This one pours a hazy golden orange with a nice foam head and plenty of sticky lace. There is an almost intense hop oil aroma; it feels like you are breathing citric and resiny hop fumes as well as alcohol. Similarly the taste is quite hop forward. There is a big grapefruit finish and a big bitter aftertaste. The palate is also bitter and dry. There is also alcohol. The feel is medium bodied, slick and oily. The carbonation is prickly. This one is good for a hops fix, but not particularly balanced. Also, I wish the alcohol was masked a bit more. Overall, I would have again as it was tasty enough. Nevertheless it's not the best example of the style.

Served in a Tulip glsss out of the bottle. Nice appearance with a white foamy head and excellent lacing. Somewhat typical IPA aroma, but not overpowering scent. Extremely strong hoppy bitterness not for the casual IPA drinker.

L: Copper. Nice head that lingers.

S: Citrus, Pine and Resin. Some malt character as well

T: I really like the flavor. It's a pretty big hop bomb, but it's balanced nicely with maltiness. Pine and Resin come through nicely, with some big malty biscuit notes showing up.

F: Typical Double IPA. Smooth with decent carbonation

Looks good, smells ok, tastes unappealing. I liked Dominion when they were in northern Va (and still independent), but this doesn't take me back. A bit syrupy, making it hard to get through.
