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.
