COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Threadless/Finch collaboration IPA is a balanced experience of both perceived hoppiness and true bitterness. It pours a darker amber color and finishes with a citrus flavor, and when combined, will require this to be the last IPA you ever drink! Well, maybe, we realize you will probably drink more, but the result of this recipe clearly evolves into a very balanced IPA. The grain bill on this big pale includes melanoidin and Victory malts. We hop it up before the boil starts with some Columbus first wort hopping, then add a bunch more for bittering.

Nice color amber red. Nice spicy hops. A little thin on the palate. Not sure if the carbonation level is right. The malts are outshone by the hops as well. Not well balanced. Good beer not great.

Aroma: Floral and citrus hops with hints of spruce at the edges. Appearance: Clear pale gold with a rich, white head. Taste: Immediate medium bitterness with a light sourness in the finish. Palate: Medium-full body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, long finish. Overall: Pretty typical IPA. I’m not undone, but I’m not disappointed, either. A fairly solid, well developed beer.

1 pint can. Quite a full can. Hazy orange color. Good thick off-white head. Leaves good lace. Good smooth texture. Lighter carbonation. Medium body. Texture is more dry, but not too dry. Really nice fruity hoppy flavor. Light pine. Bigger citrus (orange). Light pepperiness. Good bitter taste, good citrus peel zest. Yup, this is a great IPA. Especially impressive flavor for the lower ABV.

Aroma is killer hops, pine and resin, aggressive as you would think from a 90ibu bomb. The color is gorgeous, great looking beer. The extra maltyness gives a slight bready scent that is backed up by the aftertaste. Big hops up front but malts out near the end. 6% abv is prefect, I can comfortably down a few!

ChainGangGuy (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
16 ounce can - $2.09 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, golden-amber body in hue with a tall, thickish, off-white head that collapses leaving gooey remnants along the glass walls.

Smell: Threadless smells of honey-brushed, lightly toasty grains, loaf bread with packed, blended hop notes ranging from florals, to grasses, to citrus fruits, to moist pine needles.

Taste: Moderately sweet honeyish tone amidst the toasted barley grains and bread. Then, some orange oil, grapefruit, resinous tones, plus some firm leafiness. Medium-high bitterness. All those hop flavors linger while the maltiness and sweetness quickly drops away leaving a chewy albeit bitter and dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. A bit chewy and creamy, actually.

Overall: Fairly decent India Pale Ale.

Great IPA to have with dinner, mellow enough to allow me to taste the food but still get a good kick of hops
