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.

12 oz. bottle from a sampler, bottle 073108. Clear brown pour with not much head. Cascade hop aroma is strong with some vegetal notes. Very leafy hop taste with a grainy malt background. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Copperish color, thin head, disipates quickly. A nice hop bite, not too bitter for a pale. Deep malty flavor. Lots of carmel. I like this beer.

On tap in Reagan Airport. Amber coloured beer. Aroma is lightly malty. A bit of herbal/toasty sweetness. Fairly generic though with not a whole lot of character. Low bitterness, kind of herbal. Meh.

On tap - Dominion brewpub - May 2008
Pours and coppery red color. I could detect no aroma at all - no hops, not malts - nada. Flavor matched the aroma - thin and weak. If seltzer were a beer - this would be it. It was crisp and dry, but damn near flavorless. Is this Budweiser’s influence showing on Dominion now that they own them??

Copper colored, somewhat thin head and a little bit of lace. Sweet, malty aroma, although not very strong. Seems like a nice blend of hops and malts. There’s a quick malt taste with a fairly smooth hoppy finish. Both are easily detected. Finishes a little bitter. The more you taste it the more the bitter mouthfeel comes out. A pretty good Pale Ale.

Speedle (266) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2008
amber pour ... sour musty aroma .... tastes 10x better than it smells... nice bitter hop pine citrus smart with a smooth middle and a crisp bitter finish .... I had to go back to check the aroma ... some of the original skunk disappeared, but not all of it ... good tasting beer, but I was thrown off by the aroma .... went back for the 3rd time ... now aroma is fine .. classic IPA, citrus and pine resin ... overall nice hop and malt balance .... I’m staying local to the brewery, I have to stop by and and see if they have it on draft

Poured from the bottle into a tall glass. A cloudy, dark amber color with a creamy, off-white head that had good retention and cling. The aroma featured a rich, floral hop scent and caramel malt. Flavor was an interesting balance of sweetness and bitterness, and well comprised. A very good mouthfeel, with a creamy, wet and full body and moderate carbonation. Overall a high quality beer with good character and definition.
