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.

IBGF 2009: Deep golden and orangy hue with very good head and lace. The aroma has notes of resiny, grassy and a bit catty vapours, some apricot and mango esters, bready malts and a hint of minerals. The taste is acidic fruits, resiny piney hops with the malt a background player. Dry and chalky finish. The mouth feel is chewy and moderately aggressive, the is a bit of a put off. Not bad but honestly expected more.

Got this bottle at Samís in Chicago about 6 weeks ago. Having this one after the Tricerahops and itís not nearly as good. This poured with a white small head and no lace. Clear amber color. Hoppy malty nose. Flavor is pretty straightforward and similar to the aroma. Body is kind of watery. Finish is ok, nothing special.

7/18/2009: Ninkasi Total Domination is golden colored with toasted malt, toffee flavors, and a moderate level of earthy bitterness. Solid IPA.

Nice amber orange color with a biege/off-white head that has some lacing. Lots of pine and hop aromas. The hops hit the tongue and linger to the finish. It is a quality IPA. Cheers.

22 oz. bottle from market of choice while visiting family in Or. Pours a golden color with a nice white head. A soure citrus aroma. Taste is bitter with a grapefruit hint to it. An average IPA for me.

Tap. Great balanced IPA. Nice aromas of ciitrus and pine with floral notes. Honey notes round out the bitterness in the finish

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Bomber. Poured relatively clear medium golden with a short, sticky cap of white head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit and pineappley notes upfront with some spicy pine over softer pale and caramel malts.. solid character, but at a good, not great level. The flavor had pale and a little bit of honey malts on the back (sweet maltage overall).. bitterness was moderate-to-high in the form of grapefruit and floral character.. decently-balanced on the finish with spicy, fragrant bitterness and very sweet malts. Medium-ish bodied and sweet on the palate.. very drinkable.. lacking something, though.

Hopcrazy (27) - Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2009
bottle from New Seasons Market. Flat nose - barely a hint of hoppiness. Taste was balanced but weak. Disappointed after the tricerahops, which I think is much closer to total dominationís name.

Boring aroma. Cool orange color was most unique trademark of this beer. Taste not memorable.
