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.
2012 GABF Gold Medal Winner for American IPA

b3shine (5425) - Indiana, 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.

Bottle shared by brew3crew in Dec. 2012. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had dank hops, earthy notes, light resin, moderate citrus hops, toasted bready malts with hints of caramel. Decent enough ipa from a previously unknown brewery.

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.
