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.

One of the finest IPA style beers I have ever indulged. Flowing, smooth flavor. Not too bitter. Unbelievable presentation upon pour. Flawless head ratio. Perfect pigmentation. Although to be fair, the aroma was lacking. This specimen is by favorite IPA's. Well worth picking up.

Significant hop flavor, but nicely balanced with an almost "grassy" undertone. Nice PNW IPA.

Strong citrus IPA with outstanding if not phenomenal taste.

Cracker, toffee malts and a huge floral pine dominant the nose. I love this beer! It totally reminds me of if Samuel Adams Boston Lager took their recipe and added American hops to make it an IPA. It even smells very similar to it now that I give it a bit more of a smell. Sweet toffee malts take over the first half of the taste and then ending in a floral piney bitterness that lingers and grows the more you drink it. So if you are a fan of Boston lager and wanted to know what it'd taste like with American hops give this beer a try.
