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.

Backlog entry 12oz bottle pours out a hazy golden Amber topped with a sand head. Nose is Pine caramel some orange notes along with a little spice. Taste is more of the pine some mango pineapple lemon peels and a biscuit end.

Golden copper color with a fluffy white head of foam perched on top. Distinct fresh grapefruit, cereal, caramel, bright orange citrus characters weaving in and out resulting in a mild pine finish.

La sentinelle (66) - Jinan, CHINA - MAR 23, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2017 风格:American IPA

饮用温 度:约 6℃以上

外观: 干净透 明的稍 淡一些 的琥珀 色,色 度约在 10左右; 酒头泡 沫较细 腻,持 久度不 错,颜 色偏黄 一些。

香气: 强烈的 热带水 果气息 ,在这 里突出 “热带”是 因为闻 着有甜 腻的感 觉,麦 汁较浓 厚的气 息。

味道: 麦芽甜 和酒花 苦度非 常平衡 ,从一 入口一 直平衡 到尾韵 ,这也 太易饮 了吧! 麦芽甜 与酒花 苦都不 算突出 ,中等 的感觉 ,但两 者一直 相辅相 成。只 是口中 香气不 像闻着 那么强 烈,较 为清透 ,并不 突出, 在口腔 中有一 些辛辣 感。收 口较干 净清爽 ,尾韵 回苦也 不突出 ,与回 甘亦是 相伴随 。

口感: 因为麦 汁浓度 较厚, 使得酒 体入口 感觉中 等吧, 杀口感 亦中等 。酒精 度不低 却没有 酒精感 。

总体印 象:非 常平衡 易饮的 IPA!并 不突出 苦度, 麦芽甜 与酒花 相得益 彰,清 甜爽口 ,让人 一直想 不断喝 下去! !!

Golden colour. In aroma is stronger caramel tones, low oranges. Taste is caramel too, honey, dried berries, higher bitter. Sweet mouthfeel.

Good fresh look to this smells good but jeepers its like a can of oil on the aftertaste.

Moaty (12) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2016
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 that’s just splitting hairs!

jamestulloch (4369) - 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 it’s a bit too sweet and syrupy for me.

leaparsons (10809) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Bottle, Brewdog Leicester. Golden amber with an off white head. Multigrain with mango and lime. Very spicy with hot alcohol . Grass with pine. Oranges. Herbal. Nutty tea. Grapefruit and white grape. Leafy mint. Good but unbalanced.
