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.

kermis (12719) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle shared at Beer Temple. Pours clear dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of doughy malts upfront, very light fruits and a light vanilla touch. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. This bottle as at its drink by date which probably explains the lack of aroma hops.
