COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Total Domination IPA has a citrusy, floral hop aroma, and big hop flavor balanced with a richness imparted by Carahell and Munich malts. This beer is a big flavorful Northwest IPA that maintains its drinkability, and as such, has garnered great admiration from the novice craft drinker and the seasoned hop-head alike.

(22oz. btl) - Smallish white head which pretty much collapsed after pouring, to a foamy ring around the edge of the glass. Somewhat clear golden body. Aroma of apricot. First sip has a medium bitterness similar to spruce. Ramps up a little bit on the tongue, though not overly bitter. For me, it’s a "training wheels" IPA. Slight warming a minute after drinking.

One of my favorite IPA’S. This beer is strong but smooth enough to drink on any occasion.

Excellent IPA! Bomber bottle from Wegmans in Collegeville. This beer poured a light amber color with a orange hue. What head the beer had dissipated quickly, leaving only a small amount of sticky lace stuck to the side of the glass. The nose was bitter, spicy, with some notes of orange, wood and toasted malt. The body was very drinkable and smooth, with flavors of balanced notes of bitter hops and bready malt. Very good IPA.

12oz bottle pours out a dark golden topped with a white head. Nose is cereal malts grainy and a nice hop kick. Taste is more of the malty touch and a good hop balance.

12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Pale orange and clear appearance with a white head and light lacing. Mostly hoppy aroma of citrus fruits, floral notes, earth, grass, cereal and bread. Similar flavor, medium plus bitterness with a lingering, dry finish. Solid IPA overall.

BeErikS (27) - TAIWAN - JUN 12, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 Poured from the bottle in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Big IPA that leans more toward hops than malt, so for those that love the bite, this is definitely one to try. I was a little underwhelmed by the nose and the quick dissipation of the head, but maybe it was wilting in the Thai heat like I was. Flavor is great though for us hopheads. Fruity, citrusy with a bite. Yum.

jercraigs (8423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
2015-06-05. Crisp orange body with a small frothy off white head. Aroma is a melange of tangerine citrus and green resiny hops. Flavour is pleasantly bitter throughout, moderate citrus notes and resin. Citrus character is a bit undefined at first but grows more pronounced as you go. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Solid, tasty. Bottle at The Pourhouse, Edmonton.

Good malt body with a floral hop presence. Biscuits, toasted toffee, and earthy hops. Pretty decent overall.
