Maybe I'm a sucker for all the citrus notes and flavors of this beer but I think it's a delicious balance of the power you want and expect from an American ipa and a lighter crisp floral bouquet beer that a lesser ipa can't provide. Fully endorse it. A lot of alcohol but I don't find it gratuitous at all.

The Tap It IPA is typical of most IPAs that have elevated alcohol. The beer pours a cloudy orangish copper with foamy white head that is not leaving much of a lace. The scent is mostly sweet malt with some fresh hop presence that is leaning slightly piney. The taste is a nice balance between bitter hop and sweet malt with some pine backdrop. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer.

Cutting to the chase, this is a great beer. A golden beer with a good head that laces very well and lingers. You can smell the hops but also some sweetness that is very pleasant. Upon tasting, grapefruit and other citrus hits the tongue and really turns the bitter hops into something great.

12oz bottle, day 9 of the 2013 Craft Beer Advent Calendar, and a new Cali brewery's IPA to boot!

This beer pours a mostly clear, medium copper amber hue, with three fingers of aggressively puffy, tightly foamy, and marshmallow creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice sudsy webbed lace around the glass as it slowly and evenly sinks away.

It smells of sharp pine resin and mixed citrus pith bitterness straight out of the gate, with some mildly toasted caramel malt, dry toffee candies, and further soapy, lemony, and leafy hops following things up. The taste is more grapefruit, orange, and blended tropical fruit hop esters, neutered pine needles, lemon pudding, bready caramel malt, and a slightly perfumed floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is generally quite unobtrusive, and barely supportive in its quotidian duties, the body a sturdy medium weight, and rather smooth, the hops pulling a certain gentlemanly absence. It finishes well off-dry, the faltering, but still agreeable hops keeping the staid malt honest to the end.

A tasty, fairly well-balanced west-coast IPA, the hops not quite up to palate-wrecking levels, and that's a-ok once in while, IMHO. Flavourful, with an AWOL alcohol quotient, easy to drink, and hardly the mess that all you Advent Calendar "open and drink the IPAs early!" naysayers were baying about a few months ago. Party-pooping morons, the lot of ya.
