Here at Tap It Brewing we take a unique approach toward crafting an India Pale Ale and challenge the current status quo. The goal? To craft an India Pale Ale hoppy in flavor and aroma that goes down smooth. We utilize the avant-garde method of First Wort Hopping, the technique of adding hops to the kettle before boil. This creates a harmonious explosion of hop aroma and flavor noticeable throughout the tasting experience. Fragrances of tangerine and grapefruit entice the nose. A thick hazy rich head leads drinkers toward an experience rich in citrus and earthy flavors ending with a smooth, sticky finish. The complex floral and citrusy tones from Citra and Simcoe hops welcome you, while two more hop varietals mate smoothly with four malt varieties for an unmatched aroma. Altogether, a crisp pleasurable full bodied taste. A word of caution: Drinking Tap It IPA around friends may cause envy.

Prufrockstar (1647) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2014
12 oz bottle thanks to Wittales. Clear light amber pour, white head. Aroma: spicy and herbal, pines and thick caramel. Taste: Moderately sweet, a little bready, caramel with sharp bitter finish. Palate: medium+ body, slick/thick texture, average carbonation. Overall: had never heard of this one before. Pretty typical IPA with a few months on it (I presume - no bottle date).

mcberko (10569) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops, not a whole lot else – big pine and a thin malt backing. Flavour is identical, with monolithic piney hop notes, some juiciness, and a bready caramel malt backing. Nice pine-dominated IPA, but nothing overly special.

On draft. Orange juice. Not beery orange juice, just orange juice-as-IPA. Faint chocolate malts as it warms, but overwhelmingly sweet, sweet OJ. Too sweet, too one note.

(bottle) Wanted to sample a local brewer while passing through the California Central Coast on vacation. This was a nice find. Decent IPA with grapefruit and citrus flavors. A nice find.

lusikka (7622) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a copper amber cololur with a frothy white head. Aroma of floral hops, some herbs and grass. Flavour of bready malts, floral bitterness, sweetness, herbs and quite rich grapefruit notes. Medium bodied. Dry, lingering bitter, slightly sweet finish. Good, but not as fresh as I hoped for.

Saeglopur (1337) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle from AlesbyMail.co.uk. Amber, slghtly hazy body, with a small, creamy, white head, that won’t last long. Aroma is a lot of peach, also grapefruit, pine, passion fruit, berries, caramel. Tastes of citrus, pine, peach, some tropical fruits, grass, caramel, tea, some biscuit. Mouthfeel is medium to light, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes smooth, bitter, a bit dry, with pine, lemon zest, grass and some sweet malts. Enjoyable, well balanced and easy to drink IPA, with nice fruits, bitter citrus and pine and equal, quite multifarious malt notes. Maybe the taste could be a bit more hoppy, but it has a short best before date, so this may be the reason.
