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.

jigglyjock (163) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2011
An softer, well crafted IPA. Has a lot of hop flavor with out it being over the top bitter. Reminds me of the Jasmin IPA by by Elysian.

blankboy (6359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2015
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy orange-copper with a small lasting frothy white head. Slightly mild aroma of citrus hops, alcohol, bready malt, fruit and a hint of herbs. Fruity, hoppy flavour with a touch of alcohol and a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. An O.K. IPA.

Sampled at Hawthorne Hophouse - Pours clear gold. The taste has caramel malt, nectar fruit and is a bit medicinal. Decent IPA.

Bottle. Hazy golden orange beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of apricots, caramel, citrus, green hops and pineapple. Flavor is spicy with notes of citrus, pine needles, apricot and caramel. A bit too bitter and unbalanced.

RCx240 (99) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
Pours golden amber, foamy off white head, decent retention but not much lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, resin, pine, oranges, and a hint of molasses. Taste is tart, grapefruit and citrus, finishing with a lingering, floral bitterness. Body is normal, texture is slightly sticky. Great beer.

thebeertourist (4972) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle. Clearish amber, good head. Refreshing, slightly tart citrus nose. Good dry hoppiness, citrus all along, some soothing toffee, hints of acidity. Nice.

Ron (2774) - 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 (264) - 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 (1939) - 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 (6484) - 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.
