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.

Ughsmash (7008) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pint-size can. Poured medium orangey-peach with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up blood orange, earth, and pine hoppage over biscuit, bready, and honey sweetness.. much more lovely orange as it warmed up. The flavor found fruity notes plus some honey at the core.. moderate bitterness at most around, with orange and pineapple leading.. finished with more citrus over toffee and caramel malts. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. solid.
