COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, red ale is made in the American Pale Ale style. It has a strong hop character, medium body, dry finish, and floral hop aroma. We use pale Two-Row Brewer’s malt, Caramel 80 and 40 Lovibond malt, and Munich malt. For bittering and aroma Willamette, Cascade, and Tettnang hops are used in the kettle and as dry hopping in the fermenter.

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.

Overall Impression: 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.

bhensonb (10814) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2009
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.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2009
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.

Tap at Dullas airport. Clear amber-red with small white head and splotchy lacing. Nice sprucey hops in aroma. Nice crispness. Finishes clean. Is herbal, dry, and piney with a nice malt backbone. Balanced and drinkable.

At tap at IAD. Amber colour with a slight brown accent. Woody, cascadey aroma with tropical fruit accents. Woody taste with some sweetish malts. Strongly reminiscent of SNPA. Slightly sticky finish.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2009 Draft. Pours a clear dark copper. Small off white head. Slight aroma of floral hops. Flavor is a bitter hop attack! After taste is dry and bitter. Not really picking up anything else. Low carbonation..

Draft. Luckily they had this on tap at a restaurant we visited while in Virginia. The other choices were unthinkable so went with these and to my surprise they were pretty good.

DocLock (7743) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2009
Draft. Pours copper with nose of hopcitrus, lemongrassy, caramel malt, with a medium palate and flavor of pretty heavy hops, a bit of fruit, and a solid malt bill. Very good, very hoppy, very crisp, and very assertive. Well done.
