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.

mcberko (10585) - 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.

Dogbrick (10039) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2013
On draught at Freakin’ Frog in Las Vegas. This beer is a clear amber-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and roast malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, malt and pine. The finish is hoppy with a grapefruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Tap at Original Spike’s in SLO. Pours a clear deeper amber with a medium, off white head. Nice, decent lacing. Nose is quite nice: fresh orange, citrus hops, flowers, caramel. Taste is quite aggressively nutty bitter, thick brazil nut and walnut skin, decent caramel background. Much better than expected. Fairly quenching, clean, no off flavors. No soap or diacetyl thankfully. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (8857) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, hints of pine, grapefruit, hints of orange and lemon notes, slight grass and pine. Taste is a nice mix of grapefruit, orange and citrus notes, touch of biscuit and caramel, hints of slight grass and floral notes. Nicely done, drinkable but very tasty.

BVery (8692) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bomber from Binny’s in Schaumburg, IL. This must be well aged or badly mishandled, because no way this bottle would be a 90+ rated beer. Clear yellow-orange pour with a small soapy white head. Cardboard, stale hops, a bit of herbal - I can’t get much of the good stuff others found in this. Damn shame.
