Taste is pine, , grapefruit rind, more pine. I wasn't a fan of the first bottle of the 6pack that I picked up. But I gave it a shot the next day, and it was much better, maybe it was a dud.

Smell: Very light, a teeny bit grassy, and I thought it smelled more like a pilsner, than an IPA. This IPA had what I was looking for with a second try. Solid overall.

Bottle purchased from Bring On The Beer.

A- pours a clear bright 24k gold with a 2 finger head of foam, does well with the lacing.

S- strong piney nose mixed with that;s almost like a floor wax aroma. I can tell this is going to be bitter but in a good way or a bad way?

T- very piney bitter on first sip with no sign of any balancing malt. The more I sip, the more the pine off shoots to an aspirin bitterness. Again, no sign of any malt and that could have been a saving grace. Long lasting, on the nasty side, bitterness ensues. Oh my.

M- good body and carbonation so no complaints there.

O- Not at all an IPA that suits my fancy. Bitter for bitter's sake? Me thinks so. No.

Total Domination is by far one of my favorite beers, it smells and tastes amazing. Total domination was the first IPA I had tried and it completely changed how I look at beer in general now. I have now tried many IPA's but this is truly the best yet.
