing special - good - but was hoping for more from Great Divide.

Beer #1 on a great divide sampler night. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, some sweetness. Taste is less malty than the smell. Hops are up front, but not overpowering. Some malts are present, as well as a bit of lemon. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but one is enough for tonight.

DPA is one of Great Divide's best sellers, and it's easy to understand why. Smooth, very drinkable, and not too high alcohol, you'll reach for this one a lot. Nothing wrong with a basic pale ale, and this one delivers.
