Snagged a single bottle at J Webb Wine Merchant in Calgary, poured into a standard shaker pint glass. An orange-copper hue with a shapely and copious beige head, smelling of rather fresh, strong citrus (grapefruit mainly but some lemon and tangerine as well), pine needles or mentholated cough candies, green leaf, and flower shop, with rather subdued toffee buried somewhere underneath the green resinous pile o' goodness. Palate largely mirrors this, certainly swinging well toward the piney, citrus, and floral hop flavors with a crystal malt backbone just barely peeking out. Tons of green, coniferous needle/pine cone, tannic bitter tea, and cannabis flavors that dry the palate, not terribly sweet and a bit like biting into a green banana peel infused with citrus and rose oils. Middle of the road in terms of body and the carbonation is rather prickly. Some green onion appears after a while and the pine gathers steam. Whoa. This might be less zingy after sitting on the shelf for a while. I might have lucked out and snagged something pretty fresh. Great American IPA if you enjoy all the excesses associated with American hopping regimes yet not undrinkable. This brewery seems to fly under the radar a bit and I'm glad these brews have hit Alberta "shores".

This is a local brew for me. I enjoy it. This beer has a nice look, light orange coloring, good lacing. You can smell the caramel malt , with slight fruit notes. With the taste, I got the sweet caramel malt, along with bitter grapefruit, and peach. Not much pine bitterness, or resin, some floral notes.

One of my first IPA's ever. Not the greatest, but solid.

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.
