Common Ales: Ninkasi Total Domination IPA

ninkasi Total Domination IPA I struggle to pick up fragrance from the Total Domination. It does finally show up: that soft pine blend that I’d expect from something proclaiming to be a NWIPA. Still, not exactly what you expect from the title.

But where the hops really kick in is on the bitterness. This one is juuuust shy of being a tongue scraper. In this regard, I’m a little surprised to taste the restraint that went into that: they didn’t hold back on the malt, so there’s a bit of sweetness to help convince me to drink more of this beer.

I have to say, for the hop intensity, this holds up pretty well.
