This was the first I've seen of anything from Tap It Brewing Co. on the shelves here in IL so I figured the IPA should be fresh. An aggressive pour produces a dusky orange body with ample carbonation rushing to the tightly bubbled, oatmeal colored head. The head becomes creamy as it sits and leaves behind some spotty lacing.

The aroma is pretty ho-hum. A heavy dose of brown sugar sprinkled grapefruit leads the way with more brown sugar than grapefruit. Caramel and Saltine crackery malts are also pretty upfront in that order of intensity. As it warms an earthy character emerges. This IPA smells alright but if the nose is any indication it'll will be a little more balanced than I prefer.

I like the flavor profile more than I expected. The grapefruit is more of the candied rind variety than the brown sugar coated. The caramel malts are light and work well with the grapefruit. This is a pretty balanced pretty straightforward but, ultimately, enjoyable IPA. There's not much bitterness on the first few drinks but the bitterness builds to moderate halfway through a glass.

Medium bodied with a slick feel and moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty soft and a dryness creeps in a few seconds after the swallow. There's absolutely no discernable alcohol which is pretty impressive for a 7% IPA.

Tap It Brewing Co's IPA is an all around enjoyable beer. I don't usually care for IPAs of this nature, the very balanced variety, but this is an easy drinker and although not complex it's juicy enough to finish a bottle.
