Ninkasi Brewing Company - Total Domination IPA

The Ninkasi Brewing Company is in Eugene, Oregon.  The Sumerians were among the first to ferment beer, and their associated goddess was Ninkasi.

This 6.7% ABV beer pours a dark copper-amber-orange in color.  There is a short head of creamy off-white foam that leave sticky lacing of light density down the glass.  The aroma is fruity, citrusy, apricot and cherry, some fresh brewed iced tea with lemon.  The taste follows the aromas, with the tea and citrus the most noticeable.  The beer is flavorful yet drinks light and smooth.  The finish is intensely, but refreshingly, bitter.
