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.

Bomber at home. Nice solid pour, very clear beer with a medium head and soapy. Good fresh aroma--agree with description in regards to citrusy aroma and big flavor, clean palate. Good NW IPA, well done.

adamnowek (557) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
Hoppy and bitter withy the typical trappings of a well-hopped IPA: floral aromas and a drying texture. Sadly, it comes out a little bland.

Pretty boring, which was in itself, surprising. I was expecting more. It’s just an average, ok Ipa.

BlackHaddock (4738) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
9th May 2015: bomber into a stemmed tulip (twice) at my daughters house in Orange County. No sediment in the first pour, still a cloudy looking orange, the head a white blanket that soon became a thin wispy covering and a collar. The second pour I allowed the sediment into the glass: murkier and even more hoppy! Floral hop aroma with a spicy/piny touch, some citrus traces also. Hops to the fore in the taste also, crisp, bitter and sharp in nature. Gets more bitter as it warms in the glass: this is a real hop bomb in every sense, no room for any maltiness from what I could taste. A bit of a hop monster for my delicate English palate, but I really enjoyed it’s boldness and hoppy nature. I must be warming to these ’West Coast’ hoppy brews.

rejtable (1685) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
Sample at bacon and beer. Pours dark gold with lots of head and some lacing. Nose is fruity with lots of earth bitterness, some mango. Taste medium bitter, light/med sweet. Mouth lively carbonation and full body.

Maybe this is newb comment to say but the aroma mocks the smell of a nicely trimmed fresh bud straight off of a Mexican marijuana cartel farm located deep in the California mountains. Appearance= golden yellow. Taste is rich in grapefruit. Very happy, I mean hoppy with faint lemon signatures. Palate is so bitter and harsh it makes you want to punch a baby. Overall 18/20 when chink-eyed but 12/20 when sober. Thanks.

Slightly orange-yellow. Crisp hop flavor backed with floral spice, pepper, pine and citrus. Medium bitterness and bubbly. Excellent drinkability for a hoppy IPA.
