My friend and I went to the Orange County Fair today and we each got a beer. I got the Ninkasi Total Domination and he got the Valiant Criterion.

Of the Ninkasi Total Domination, I noted it had a bitter, grassy taste.

But other than that, I liked the citrusy taste of the Criterion (26 IBU) more than the bitter taste of the Total Domination (65 IBU).

Multiple hops collide in balanced perfection, dominating the senses and achieving total satisfaction. From the Pacific Northwest, birthplace of the modern IPA, comes a beer whose name says it all.

Tasting Notes
Total Domination IPA has a citrusy, floral hop aroma, and big hop flavor balanced with a richness imparted by Carahell and Munich malts. This beer is a big flavorful Northwest IPA that maintains its drinkability, and as such, has garnered great admiration from the novice craft drinker and the seasoned hop-head alike.
