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.

On tap. Clear amber, thin white cap. Nice lacing. Aroma is outstanding - grapefruit, tropical fruit accompanied by a heavy dose of pine. Taste starts sweet, but quickly transitions to citrusy hop bitterness. Finishes dry. Medium body with crisp carbo. Legit IPA.

It’s a pretty solid IPA. Nice alcohol and well balanced. A sweet body, hoppy finish. Pretty sessionable.

Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Golden hued beer that has a white soap suds head. Light lacing. Aroma is classic west coast IPA with rich sweet caramel and fruit. Taste is, too, but with pale malts. I taste pineapples and grapefruit. A little spice and plenty of tropical fruit. Not very much citrus. Floral notes and melons late. It is just a bit earthy. Good stuff.

hayduke (4435) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook chat. Pours copper with a white head. Really nice lacing. Nose is citrus and floral hops. . Medium in body and a resinous mouth feel . Flavor is citrus and floral over over a nice malt rich caramel malt backbone. The finish is dry and bitter. Tropical fruit appears as this warms. And as Dave points out so do melons. This is a classic west coast IPA. Tasty, Hoppy. Bitter. Good.

Intense hoppy aromas of citrus, pine, grass and lemon peel. Some licorice in the back as well. Medium bodied with a light carbonation ,smooth mouthfeel. On the palate it tastes similar to what it smells. Fresh and fruity with a nice bitter kick! Bitter finish that stays around pretty long.

Pretty big pine resin and citrus aroma and flavor. Fairly bitter too. Didn’t seem terribly fresh but still liked it - maybe get it from the source one day soon :)

zgaier (1842) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Bomber. Pours a hazy copper orange with a beige head and aroma of resin, pine, and hops. Taste is bittersweet and hoppy, with pine, resin, citrus, and grapefruit notes into the dry, bitter finish.

jjgmd (1909) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2016
With Z, maybe the first beer of 2016 , surprisingly so, pours a deep rusty copper pour with a beige head. Nose is straight up bitter sweet citrus with pine and resin. Taste is bittersweet with deep pleasant citrus , followed by stong pine and resin. Finishes on the same tasting notes with a bitter dry moderately long ending. Nicely done ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

FireGlider (369) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 29, 2015
Lively orange color with medium white head. Smell is citrus but not to strong. Citrus and hop aroma. Taste is light to medium bitter. Medium body with nice medium lasting aftertaste. Really refreshing.

Diabobale (426) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - DEC 29, 2015
Dal colore dorato carico, leggermente velato, con un bel cappello di schiuma bianca, molto fine e assai persistente, questa ipa, ancora fresca (4 mesi), presenta note molto agrumate (arancia amara e mandarino) e fruttate (albicocca), con qualche punta resinosa. Il dramma però è la presenza del malto troppo evidente: quelli caramellati rilasciano troppe note dal sapore di carruba. Ha un corpo tendente al watery, con una buona carbonazione. Al palato ritroviamo le stesse note del naso, ma con una marcata presenza dell’amaro. La bevuta è scorrevole e il finale molto secco lascia il palato abbastanza pulito.
