Visual: Part of a 4-pack, mixed bombers. Pours translucent golden orange with a tiny head, a bit of lacing, loose clusters of active streams.
Nose: toasty toffee citrusy hopped malts. (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: light slick/thicker viscosity, smooth-crisp entry
Mid-palate: slightly creamy, (lvl-6-sweetness), citrusy-biscuity-resin, toffee barley malt
Finish: med sharp bitter hops, lingering malts, mellow clean finish.
Summary: Smooth and well-bodied IPA with all around pleasant balanced flavours. IPAs of this caliber make me a fan of the style. Delicious creamy mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
July 21st, 2014 - Ninkasiís Total Domination is a well received brew down here in San Diego, where its robust IBU and hop forward flavor jive with our lupulin-centric culture. More orange than amber, itís a bright beer, bristling with energy, and delivering a sweet aroma. Pine resin, freshly cut wood, graham crackers and peach esters take me back to picnics in Pacific Northwest woods. The palate is flatter, but the beer has been sitting out for an unusually long amount of time. Each sip delivers a low, sweet, smooth IPA taste, pushing more pine with each intake, and the vapors expressing more of their heavy hop accent. The long aftertaste cuts off the hop bitterness and emphasizes the sweet pine syrup, cooling it with a deeper molasses sugar, and a touch of spice. P.S. Enjoyed on an airplane flight to Monterey, so atmospheric effects might warp tasting notes.

Hop bomb alert. The piney ness to this is huge along with the bitterness. This is good but beer like this makes me feel overwhelmed by pine. Dunno if I like pine much

Pours a hazy orange-copper, with mid-sized head. Aroma full of pine and citrus. Flavor is pretty bitter. Lots of pine and spruce and just a touch of citrus in the flavor. Some light sweetness. Pretty good flagship beer.

On a scale of yuk to yum this one score only very moderately interesting on my taste buds. I cannot understand the high ratings it gets.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours cloudy orange without much head. The aroma is citrus, a little bit of popcorn, some floral notes. The flavor is a little too acerbic. Bitter, but in a vaguely metallic way. Got a little better as it warmed.

The previous "go to" beer. No longer the go to beer but not the worst. Not a bad pallet. Fair bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the store. massive white head, Amber color, clear. No idea obviously how old it is but not much hoppy notes left in the aroma. Bit grassy, bit piney, bit fruit, very malty. But except that there is some spicy, almost funky note, which makes it nice. Same thing in taste. Except that not only spicy notes are making the taste so nice but also the bitterness, which is on rather high level. My beer was 81ibu version. Very nice example of west coast IPA. Very dry. Itís rather nice.
