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

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.

Idiosynkrasie (3741) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2014
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey, deep golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney, citrusy hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit, orange, tangerine, caramel malty, biscuity background. Taste is minimally biting bitter hoppy, piney, hints of grapefruit, orange, orange zest, slightly light-bodied caramel malty basis; not boring of course, but somehow monotonous, narrow, one-sided, too clean.

PorterPounder (5473) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Las Vegas, NV - Total Wine - Summerlin - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling light copper with a snow white head, nice lacing. Solid, fresh spruce aroma. Flavor has a solid citrusy bitter backbone, some mango fruitiness, just a hint of caramel sweetness. Crisp, refreshing mouthfeel with a decent thickness,

Pours crystal clear with off white head. Aromas of citrus, wet hops and pine. Taste of piney hops, toasted nuts and caramel. Overall not bad IPA maybe a little safe.

Clear orange with a two-finger frothy white head and light lacing. Aromas of citrus - orange -, apricot, peach, and floral hops. Flavors are similar, featuring bitter citrus hops, honey and caramel. Light body, oily texture, lively carbonation and a clean bitter finish.

gunnar (5256) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Thistle News, Aberdeen. Pours clear deep golden with a big creamy white head. Inviting fruity and flowery hops aroma. Taste is moderate sweet mealy malts, with a decent crisp floral hop addition, dry lingering finish, nice.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2014
Flaske: Endnu en standard IPA. Duften er fyldig amerikansk humle der er begyndt at glide lidt sammen for mig. Ikke synderlig interessant men fantastisk at man kan få craft beers på den lokale KOA, altså campingplads. Jeg er helt vild med USA og især Califfornien.

Lightly hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Light thin malts, touch of thin and sweet cream. Light orange hops, fresh and slightly tangy. Bitter-sweet pine. Touches of floral things and lime. Light semi dry finish with a piney lime linger and hop spice. Good stuff.
