Hop lovers, this is the beer for you. Four different styles of American hops are artfully staggered against a sturdy malt backbone to create a unique, drinkable and balanced Pale Ale.

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.

(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear gold-amber with creamy medium tan head. Nose of orange, bit of hairspray, dank, moderate bitter/citrus here as well. Taste of caramel, orange, nice creamy finish and decently balanced.

hershiser2 (1175) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Pours medium amber with a frothy peachy head. Smells of light fruit, bread, and copper. Tastes of citrus fruit, malt, and has a metallic finish.

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Pours a dark copper with a weak white head, not much lacing. Slightly floral aroma. Beginning flavor is light piney hops that last throughout, fairly thin mouth feel. Not the hop bomb the description makes it out to be, but a decent Pale Ale.

Dominion calls this APA, ’Hop Mountain’. But there is not a moutain of hops in here. Adequate, plentiful, satisfying amount of hops. Malts are not obscured by the medium bitterness. Don’t get me wrong I liked this beer, more than I actually thought I would. I had a few clunkers from Coastal Brewing, but this one was a gem of a beer. Jut not a ’Hop Mountain’.

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Ganked from my brother: Pours a pretty orange brown color with a nice off-white and long-lasting head. Aroma is not that powerful and I notice the caramel notes before anything else. However, the taste is very well-balanced. No reason to call this a hop mountain, but there is a sufficient amount of hoppy bitterness, but it is the malt backbone that makes this beer for me. Very good balance and very good body. Better than I expected this jawn to be.

tomer (1529) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle, medium stable head, murky dark orange to brown colour, flowery aroma with notes of bread and tobbaco, fruity flavour, peach and orange, mellow herbal bitterness, long pleasant bitterness. Nice pale ale.

This poured a lighter amber color with an off white head. Aroma was decent citrus and bittering hops with light caramel too. Flavor was nicely bittter, not much hop flavor, with a balancing biscuty caramel malt backbone.
