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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours a nice copper, almost orange, color. Nice head. Not much for the sniffer. Lacks punch. Seems to be missing something.

Pours a light gold straw. Nice foamy white head Not much aroma Bitterness is strong, but not quite there. This was my second beer, and the previous was southern hemisphere, and maybe the wet hop experience altered my perceptions of this. I waited and had some water, but still, not quite there. Drinkable, and i need to have this again first...

Tasted a bomber bottle. It pours a cloudy honey color with a fluffy, off-white head, and maintains really nice, resilient lacing throughout. Aroma is a pretty standard IPA scent of piney hops; good, but nothing spectacular. Taste is also pretty typical of a good, solid IPA: fresh grassy/piney notes, and a little bitterness. Itís nicely balanced--not too much jumps out at me here, except for that lacing, and some lemony overtones that are accompanied by a slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is really pleasant. Overall, if you want to enjoy a pretty straightforward, tasty IPA, this is a good choice. I have no idea what "Total Domination" means, but I definitely look forward to having this one again sometime.
