Fra flaske (innkjøpt på Kihoskh) ombord på Fridtjofen (RBHD!) aug-15: ah, en ganerenser med amerikansk humlefest fra ende til annen. Og i tillegg særdeles godt balansert. Life is good. Og utseendet? Gylden, med hvitt skum.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a deep dark orangey amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out earthy notes, with feet, vegetal notes and resinous hops. Flavour tastes better than it smells, with loads of resinous hops, earthy notes, skunky feety notes, and light bready malt. Well-balanced, without too much sweetness or bitterness. Very good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Cloudy yellow/amber with a nice foamy beige head. Surprisingly there is a strong malty aroma and secondly the hops are present in the nose. Rich malty with a balanced bitterness. Finish is due to the dry hopping nice and long. This IPA is brewed with more bitter hops than aroma hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
7/16/2015: Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve had a beer from Dominion... Double-D is strong, sharp and alcoholic. It’s malty with a raw bitterness that’s earthy and herbal. The alcohol makes itself known. This seemed like an Imperial East Coast or even English-style IPA. It was okay, but seemed a bit underdeveloped. Dirty golden color, medium body, average texture, a bit of an effort to get through the entire 6-pack...

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This imperial IPA has large coarse foam as long-lasting. The aroma is well hidden under the foam layer, but a little pine needles sticking through as the main theme. The taste is slightly malty with fruity notes of raisin. Then comes a little woody richness which tastes a little delicate along the wet oak, or at least as I imagine wet oak would taste. Slightly bitter orange peel with pine needles characterize the overall impression and at the end you will find grapefruit and citrus. The alcohol shows its face in the absolute final and characterize this IIPA slightly negatively. The delicate tones of orange, pine needles and wood was quite exciting, but the acute alcohol lows the long aftertaste that should be present in this IIPA. A little sin, for it is certainly an IIPA with good rates, I just think it is a little too heavy alcohol toward the end.
