COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flagship Series. 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.

Bottle from Bevmo: Created a thick fluffy layer of head while the liquid appeared as a dense golden straw color. The aroma is spicy and soapy with a combination of zesty yeast and typical west coast hops with a heaping squeeze of citrus. Flavors are moderate and serve a honey oat breaded malts with a piney base of hops and citrus. Sort of soapy in the aftertaste, but other than that a standard ipa.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2011
[Tap] Pours a dirty golden color with a thick and lasting head. Typical pinecone and grapefruit nose is strong, but not over the top. Good citrus and pine backbone is moderately bitter. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel is pleasant. Blood orange and bitter resinous sap in the finish. Solidly bitter and really tasty.

keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Solid IPA but too thick & malty for 6.7% ABV. Great Divide’s Titan IPA is 6.8% and is much lighter. That said, the beer is good, even if on the imperial side in taste

Aroma: Great exceptions - rich malt,hint of citrus, licorice and bake apple. \ Appearance - clear golden with thin head Taste - thin, not reflecting aroma, hints of orange, malt Palate - not particularly bright or rich, smooth, light after taste, not particularly bitter Overall - Nice IPA. Bold aroma but a quiet taste.

Bottle and on tap. I have been enjoying this IPA for a while now. The beer starts off a little weak but picks right up and finishes with a great bitterness that sticks around untill the next drink. Total Domination is especially good on tap fresh at the Ninkasi Brewery.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Poured into a snifter. 4.0 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. Three fingers of creamy/frothy off-white head. Retention is average and lots of non-uniform lacing is left. 3.0 S: The aroma is surprisingly subtle. Bready malts with a touch of crystal. Hops offer a slight orange and grapefruit. Fairly simple and tame. 3.0 T: Like the nose, this is tame and unassuming. Orange and grapefruit again with a strange sourishness. Bready malts with a good bit of crystal sweetness. 3.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy. 2.5 D: Not horrible, but unimpressive on every account.

Pours a sparkling amber-orange color, with a thick, billowy cream-colored head. The aroma is bursting with bold, citrusy combination of orange and grapefruit. The flavor is likewise jammed with grapefruit, with a juicy, lingering, pithy bitterness that is only partially balanced by a light caramel sweetness and some earthy undertones. The texture is light and smooth, yet the sticky, resinous hops don’t readily fade away. Overall, although the flavor isn’t a rot-your-molars kind of bitterness, it is certainly substantially hopped, resulting in a wonderfully bright and flavorful IPA.

On tap in a plastic cup at Safeco field. Awesome. Amber with giant off-white head. Citrus with lots of pine. Resin, juicy mandarin orange, cream. Lasting hop bitterness. Medium body, good balance. Very well done.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2011
(22oz bottle from BevMo! Scottsdale). Pours a hazy apricot color with off-white head. Active carbonation. Aroma has some orange, grapefruit, and pine. Taste has a semi-sweet malt backbone with sharp bitterness. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Bitter finish. Ok, but a little unbalanced.
