Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma of crisp grapefruit, lemon, and candied orange with biscuity malt. Taste is nice bitter grapefruit, leading into a touch of caramel and biscuit finishing nice and bitter. Excellent citrusy IPA.

GABF í10. I definitely preferred the Tricerahops Double IPA from these guys but this is a great beer too. A tad too bitter for me though I can appreciate that as much as the next guy, Tricerahops was a lot more balanced to me. Ninkasi is definitely on my radar after these two strong representations.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.
