Bottle. Caramel-like aroma, simple, but good. Wow, this pours as the darkest "pale ale" I’ve ever seen...the color of a heavily tanned Native American. I was expecting a drinkable session beer, but the flavor is complex and layered, a nice blend of roasted nuts, sugars, barley, and a hoppy undertone. Finishes smoothly. I would enjoy having just one of these, or drinking them all night long. Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Bottle. Bitter, nutty aroma that was not too pleasant. Poured a clear reddish-brown color with a medium white head and slight lacing. Nice mouthfeel: not too light and not too heavy. Flavor is hoppy and malty with a nice caramel kick. Pleasant bitter aftertaste. Pretty good beer. LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2007
12 oz bottle, bottled 12/27/06. Pours amber color with white head. Aroma sweet malt. Taste malt with bitter bite. Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Bottle. Fresh, light bready citrus nose, tiny bubbles on a copper brown body with a nicely bitter taste that finishes quick, quite bitter for an APA. bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 25, 2007
Poured much dark copper color then i expected small head. Aroma had a sweet malt to it. Flavor was citrus hops to it with a balanced caramel malt to it, not the best pale ale but not bad either.

Bottle- Deep amber with red hints, emitting a frothy beige cap. Moderate spider web lace. Fresh out the grocery store florals in the nose, lotsa hops, burnt sugars, caramalized fruits. Tastes spicy and hoppy (pine), rye bread, apples. Nice bite to the finish, assertive, and refreshing. A good one. thanks David! BigJeffHead (7) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2007 does not count
Usually have a 1/6 keg of this in my downstairs fridge. It’s a perfectly serviceable APA. Well balanced malt and hops, some citrus, a solid pale ale, especially for the 1/6 keg price. ganache (5896) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle. Above-avg strength citrus and resin aroma. Expecting oiliness. Amber pour with a wee little beige head that quickly faded into nothingness. Medium-light watery body with a mf somewhere between prickly and smooth. Mild and inconspicuous. Light rubbery bitterness, a touch of woodiness, and little else. Slightly grainy. Just not enough flavor for a potentially explosive style. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draught at Old Dominion for breakfast - RBSG DC 06
Caramel and amber. Light head and lacing. Nose of fruity hops, earthy and piney. Cereal like malty and light in body. The finish is average. Nice nose but not that interesting in the end. Tmoney99 (14460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy brown color with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Medium body. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration.
