12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Bubbly white head, hazed pale amber hue. Juicy nose with fruity overtones, both hops and mild alcohol have infiltrated my nostrils. Smooth throughout, balanced hop bitterness is just the beginning ... citrus pith, peppery, powdered aspirin, and pungent. Big juicy kiss of exotic fruit in the middle with a bit of alcohol in tow.

Not half bad for an IPA, not like the rest and seem more of a old school American IPA before the whole hop thing became a pissing match. Decent drinking.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #48 (Jan 2011):

Quick to foam from a moderate pouring, the epic-sized head dissipates real slow. Amber golden color is completely hazed over. Grapefruit rind, taffy and walnut skin in the nose ... lots of hops, but the yeast shakes things up. Slick medium body, carbonation goes from massive head to nearly nothing. Bitterness is borderline astringent though a toffee flavor and ester alcohol distract the palate enough to produce a disjointed balance. Yeasty and fruity in the middle with a plainly bitter finish. Unfortunately, the yeast dominates a bit too much here--you can taste the potential if the yeast was tapered back.

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.
