3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle shared by Scott. Poured a nice solid body deep orange with an average sized frothy white head. Aroma started off with nice hop notes of citrus, apricott and some tropical fruits followed up by sweet malts, honey and caramel. The body is a bit on the fuller side with softer carbonation. Flavor is a bit more sweet then the aroma with more honey and caramel and lighter on the citrus notes. Solid especially just for a pale ale.

At Dulles Airport - beautiful cloudy orange whith a 3/4" white foam head. Floral hops aroma. Decent hops and malt balance, but somehow seems to missing a strong malt background. I like it after a 5 hour flight.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Rams Head Tavern in Annapolis, MD. Pours clear copper with a yellowish, rocky, impressive protein and isohumulone laden head. Good rocky retention. Muted citrus hop nose with corn. Taste is decently thick with soap and metallic of character. Sudsy and soapy palate with decent resinous hop bitterness. Not too offensive. Much too soapy though. No quenching malt character. As it warms there is a frozen veggie character I am not a fan of. Probably mild DMS problem masked by hop bitterness. Fordham/Dominion is a great brewery to help aspiring beer judges pinpoint classic brewing flaws.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Name a misnomer, nothing mountainous about the hops. Aroma of floral and citrus notes. Flavor has pine taking a little bit of a role, citrus at the front, caramel in the base. Smooth, a bit wanting of more hops, mouthfeel moderate to light in body. An ok brew.
