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 Brewers 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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Pours a light amber. Kind of watery. Very little head. Not as hoppy as I was expecting.

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.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
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!

TheBeerGod (6172) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2003
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.

Overall Impression: A little surprised when I noticed I hadnt rated this one. Dominion makes a pretty solid pale ale. Ive 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.

jgb9348 (6055) - 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!

EithCubes (5772) - 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.

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.
