What the brewers say

“Total Domination IPA has a citrusy, floral hops aroma, and big hops flavor balanced with a richness imparted by Carahell and Munich malts. This beer is a big flavorful Northwest IPA that maintains its drinkability.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Nice fruity juicy hops aroma— blueberry, raspberry, oranges, and some evergreen. Honey sweetness with a slight spicy, low phenolic note and a touch of plum.”

Flavor: “Full avor both from the body and the hops character. Loving the blue- berry! I don’t know how it got into this beer, but it’s a welcome twist. Caramel malt backbone elevates the hops to just where they need to be. Bright back-of- the-tongue bitterness and an incredibly creamy mouthfeel.”

Overall: “I really liked this IPA—it’s full of flavor, and all the flavors seemed to complement each other. A fun riff on a fruit-forward American IPA with outstanding berry character that’s interesting and unusual. Appropriate malt character and bitterness points to how well blended and integrated it is. Big juicy notes with a moderate bitterness.”
