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.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2009
From Brewsters Deli, in Pt Roberts WA. My first Ninkasi. Poured a rocky white head above a hazy coppery-orange body. Aroma was strongly hopped and wasn’t the taste just the same. Solid mouth and argeeable finish.

MartinT (8247) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Sweet cereals provide a portly body for this effervescent India Pale Ale, while peppery, resinous hop flavors and bitterness establish residence on the back of the tongue.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the cloudy orangey blend.
-This is not too aromatic for an IPA with such a name.
-The hops are also citrusy, but overly so.
-That hop bitterness is quite lengthy.

Bottle.

Draft. Pours cloudy golden amber in color with white head. Aroma mild citrus hops and sweet malt. Taste citrus hops and malt very well balanced with bitter finish.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 30, 2009
It’s like marmalade in a glass. Very quaffable, and more English style IPA than American to me.

JaBier (5080) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2009
22oz bottle. Opaque orange pour with a medium white head. Sweet malt aroma with some orangy and piney hops. A bit of honey sweetness up front with lots of orange hop character before a balanced bittersweet finish. Very good.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle, acquired in Seattle. Fairly bright orange pour with good amount of white head. Aroma is floral and earthy hops, but not very pungent; pale belgian malt. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet with herbal hops.

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a nice, but short lived, off-white head. Left some lacing on the glass. Grapefruit aroma with nice bitter hops in the flavor. Nice west coast ipa.

Tmoney99 (11358) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Draft sample at IBGF Summer 2009. Poured dark golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate floral and citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met and good addition to fest.

Draft. Pours medium amber with an off-white mildly green-tinted head, decent lacing. Ginger/citrus hops, bright and orangey, a bit of floral/perfume, yeast. Nice broad palate, plenty of citrus and pine, well-balanced.

A delicious IPA. Oregon does IPAs! Very hoppy and flavorful. Pours dark golden with a nice head.
