downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2012
At the Dominion Taproom at Dulles airport 9/12/2012. Deep amber with a slight white head that left rings down the glass. Light, sweetish aroma of caramel, with a hint of hedgerow fruit and leafy hops. Flavour had cereals, more caramel and a moderately bitter finish. Easy drinking.

BREWMUSKCLES (2686) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2012
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.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2010
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.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2009
12oz bottle @ 1st Annual RocketCity Brewfest, Huntsville, AL. Orange color. watery body. Boring except for the nice hop bitterness. It is a Hop Tea, not a Beer. 08 may 09

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.

3.7
bhensonb (15194) - 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.
