2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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’.

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.

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.
