Total Domination IPA
A: Dark straw/orange honey color, rocky off white head and a good amount of carbonation. Beer is hazy.
S: Hops, Orange, peel, more hops, bitterness, maybe a hint of earthiness and just a drop of grapefruit juice. Wanted more, but still a good smell.
T, MF & D: Sweet and creamy, with a decent amount of hop oil. The bitterness pricks the tongue for a good long moment bit isn't overwhelming. There is a touch of grapefruit that grows a little on the finish/aftertaste, but for the most part there is hops/sweetness/bready malt/bitterness. The sweetness leans towards citrusy bitterness rather than piney astringency, but all in all this beer is well rounded and balanced.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.
A- Poured a fairly clear orange color with soapy off-white head that left no lace.
S- Some citrusy hops, herbal hops, and sweet oatmeal notes.
T- Lots of sweet oatmeal notes, bready, some citrusy, herbal, and earthy hops. Moderate to high bitterness.
M- Prickly carbonation, lighter bodied, and semi-dry finish.
O- Hard to believe I have given a proper review to the most popular beer in Eugene. It is not really what I look for in an IPA, lots of the herbal and earthy bitterness that I expect in hoppy Ninkasi beers that just is not really my thing. It was one of the first beers I had when I moved to Oregon and seemed fitting to give it a proper one month before I move away from Oregon. Glad to see Ninkasi's growth and they are an easy brewery to support since they do so many great things in the community, but just not my kind of IPA.

Pours a nice amber color with a good amount of head and leaves nice lacing in the glass. Very little hop aroma but overall good balance between bitterness and body. It would benefit from more flavor in the middle. Mouthfeel is as expected.
Not my first choice but isn't bad in a pinch.
