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.

Poured from a can. Nice hoppy aroma, but there is some maltiness as well. The taste is a strong bitterness, but again, you can tastes solid male presence as well...pretty solid, but not spectacular

From can to shaker. Pours a cloudy orange with a nice beige head. Initial smell is a bit grassy with some citrus and hay. Taste is of grapefruit and some other citrus fruits with a very balanced malt presence. Wonderful MF with ample, smooth carbonation. This IPA, like most, starts with great hop/citrus fruit flavor, but this one quickly dissipates and is all bitterness. I am a fan of some very bitter beers but this one finishes with too much bitter and not enough flavor. However, with that said, it is a very good IPA and I wouldn’t hesitate buying it again.

RyanK (227) - Rhode Island, USA - AUG 6, 2013
From 16oz can pours a gold amber with a small white foamy head, so looks good. Aroma is piney and bready with hints of citrus. Lightly carbonated with a heavier body than its appearance. Certainly has bitter hops, the first thing you taste but overall this is more a malty IPA. Toasty malts and piney hops actually balance quite well but leave a bitter aftertaste. Something about this doesn’t cut it, it may taste to strong for me but probably a good pickup for those that like intensely bitter beer.

16oz can poured into a snifter. A- Grassy bread malt with mild herb and citrus notes. A-Amber orange hue with a slight off-white head that disappears quickly. Lacing is minimal and slight haze density. T-Initial malt taste is small amounts of caramel, hay, grass. Hop character is herbal, some lemon and citrus. P-Carbonation is pleasant, sweetness of malt is moderate that pulls to the back with nice bitterness and dryness. O-Enjoy this unique malt for an IPA. Really nice to have this much bready and cereal quality for a tweak more citrus hop character for what I would initially classify English based on the more prodominant herb and grassy tones. Very enjoyable. Aroma-pleasant grassy, herb, and Citrus Appearance-Nice Orange, lacing should show better health Taste-Enjoy Malt uniqueness with Herb & Citrus hop character Palate-Good mouthfeel. Sweetness to bitterness enjoyable Overall-A very good mix and hybrid of British & American IPA qualities.

It poured a hazy amber color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, toast and some florals. The taste was of medium bitters and a touch of sweetness while the citrus shined through. Very well done.
