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.

Bomber gift from my gf friend. Split up and poured into a pint glass. Paired with triscuits and goat cheese.

A&S: Heads is a pure white and has pretty good retention. Beer is a transparent semi-lively light orange color. Majority of the aroma is citrus: orange peel, lemons. Some spice and a light malt profile as well.

T&M: Similar to the aroma as far as citrus characteristics. Slight alcohol kick. A little overly bitterness in the finish. Some spiciness in the finish. Very drinkable. Has a carbonation bite but remains semi smooth.

Overall: With a name like total domination, I would expect something super intense. This beer wasn't super intense however it was still good and definitely refreshing. Nothing I seek out in particular, but I found it well put together and right for the mood I was in.

Boring as far as IPAs go. Nose is muted and I don't get much of the citrusy, fruity goodness I usually get with IPAs. Taste is just... Bitter. There's not much fruit or pine in the hop profile. There is a pleasant malty sweetness under the hoppiness. Overall, I'd say this is a rather one-dimensional and mediocre IPA.
