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.

Can poured into a standard pint glass. Pours a hazy orange with a one finger fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, orange, tangerine, wheat, and caramel malt. Pine and caramel malt come on strong up front with tangerine, grapefruit, wheat, and white bread backing it. Great long bitter, dry finish of caramel malt, citrus and pine. Medium to light body, smooth somewhat creamy texture, lively carbonation. What I like about this is very hoppy, but it isn’t over hopped. Excellent hop balance. Very fresh and crisp. I may have found a new go-to IPA for this summer!

16oz can shared by Dan P. Pours a hazy orange color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet citrus fruit, grapefruit zest, and caramel malt. Taste is much the same. Bitter citrus skins, grapefruit rind, and sweet caramel malt.

dmac (4204) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2014
16oz can from Crossroads. Poured a cloudy nectar orange body under a dense foamy light beige head. Aroma of oranges, potpourri, tea bagsand some baby aspirin. Chalky medium body with a drier finish and softer to average carbonation. Flavor is citrus rind, old oranges, wet toast, tea, brown bread. Not great but not bad. Straight out of the can would probably make this even better.

shadey (1911) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2014
On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Dark red pour with nice head. More bitter than fresh or citrusy. Not my style of IPA.

Can.
Appearance: Murky orange/amber body with no head.
Aroma: Grassy, slightly earthy, some orange.
Taste: Odd grassy/orange pith flavor with a grassy, herbal and sweet orange finish. Malts are noticed adding sweetness.
Palate: Medium bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: Not sure what to think of this. I can drink it, but I don’t enjoy it.

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
Fr0m the pint-sized can this p0ured a hazy light amber b0dy with a tw0-fingered ecru head. The ar0ma had s0me bready malt with a d0ll0p 0f caramel c0vered by mild citrus and earthy scents. The taste was h0ppier, tart 0ranges and tangerines giving a sustained bitterness. The bread and caramel flav0rs balanced it all 0ut, perhaps a tad t00 much f0r an IPA. N0t a bad drink and w0rth repeating, which is g00d, since I have three m0re cans.

AdamT (186) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Can from Brewmasters. Reddish-Orange hue, zero visiibility with mostly diminishing white head, fair lacing. Strong citrus hop on the nose, halfway through it started to smell like a hog or turkey house in North Carolina on a warm day. The taste was a typical strong bitter hop, but it had some strange taste on the finish that I couldn’t pinpoint and I didn’t like it.
