BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tap It Brewing Co.
California, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This first wort-hopped IPA has a harmonious explosion of hop flavor and aroma. A hazy head leads drinkers toward a beer rich in citrus and earthy flavors with a smooth and rich finish. The complex floral and citrusy tones from the Citra and Simcoe hops welcome you, while two more aromatic varietals mate perfectly with specialty malts for an unmatched aroma.

This has good bitterness. Lately my fave has been Sam Adams Rouser double IPA, but this is close to as good.

I bought it on a impulse. Nice colour and aroma; Hoppy, grassy, citrus. Above average American IPA. Not the best, but certainly not the worst. I'd do it again.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a fine two finger head with great retention and lots of thick lacing. Nice aroma of caramel malt, citrus, tropical fruit and light dankness, just what I want my IPA to smell like. Flavor is mild caramel malt, lemon, orange and grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit, citrus and dank piney hops. Finishes with citrus rind, and piney bitterness. Good medium body with light creaminess. A well done Western style IPA with a nicely selected hop bill that delivers herbal flavors and good bitterness. Well balanced and flavorful. I'll look for more from this brewery when I'm back in So Cal.
