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.

sloth (2831) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Thin offwhite head with fair retention and lace. Lightly hazy copper/orange hued ale. Nose is flowery, citrusy, gently. Body is lightly medium, creamy smoth, soft carbonation, faint resin. Nicely balanced with lightly sweet malts and citrusy hops, lil bready and yeasty. Dry finish with a decent hop bite. An easy quaffer. Props to 5000 for the bottle.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours a nearly clear pale amber with a 3 finger, creamy ivory head. Aroma is sweet orange, floral hops, lemon zest, doughy yeast, toast, caramel and a touch of cereal grain. Flavor is immediately citrus and spicy hops, pear heavy tree fruit, more doughy yeast, a touch of stone fruit, grainy malt, sweet caramel and some bitter citrus hops along with a nice mineral note to the finish. Palate is medium body creamy throughout and has a nice, moderate, blanketing carbonation. Pretty nice IPA all around, Id probably make this an occasional purchase if it were available locally.

Light amber. Wow! Aroma/Flavor is a blast of orange, lemon, 5-alive citrus drink. Yum, reminds me a bit of Bells 2 hearted. Very very good. Medium body. Ill be getting this again.

SDalkoholic (2365) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle from Bevmo: Created a thick fluffy layer of head while the liquid appeared as a dense golden straw color. The aroma is spicy and soapy with a combination of zesty yeast and typical west coast hops with a heaping squeeze of citrus. Flavors are moderate and serve a honey oat breaded malts with a piney base of hops and citrus. Sort of soapy in the aftertaste, but other than that a standard ipa.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2011
[Tap] Pours a dirty golden color with a thick and lasting head. Typical pinecone and grapefruit nose is strong, but not over the top. Good citrus and pine backbone is moderately bitter. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel is pleasant. Blood orange and bitter resinous sap in the finish. Solidly bitter and really tasty.

keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Solid IPA but too thick & malty for 6.7% ABV. Great Divides Titan IPA is 6.8% and is much lighter. That said, the beer is good, even if on the imperial side in taste
