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. 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.

Orestes211 (8) - Alameda, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
The aroma is rather lovely smelling of grassy fields and flowers. The palate was completely lacking for me. There was very little carbonation despite the head holding for a while and the mouth feel was just like water. There is a slight flavor of mango at the beginning but that gets completely lost in the blind bitterness later. The bitter flavor is piney and resiny. The beer does look great in a glass being a nice shade of light amber with a slight haze and the head created a fine lace and gave over lots of aroma.

Good Eugene, Oregon beer. Not a bad after taste and would definitely drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a 12 oz bottle into a Het Kapittel chalice. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of fresh hops, pale malts, grains and melon notes. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of pale malts, grains, minerals, straw hops, subtle pepper, herbs & toothpaste. Overall rich, bold, and satisfying for a somewhat bitter hop lover.

Straight out of e town, a good IPA. Smooth and pretty bitter on the after taste.

Ninkasi's Total Domination is a surefire way to get a Northwestern hop fix. This brew is definitely a hop bomb. It pours gold. Pine, grass, leaves, and stone fruit aromatics. Piney, floral, and citrusy flavors. There's some pungent ginger and garlic. There's also softer touches of stone fruit, nectar, and honey. It's a chewy, sticky ale that isn't for anyone who is averse to bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2017 Might be the worst IPA I've had. Just a big blast of piney bitter hops. No balance here, just hops.

Itzjerm (3126) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2017
In bottle. Lots of building bitterness with lots of malt. Not very complex. Light citrus. Not very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.3
Grumbo (3981) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle from New Beer Distributors, New York. Pours amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit, caramel, flowers, hop, malt, orange and light yeast. Moderate sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, average to soft carbonation. Finish is creamy with increasing bitterness.

nickel (1236) - UKRAINE - AUG 29, 2017
Aroma: citrus, pines. Taste: sweet malt from the start, hoppy finish and aftertaste. Pleasant mix of citrus, herbs and grass hops. Low rating because of impossible to take off label

Bottle. Aroma of caramel and citrus. Tastes moderately bitter. Medium bodied.

3.8
bergstaden (3200) - Røros, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2017
Golden with a white head - Fruity hop aroma with some citrus - Malt body to support a hop flavour that has a good bitterness with some fruity citrsu notes - The hops with bitterness goes into the finish - This was good
