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.

Light orange pour with a white head. Light herbal notes followed by tons of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and tangerine. Floral notes in the background, some sweet bread, and a hint of caramel. Nice bitterness on the palate to balance the little bit of caramel sweetness. Plenty of fruity hop character. Great citrus notes and a light tropical quality. Very enjoyable.

Benzai (11364) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle shared by my uncle Ino. Hazy medium to dark orange color, medium sized off-white head that diminishes quite quickly. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, strong pine and piney hops. Taste moderate to heavy malts, piney hops and bitter hops again. A little old (best before date Jan 2015) so maybe less fruity but pretty nice nonetheless.
