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.

500ml can courtesy of Brian. Slightly hazy orange tan. Thin, off white head. Dry citrus hop aroma. Clean, some toasty golden malt tones and a solid hop bill. A faint touch of butter, but not overwhelming. Overall pretty solid offering, crisp hoppy IPA.

Very mild easy drinking IPA. It has all the proper notes but they are just slightly too subtly... Take a note from Surly and do everything in a can BIG!

Scipio (756) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Pours a golden with a full frothy white head. Aroma is very citrus, with grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, and grape. Grapefruit is the dominant taste with more orange undertones. The citrus really stands out here. The darker aromas are no longer present. Very bitter aftertaste. Not much of the hoppy IPA bite that I was expecting, and more light and smooth than others of this style. Pretty enjoyable overall, but as an IPA, about average for my tastes.

Atom (1777) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2012
22oz bottle pours a hazy golden/amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, grain, citrus, pine, and tropical. Taste of resinous pine balanced pretty well with nice malt and grain. Pretty Nice!

Headbanger (3536) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2012
Sample at Binny’s Downers Grove 4/4/12-Pours an amber body with a small head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more malt. This medium to full bodied brew is pretty well balanced and goes down easy.

Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this can. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of biscuit malt and the resulting sweetness, as well as some pine and a little bit of orange citrus. The flavor has a lot of toffee and caramel malt in it, with some pine and a hint of grass from the hops. Low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Frank (3343) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2012
This is not really hitting the spot for me IPA-wise. It is a nice amber color w/ a decent head but appearance is the only aspect they really got right. The aroma is subdued w/ primarily dark, piny and herbal notes. Flavor is just dominated by an aggressive earthy bitterness which is balanced by a sticky sweetness but lends to a beer that neither has a compelling flavor nor is particularly drinkable. Finch’s does better and there are way better IPA’s locally. This four pack is the last I will probably buy.

Wonderful, cloudy, amber color. Firm body with average head. Hop aroma was fruity, but hop after taste was just bitter.

rumproasts (4137) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2012
coppery with small head. not surprisingly, this is very hoppy -- like a mid abv imperial ipa .slight pineyness. very bitter and the bitterness lingers nicely. not much in the way of citrus, but very full flavored.
