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.

BOLTZ7555 (2985) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2010
10 karat liquid gold pour with a 1/2 inch eggshell head that left some lacing. Aroma is lemon peel, orange pith, and grapefruit tart. Missing subtle sweetness to balance the brew out. Seems unnecessarily sharp and bitter without caramel / malt. Only engaged certain segments of the palate while leaving out others. Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

NachlamSie (3022) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2010
On tap at Clyde Common. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild, really. Citrus is here like orange and mango. Woody bitterness is apparent with a decent malty sweetness. The palate is average for an IPA. Upon taking a sip, I decide the hop selection seems European. Hearty wood bitterness is all over but then I notice juicy pineapple and complex citrus flavors. Finish lets some herbal notes out.

alexanderj (3427) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2010
Bottle; poured a glowing orange/amber with a big frothy, white head. Aroma was delicious. Citrus, earth, fruit; some caramel, yeast and bread. Reminds me of the NW. Flavor was expected, but quite nice. Earthy, fruity, spicy NW hops. NW IPAs don’t normally blow my mind, but they are all normally really nice.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 7, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #212. Pours orange with a slight haze, I think my fridge might be a little too cold and that’s contributing to the haze on some of my beers. Decent lacing from an off-white head, nice retention as well. Slight citrus aroma, pretty nice actually, not overbearing. . Upfront bitterness that quickly faded into a pretty smooth moderately balanced IPA. Not bad, one of the better Ninkasi beers I’ve had. (1167)

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - APR 7, 2010
Sampled in a 22oz bottle. Pours light brownish amber. Has a big head on it that is pretty clear white. It drinks really nice. The hop levels are nice. Not too complex but really well made.

Strykzone (5812) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2010
Thanks Hayduke! This beer pours a clear golden with an exceptional amount of carbonation floating up. A thick and long lasting orange tinted head never got smaller than one finger. Nose is tart citrus fruit and flowers, light spice and caramel. Flavor is delightfully complex. Passion fruit, grain, toffee. As the beer warms grapefruit emerges bringing with it dryness. The finish was a bit thin for my liking but it brought out some nice fruit notes in the long aftertaste. A truly unique and interesting IPA.

DuffMan (8152) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2010
Bottle, shared with parksy. Pours a hazy reddish orange, aroma is remarkably reminiscent of ripe papya (pau pau) and low spicy resin. Flavours are much the same, with equal balance between sweet candyish malt, tropical fruit hops, and moderate bitterness.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2010
Bomber. Appearance is a bright orange golden with an inch of milky white head. Aroma is resinous hops, ruby red grapefruit and pine. Taste begins with potent hops and intense bitterness followed by some toasted malt sweetness, grapefruit, orange peel and pine. It finishes slightly creamy and tangy with a bitter citrus aftertaste. Overall flavor is aggressively bitter and hoppy with a harsh citrus acidity quality to it. Not quite Total Domination but it’s refreshing nonetheless and has an interesting mix of citrus, hops and bitterness. It just doesn’t quite stand up to the great West Coast IPAs.

glassmongoose (1) - Alabama, USA - MAR 31, 2010 does not count
Ninkasi IPA took me by surprise (author pauses to go crack beer in order to better describe it) with its heady mix of sweet and bitter. The bitterness is not overwhelming. It has, dare I say, complexity. Even better, the IPA brings to mind a phrase beloved to me: ’beer sandwich’. Not because it’s overly filling, but because it allows you to actually imagine that it might contain nutrients.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma: Kolschy, grainy with some slight sweetness and citrus. Taste: Soapy, grainy, finishes with dry malt and metallic hops. Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Overall: I didn’t really enjoy this beer that much. I am a big fan of their Double Red, so I am excited to try Tricerahops.
