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.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a white head and strong aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is of hops, pine, citrus, and grapefruit with a heavy and lingering bitter finish. Nice brew.

Pours an hazy amber reddish color. Nose is citrus and pine, with a tangerine and peach nose predominating, quite pleasant nose. Taste is all citrus with very heavy bitterness at first than settles down quite delightfully. Finish is moderately long with some sweetness. Nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a hazy yellow orange colored body. The aroma was mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Pours deep amber with big hints of citrus. The citrus turns to spice with a sweet malt lingered finish.

Canned. Dark orange with a very large, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and nectarine flesh, light spruce, orange zest and light black pepper. Mildly bitter flavor at first; bitterness increases slightly through the finish. Notes of raw straw and dried grasses pop in and out. Aftertaste has mild flavors of bready sourdough and black tea. Caramel malts become more pronounced as it warms and breathes a bit. A solid offering. Thanks to Narnad for the can.

kseecs16 (1192) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Can. Pours an orange hued amber with a soapy off-white head tha tleaves rings of whisply lacing down the glass and settles in to sporadic clumps. Quite citrusy aroma with some sweet sugary floral notes. Somewhat light bodied with a significant dry bitterness. Not bad and the lingering bitterness is pleasant but lacks a little punch of flavor that would put it over the edge.

Literally a pineapple bomb. Not super tropical but the pineapple flavor is there big time. It is juicy with a medium bitterness. It is good.

16 oz can. Pours clear golden with a white head. Spicy hop aroma, grapefruit. Flavors of spicy, grapefruit, pine hops as well, and some slightly stale biscuit. It’s just okay.
