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.

Bottle. Dark golden with foamy cream head and lacing. Smells resiny, grapefruittv and a touch rubbery. Flavor is initially wheaty then hoppy. Medium hoppy finish. Last vacation beer.

Ron (2729) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle after a run. Poured orange hue with creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, citrus and melon. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a nice hop bitterness that extends well through the finish. This is a really nice IPA.

phikus (96) - syracuse, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2015
The description says it all in this beer. The malt backbone is very nice, and balanced with no room to spare by classic west coast hops. Not sure how fresh this was but new to the area and seemed a few months after bottling. Probably best very fresh and could get too malty and on the sweet side with too much age.

swesson (260) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2015
From a bottle. Pours a golden hue and makes a medium white head with lacing down the glass. Aroma is a bit sour with citrus and spice. Tastes a bit of malt and sugar and hops, but not too much. A very good IPA that's not overpowering. A new favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JonMoore (1924) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle - dark gold colour with slim white head, visibly quite lively. Light citrus hop aroma. Grapefruit, citrus hop taste, sweet malts with light bitter finish. Medium bodied, quite highly carbonated. Good IPA.

Ernest (6425) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot), with notes of candy/sugar. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Pretty plain/simple/clunky...aromatically mild/faint with a sugary candy / gummy bear character. Overly syrupy-goopy sweet in the mouth, drinks more like a DIPA. A little below average.

Golden pour with a white head and lasting lacings. Light aroma with traces of hops and citrus. A very crisp body and bite. Dominant grapefruit notes and a light pale malt crispness. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

penstemon (168) - - JAN 3, 2015
Pours golden-orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, pear, slight floral, and grain. Taste is sweet maltiness, a bit of grapefruit, citrus bitterness, a bit of floral. A lot of the fruitiness is gone as compared to the aroma. Med-high lingering bitterness, really nice smoothness of palate/carbonation.

NikkTwist (1776) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Mostly clear fizzy light brown amber pour with a good amount of off-white foam. Lots of lace. Strong mix of American hops. Some mild candied malts. Not really impressed.

EdInSaltLake (703) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Fruity, spicy hops and toasty, caramel malt aroma. Apple, orange peel hop flavor. Also some spiciness -- peppery in the aftertaste. Sweet malt. Bitter aftertaste.

drjay44 (2772) - Salida, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, slowly diminishing, ivory head, with heavy lacing, over a clear light amber (SRM 9) body......nose is light pine, hints of citrus peel, light cereal malts, balance to the hops......taste is slightly floral sweet to start, becoming bitter, with heavy pine, resin, grapefruit peel dominating, balance to the hops, no esters.....mouth feel, medium body, slight alcohol warmth, moderate astringency, lively carbonation with creaminess. This is an old style American IPA. It is heavily American hop dominated, with a malt backbone that barely balances the hop bitterness. It is today, rather trite. It is a nice beer, but there are a myriad of similar ones out there, and many better. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
