Great Divide "DPA" (Denver Pale Ale)
Great Divide Brewing Company - Denver, Colorado USA
English Pale Ale (ABV 5.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a hazy medium amber with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head, which dissipated down to a thick film and a large collar with very good runny lacing.

The aroma was of a sweet light bread malt, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of apple, toffee, caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange).

The taste was somewhat malty and a tad bitter sweet with notes of caramel, toffee and a mild fruity ester in the beginning with a light hoppy citrus bitterness towards the end. The flavor hung around for an average duration, while the slightly bitter sweet taste settled on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body and dry in texture with an almost medium carbonation.

Overall a pretty basic Pale Ale with a slight fruity twist...
