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 deep, cloudy orange with a finger’s worth of head that settles to a coating. A healthy amount of lacing is present and lasting. Nose is dominated by the hops - citrus (especially grapefruit) and pine, but there is some sweet malt in there as well. Taste starts with grapefruit and oranges, gets sweeter with some caramel malt and finishes dry and with some lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, a little resinous but creamy. This is pretty nicely balanced but bitter and dry wins out in the aftertaste. Total Domination is a decent and refreshing IPA that hopheads should definitely try.

22oz bomber into pint glass. Pours a golden orange with small white head. Aroma of caramel malts and a hint of hops on the nose. Moderate mouth feel with high carbonation. Taste mostly of malts and some hops. For the price not bad however not a superb beer.

Bottle @ BCTC 2010. Gold, white head. Nose is piney, caramel maltiness, a floral spring field, some grapefruit. Flavor is slightly tart malt, pine, strongly bitter. Lingering pine & malt finish.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2010
22 oz bomber gifted by Sudsy Maggie. Cloudy orange pour with a nice fluffy white head. Beautiful lacing Floral and slightly piney hops aroma. Sharp, hoppy bite with more of the floral and piney notes. Not much in the way of a malty balance. Finish has more of the sharp hoppy bite.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 1, 2010
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.

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 26, 2010
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 I’m always happy to have it.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2010
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 doesn’t necessarily stand out in a sea of other very good IPA’s.

shablinky (13) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2010
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.

mpersinger (360) - , California, USA - JUL 9, 2010
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 there’s some residual sweetness. The bright citrus hop flavor leads crashing to a bitter finish that is resiny, a bit harsh and lingering
