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 bottle from Bottleworks in Seattle. Opaque orange pour with a medium white head. Sweet malt aroma with some orangy and piney hops. A bit of honey sweetness up front with lots of orange hop character before a balanced bittersweet finish. Very good.

mcberko (9732) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2010
22 oz. bottle, pours cloudy orange with an off-white head. Aroma of herbal hops and lots of caramel malt backing. Flavour of citrus hops, very dominant caramel malts, lots of citrus and pine. Way too malty for an IPA, for my taste.

Had this while camping at BCTC this year, courtesy of Trevor. Pours a hazed glowing gold orange with a medium sized beige head. Caramel, hops, citrus and pine. Just on the thin side of medium bodied, oxidized malt and citrus. Long slow grapefruit and light quinine on the finish.

On tap at Fratelliís in Portland. Deep golden, slightly brown color, thin even white head. Aroma some piney notes, some slight alcohol. Bitter start, yields to floral finish. Like it better then itís brother Radiant. Would drink again.

This is a great IPA, I especially liked how the hops controlled most of the flavor. Total Domination holds both a smooth great texture as well as a strong carbonation accenting the hops flavor perfectly

Bomber. Hazy gold pour, vigorous, stiff, off-white head which lasts and leaves moderate lace. Grapefruit hops evident from the start, slightly stale nose, toasty malt underneath but little sweetness - more cardboard than anything else. Medium body and soft carbonation, not too complex. Finish is bitter. An average west coast IPA, will try it on tap if I can find it but I wouldnít buy another bottle.

OldMrCrow (2177) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Tap at Fiddlers.

Iím astonished that I havenít rated this yet. Who knows how many times Iíve had it! Anyway, relatively light pour, strongly juicy hop aroma. Malts far in the background compared to many West Coast IPAs. Entirely drinkable, but a bit on the grainy side of perfection and not in the league of Tricerihops or Maiden.

skortila (4853) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2010
West USA trip 2010. Bottled. The aroma has aprikots, some pine and grapefruits. Clear, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is moderate bitter and has citrus, aprikots, some caramel. Dry end. Quite good.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Had both on draft and from big bottle. A decent offering. Very lemony, fruity, with some cantaloupe flavor. A big NW IPA, but still a bit watery mouth feel. Decent, long bitter finish. One of the better ones offered in many places in the Northwest if you get it fresh on draft. The bottle version I had was weaker and less aroma and hops in both nose and flavor.

poisoneddwarf (1982) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Bomber poured into English pint. Grapefruit citrusy and pine in the nose; floral, too. Classic. Pours a beautiful deep gold hue with a gigantic rocky head with excellent retention. Leaves some cool lacework. Taste is sweet at first then turns bitter; finishes alcoholic. Some orange marmalade on toast in the flavor here. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium. Overall, a nice tasty IPA, but not among the best.
