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.

Light amber. The nose has loads of sticky honey to it. In the mouth there is a large cereal character. The dryness is intense and ////basically the only hop character with a light dusty flavour. This is what I would think one of the original IPAs may have been like, the alcohol is apparent and the flavour hearty and moreish.

JohnnyJ (5200) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 17, 2010
22 oz bottle. Slightly cloudy amber, with white head. Grapefruit, citrusy hops, slightly metallic, and dry earth malt in the back ground. Decent IPA, but not something I would search out.

theOptimator (354) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Aroma is citrus hops and sweet. Also an earthy scent which is different and seems out of place. Appearance is golden light brown, clear, medium thick white head that lingers. Taste is citrus hops forward, but balanced with the malt. Sweet light caramel also very present. Some earthyness, but not in a bad way like the aroma. Maybe a hint of darker malts trying to shine through the hops as well. Palate is medium+. Hops bitterness lingers on the tongue after sweet maltiness fades. Overall this is a nice IPA. A bit unique and not another boring hop-bomb.

mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Bomber from BevMo. Orange in color with a touch of amber. Fluffy looking foam. Strong citrus hop aroma. A little sweetness as well Bitter and fairly dry up front. Citric bitterness seems to dominate. Finish is very dry and straightforward. Moderate bitterness throughout.

nearbeer (4481) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Lightly hazy orange-golden from a bomber. Crunchy-creamy quarter inch of foam. Dirty nose of earthy tea, caramel and light cocoa. Taste is similar mix with some grainy toasted malt, white pepper, earthy honeycomb, and dirty tea lealeaf. Medium body is soft, tingly and astringent, and a bit too frothy.

jrob21 (3163) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Leaves a big creamy white head that adds some texture and complexity to the experience. Otherwise a pretty smooth and easy to drink IPA with a nice grapefruit bitter finish and a caramel malt flavor mid palate. Adding some balance and body.

ben4321 (5259) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Location: Draft at the Blind Tiger, 10/16/10

Aroma: It has a nice hoppy nose, some grass, citrus, pine, and flowers
Appearance: Hazy orange beer with a white head and a little drippy lace
Flavor: Medium sweet flavor up-front with a medium-heavy bitter, hoppy finish to it
Palate: Light-medium bodied brew with a pretty decent drinkability to it
Overall Impression: This is a pretty nice, decently well-balanced IPA. Only my second rating from this brewery, but an enjoyable beer. I’d try more of their stuff.

luttonm (3730) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 14, 2010
20z draft around town. Tidy, pretty hazed yellow-amber pour. Bit lighter than I’d thought. Body though is competing between walls of fresh forward hops and well developed malting. It comes to a balanced conclusion with plenty of hop bitterness lingering through the end. Tasty and an interesting battle in the heart of the beer. Worth trying

JoeinDahlem (1412) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2010
Nicely dry and hoppy golden-amber beer with a full, rough, grainy malt aroma. On the dry and grassy side in hop flavor, nice for a change. Really enjoyable.
