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.

Strong citrus pine hop aroma, orange, grapefruit, pine and wood. Pours a clear golden amber with big fluffy lasting white head. Fruity floral hop flavor, berry, flower, orange, pine with bready and caramel malt character Medium full bodied with medium co2, lingering hop bitterness. Enjoyable IPA. I like the hop combo. Not overly bitter either ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
