2 finger off white khaki head, good retention and lots of soapy lacing. The brew is a classic burnt orange IPA gold.

CItrus, grapefruity, piny notes with some astringency. Booze is present. A hint of something sour. Brown sugary, bready malt base.

More character in the taste than the nose. Nice juicy, bitter hops with a very oily mouthfeel. There is a particular tartness in this brew that's hard to desrcribe, maybe from the hop variety. Notes of lemon pith. Malt bill is understated, and the hops come through. Lots of interesting flavors at the back of the palate, very long and dry finish.

It's a tart, sharp and bright IPA, very well worth a buy.

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.
