3.6/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

My first offering from Ninkasi pours a hazy burnt orange. The eggshell head is modest, yet the retention is admirable.

The nose comes through quite balanced, but not overly potent on either end. Tropical citrus tones from the Amarillo green guys are subtle but add slight sweetness to a mostly herbal hop bill.

Balance continues through the flavor, yet the intensity is bumped up a notch. Loads of 2 Row add a doughy caramel backbone that keeps up with resiny hop flavors.

Perhaps the best trait of the beer is it's thick viscous body. It takes the throat a couple tries to pull it down, yet carbonation keeps it bright and crisp without being distracting.

It may not completely dominate my taste buds, but I have a good feeling about the rest of the beers in this 4 pack.

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.
