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.

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 (4670) - 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.

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 (5396) - 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.

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 (1438) - 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.

Bottle from my buddy Fred. Pours slightly hazy orange-amber with white head and nice lacing. Nose of grapefruit, citrus, mild resin, and sweet malts. Similar taste, but fuller. Great hop flavors, and nicely backed up with malt. Very good.

~Resinous grapefruity hop aroma with caramel maltiness in back. ~Pours a very cloudy orange gold color with creamy lasting white head. ~Resinous grassy grapefruit spice hop flavor with caramel malt as backbone. ~ Med full body, med CO2, lasting grassy bitter finish. ~ Enjoyable IPA. I like that it isnt over the top with citrus hops. There are some other hop flavors in there as well.

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma of crisp grapefruit, lemon, and candied orange with biscuity malt. Taste is nice bitter grapefruit, leading into a touch of caramel and biscuit finishing nice and bitter. Excellent citrusy IPA.

GABF ’10. I definitely preferred the Tricerahops Double IPA from these guys but this is a great beer too. A tad too bitter for me though I can appreciate that as much as the next guy, Tricerahops was a lot more balanced to me. Ninkasi is definitely on my radar after these two strong representations.
