look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Picked up @ Total Wines for around 9, 10 bucks for a 6 pack.

I really enjoy DIPAs so I decided that I would give this a shot... heck its local !!

Not too overwhelming, and flavor/taste is nice. After one, two.... it was beginning to grow on me.

I would say better than good, and I would have this beer again (Good price, decent beer)

First review, so bare with me people.

3.75/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Orange and murky in color with a white head. A light lace but it sticks.

Smell: Sweet, floral, light hops, grapefruit, and alcohol esters

Taste: Sweet with a grapefruit hops flavor with a malt backbone. A little off for a DIPA more like a barlywine.

Mouthfeel: heavy body, low carbonation. Syrupy like. Some warmness.

Overall: A little different from most DIPA. But I keep on wanting to take another sip. And the ABV will hit you before you know it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Cloudy brown / amber with decent head retention. Sticky lacing.

S - Citrus rind, grass, alcohol.

T - Hop bomb, citrus zest, warming alcohol, some malty sweetness. Heavy on the hop profile (which isn't a bad thing) and slightly tries to balance with some caramel malts.

A - Really a solid DIPA - I'd try this again.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served: straight out of the bottle...I know...wasn't expecting much.

Appearance: I can't rate this. I drank it from the bottle. Kudos for using a brown bottle though.

Aroma: quite nice. Unexpected from a beer with a screw top. It's defiantly all hops. Lets see if the taste matches.

Taste: wonderful. Fresh hops, citrus and some malts. The high gravity is masked. Always a plus.

Mouthfeel: it is a bit too carbonated, but that's ok. One should take their time savoring this one.

Overall: good double IPA. Very true to the name. Nice label. Don't underestimate the screw top.

Dominion Double D IPA is a delicious and big DIPA. It is dominated by grapefruit hopiness over a nice balancing malty base.

A: Orange colour and a 5 mm head that fades pretty fast. 3.5

S: Lovely orangy-citrus aroma. Some grapefruit sourness there too. 4

T: Malty sweetness with grapefruit citrus flavour. This is a big beer in all the ways I like! 4.5

M: Pretty low carbonation. 4

O: 4.5

12 oz bottle into tulip. bottling date: 05/24/13.

A: bright. orange body. bubbly bright white head. good retention. spotted lacing.

S: a lot of oranges. peel, bitter rind, sweet flesh, all of the above. there are definitely a lot of hops in here. smells bitter.

T: bittersweet start. similar to the nose, lots of orange flavor. a little floral. there is a decent amount of sweetness to balance the bitterness, however not necessarily caramel or malty. finish starts to get dry and bitter.

M: tastes thick. average carb on a full body.

D: definitely delivers on the hop end of things. however, wouldn't have hated for some more complexity on the hop end and for the bitterness to take a step back. but that is me. glad I got a fresh bottle and thanks for bottle dating ODBC!

Sampled from a 12oz bottle received in a trade with surge1311. Date was 2/18/13.

A - Light golden and very clear with a small white head.

S - Piney and earthy hops with an occasional grassy quality.

T - Clean, crisp and fairly safe. A moderate bitterness with limited hop flavor. Nothing special but solid.

M - Moderate consistency and carbonation. Maybe a little thin for the style and alcohol level.

O - A safe DIPA. Easy drinking and refreshing.
