fragrant citrus hop aroma and nice deep copper colored brew full of malt and hop flavors. sharp brisk flavor makes soft foamy head seem more harsh. nice hay malt and hops in competition at the finish before a hit of grapefruit pith.

Caramel red, beige cover and sheety lacing. Aroma is very bready, sweet, hard candy, butterscotch. Taste is more metallic, some butterscotch, a nondescript bitter, pretty meh.

Orange color. watery body. Boring except for the nice hop bitterness. It is a Hop Tea, not a Beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a 12 oz. botltle. Pours a dark amber color. Light head. Aroma is sweet, almost reminds me of butter toffee. Taste is really malty, overpoweringly so. Tastes like butter. i think I may have gotten a bad bottle. This wasn’t good.

A little surprised when I noticed I hadn’t rated this one. Dominion makes a pretty solid pale ale. I’ve had it out of the bottle a good number of times, do not recall ever consuming on tap, but I may have. Solid, well balanced, and easily drinkable brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the Dulles location. Pours a rich reddish copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of citric hop. Flavor is lush floral and citrus hop over a decent malt backbone. Rather more ESB than APA. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Not real bitter, but bitter enough. Pretty well balanced. Medium levels of bitter persist through the finish. Gets a bit astringent. Overall impression of lushness.

On tap at "brewhouse" in Dulles airport. Really nice floral aromas and slightly toasted malts here, good to smell. Full mouth flavor here with differing levels and a certain amount of complexity. Buttery fruited notes are balanced nicely by a sturdy piney hops presence and a buoyant floral touch. Easy to drink and very quenching. Very good. Went great with a nice spicy chili.
