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.

Pours a light amber. Kind of watery. Very little head. Not as hoppy as I was expecting. obguthr (6344) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Chestnut and grapefruit aroma in excellent proportions. Hazy ochre color with a thick yellow head. Quite dry and nutty, but not strong and not very good either. It leaves a bitter waxy film that ruins it for me. How can something smell so nice and taste so bad? There must be aromatic additives. jgb9348 (6250) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2003 This is a re-rating from a beer I had on Tap at Hero's in Manassas, Virginia. I bought this in a bottle from Whole Foods in Vienna, Virginia. The colour is a little odd, darker amber and a nice white head which leaves decent lacing behing on the glasss. The aroma is almost purely hops, but that is a very good thing! The taste is pretty balanced, although a bit vinegary--even from the bottle. Good hoppyness balanced with adequate maltiness combined with decent sweetness. A pretty good pale ale, the first time I had it, it wasn't good at all...but this time in the bottle, I'm pleasantly impressed. One to pick up if you are in Washington or Virginia!

Pours a nice brown with a puffy white head. Nose is malt with some hop character and a slightly metallic tinge. The tongue is full of malt and hops and leaves something on the tongue when finishing. Decent beer and worth trying but nothing spectacular.

Orange hue with a gentle off-white ring. Fresh and crisp aroma boasts plenty of caramel malt developing a nice toffee and cookies side to pair with the rich hop profile, orangey and earthy, yet bright and vibrant. Surprising salty notes complement the vegetal, algae-like, earthy, herbal and globally natural flavour components. Pleasant oily medium body presents crisp carbonation that match well with the zesty hopppiness. Good stuff! Thanks a lot Hopscotch! 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. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 This pours a rich, clear amber color with a two-fingered white head. The aroma is of caramel malts topped with floral and herbal hops. The flavor is a sweet caramel backbone with solid citric, floral, and earthy hoppings. It finishes on a sweet malt note with a dollop of hop bitterness.JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013

Draft at the brewpub. Golden pour, slightly hazy, white head. Grainy, citrus, lightly hoppy. Not too interesting, but still quite quaffible. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Bottle from VA. Copper red with a fizzy head. Caramel and hops aroma and taste with some mild bitterness, fairly well balanced.
