3.69/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

clean amber pour with 2 fingers of white head giving off nice amounts of lacing. lots of carbonation bubbles shooting rapidly down the center. smells of pineapple, cereal, orange peel. the flavor is very citrusy sweet with enough earthy bitterness to even out the palate hop-wise, lots of bready backbone, with a soapy after-taste. medium body with moderate carbonation. a little watery.

i'd been wanting to try this one out for a while since it's supposedly one of the better ninkasi ales? i wasn't all that impressed to be honest, but i also was not let down. it's a decent ipa, but i was expecting more of a hop bomb from the west coast.

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.
