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.

Pours a nice copper, almost orange, color. Nice head. Not much for the sniffer. Lacks punch. Seems to be missing something.

Pours a light gold straw. Nice foamy white head Not much aroma Bitterness is strong, but not quite there. This was my second beer, and the previous was southern hemisphere, and maybe the wet hop experience altered my perceptions of this. I waited and had some water, but still, not quite there. Drinkable, and i need to have this again first...

StormCoat (118) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Tasted a bomber bottle. It pours a cloudy honey color with a fluffy, off-white head, and maintains really nice, resilient lacing throughout. Aroma is a pretty standard IPA scent of piney hops; good, but nothing spectacular. Taste is also pretty typical of a good, solid IPA: fresh grassy/piney notes, and a little bitterness. It’s nicely balanced--not too much jumps out at me here, except for that lacing, and some lemony overtones that are accompanied by a slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is really pleasant. Overall, if you want to enjoy a pretty straightforward, tasty IPA, this is a good choice. I have no idea what "Total Domination" means, but I definitely look forward to having this one again sometime.

jazz88 (2585) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle. A copper color with a white head. Light fruits (cider, orange) in the aroma. A bitter mouthful, a mild cereal flavor finishing with bitter hops and light fruits.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Bottle. Dark warm orange. Hazy with lacing. Fruity IPA--has lots of papaya with a squeeze of lime balanced by biscuity malts. Ah, the nice smooth palate has soft carbonation. Interplay of crusty bread malts and fruity hops is outrageously delicious and sessionable to the max!

fraternie (888) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Deep, creamy texture with up front hop flavors balancing its floral citrus and burnt caramel notes. Very hoppy and smooth through the long finish.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2010
A: Copper color body with a hint of haze to it. Head is off white and about a 1 finger depth. Good amount of lacing and medium head retention. S: a good balance of malt and hop bitterness. T: same as smell. M: the solid malt profile makes this one a touch thicker when it comes to mouthfeel. D: A good IPA when you are in the mood for a slight malt profile. Hops still deliver though!

Oakes (13185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2010
Hazy, dull coppery colour. Herbal piney aroma. Soft body with gentle bready and slightly caramelly malts. Gentle but insistent bitterness. Good balance and very drinkable. I like the balance on this one.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Hazy orange pour with a fluffy white head and drippy lace. Aroma of tropical fruits. Resinous hoppy flavor with a nice malty backbone. Bitter dry finish. The by no means is hot or alcoholic but I cannot beleive this under 7%. Seems bigger (in a goodway)

Clear light amber, small beige head. Sweet caramel nose, some citrus and honey. Lightly sweet taste, lightly bitter; grapefruit, tangerine, honey and caramel. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation. Mediocre, but unoffensive.
