Dominion Hop Mountain Pale Ale

Dominion started life in Ashburn, Virginia, back in 1989. In 2007 they merged with Fordham and relocated to Dover, Delaware, where the brewery is now called Fordham & Dominion Brewing Company. This beer brings together Kiwi hop Nelson Sauvin, assisted by Cascade and Columbus, with a caramel malt background, and it works really well. [This beer was drunk in the wonderful Rake, Borough Market.]

Dominion Hop Mountain Pale Ale
6.3% alcohol
Hailing from Dover, Delaware, this is a deliciously rich, malty, bold, hoppy pale ale. The distinctive feature is the way the hoppiness (from a Kiwi plus two USA hops) is countered by lovely sweet fudgy notes. It also has some nice bite on the finish. Really malty as well as hoppy, in a way that works well. 8.5/10
