3.7/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Slightly hazy, medium amber expresses a ruby glow in the light, with thick patches of off-white, cinnamon-tinted foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.

S: Rich toasty and caramel malt with spices and vinous bright fruit. Or, effervescent fruitcake with a touch of solvent.

T: Begins with heavy pale malt, slight toffee, and round fruity esters. An expansive middle harbors soft, spicy hops and some acidity that develops into a restrained but slightly astringent bitter finish--leaving a buzz of sensation in the upper corners of the mouth.

M: Medium viscosity feels too-heavy for the style, and is not elevated by the noticeable prickly carbonation.

D: This is a complex beer that comes across as more malt-focused than most others of the style, while also embracing much of the same flavor profile as Ninkasi Tricerahops. Based on these two offerings it seems that Ninkasi has decided to take a different approach to IPAs--with interesting results. IPA enthusiasts should be curious about this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Got this in a 4-pack of different Ninkasi bottles from Costco for $13. Good buy for such a high quality beer.

Caramel appearance. Slightly cloudy.
Hoppy / citrus smell
Taste is slightly bitter - not what you'd expect from something called Total Domination, though.
