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.

Bottle. Pours with a hazy golden body and a good sized white head. Aroma of grapefruit, grass, melon, and some caramel. Extremely faint hint of being lightstruck, which is odd, because I bought it from a store (a BevMo) that has been open for less than 3 weeks. Taste is dry, grainy, and sharply bitter pine. A lot more bitter than it is aromatic. Astringently bitter. Lively bubbles and dry. Not a real pleasant IPA to be perfectly honest.

Amber, decent fluffy white head, aroma of standard NW citrus hops, some floral and pine. Flavor is as expected. This is a well crafted if not imaginary IPA, we drink this at lunch a couple times a month and Iím always happy to have it.

Hits all the right IPA notes. Hoppy aroma, deep golden-orange appearance. Strong bitter beginning and a bitter finish with a bit of maltyness. Good IPA, but doesnít necessarily stand out in a sea of other very good IPAís.

A nice hearty IPA very hoppy. A little heavy on the caramel malts for me. but not bad. I prefer it to the Ninkasi Tricerihops. It has all the hops and less malt.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2010
Aroma of bubble-gum, sweetness and hops. Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Flavor of soapy, fruity hops with sweetness and mild bitterness. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Not too impressive.

From bomber, this one is golden and slightly hazy, revealing only a slight hop aroma. Malt notes are present, flavor is somewhat grassy and brassy, and thereís some residual sweetness. The bright citrus hop flavor leads crashing to a bitter finish that is resiny, a bit harsh and lingering

I picked this up in bomber form while on vacation in Gold Beach, OR. Very happy with my purchase! Appearance is the quintessential IPA, super bright cloudy golden (I know that sounds like polar opposites but thatís what it looks like) with a big creamy head. Aroma is more of the citrus hops variety. Taste is rather bitter, pretty crisp, hoppy but not too strong on the hops, great balance. Thereís nothing that particularly sets this apart from other IPAís, itís just a really really good IPA.

Sammy (9443) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2010
Cloudy yellow body that left lots of lace. Bitterness is certainly there, but it wasnít so drinkable or balanced or complex.On whole, anaverage beer and only fair IPA. They sold the bottle, I rate it.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2012 Pours hazy orange with a foamy white head that recedes fairly quickly. Aroma of mint, herby hops, slightly vegetal, maybe a little old. Taste is also minty with some resinous bitterness that lasts a while. I would prefer the body be a little thicker to support the bitterness or at least have more sweet citrus hops. I think I need to try this on tap sometime..... Just bought another bottle. 12 oz. Aroma is not very distinct, orange rind, grain. Taste is a little more bold, decently bitter, some mineral, not much floral or aromatic hop. Again, I am a little let down.3.3.....Here we go again, this time a bomber from All Things Wine. Finally, I get what seems to be a nice fresh bottle, Thanks Wayne. hazy gold, big frothy beige head. Aroma is a nice mix of citrus and earthy, woody, pine, along with a nice malt sweetness. Taste is well balanced, a great IPA and a great price as well. Kind of a maltier IPA than most, but there is a lot of pine bitterness to level it out.
