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

Zymurgeist2 (2034) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 22, 2013
On tap at Harrys Hofbrau in The RC. Massive grapefruit and orange aroma. Beautiful. Pours a pale gold that is clear with a full white head of small bubbles and nice lacing. Pronounced citrus (orange/grapefruit) and freshly cut grass balance well with above average bitterness and slight malt that could lend more support. Finishes slightly dry.

Moaty (7) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2016 does not count
West coast "mthr fkr"!!!!!! this is classic San Diego IPA; piney and resiny with a balanced caramel sweetness. Mr trump can I get a green card? Only thing letting this down is a thin mouthfeel but thats just splitting hairs!

jamestulloch (3785) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2016
Bottle at BrewDog Edinburgh. Hazy amber body with a thick off-white head. Low carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of pine and caramel. Flavour of orange and menthol with a hint of marzipan. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. It drinks well for the strength but its a bit too sweet and syrupy for me.
