COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Day 9 2013 Advent. I have not heard of this brewery but the beer looks interesting. Crisp dark amber. Light head with nice lace. Golden malt scent. Kind of delicate golden malt and hop candy flavour. Could drink all day. Very balanced.

b3shine (4433) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle to taster (thanks brew3crew). Looks solid; a transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of bitter hops with a nice, light West Coast mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

CapFlu (4363) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
Foamy white last head atop a clear non-carbonated light orange body. Nose of mild Seville oranges. Nice malt base and a light citrus hoppiness. Great all around IPA.

This is good, but the like the others I’m not wow’ed. The finish is better than the body, a theme at this brewery. Some bite, but not as much as you’d usually expect in SoCal.

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2013
355ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head settling slowly to reveal some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is floral and citrus (grapefruit and tangerine?) with some caramel. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a caramel malt sweetness. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Nicely balanced IPA which is very flavorful and definitely worth a sampling.

IrishBoy (3752) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 14, 2012
12 oz bottle from Santa Margarita. Nose is citrus with a lot of caramel malt. Clear orange with a medium offwhite head that laces heavily. Flavor is bitter with a lemony note and lots of malt sweetness. Pretty modest IPA.

Golden color with a foamy off white head. Big grapefruit, and tropical fruit hop nose. Sweet beer with caramel, candied grapefruit rind, apricot, bitter orange, and sticky hop resin. NIce IPA and it goes well with the pizza.
