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.

Bizarre. Somewhat resinous...some grain and florals...yet very harsh and soapy. Aftertaste is overkill and harsh. Lacks major balance

tmoreau (2288) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2012
On tap at the annual CBS picnic, and self served to clear plastic with a hazed, orange/amber hue, a thick amount of creamy head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was light grain, citrus as grapefruit and some orange, light sweetness, and a touch of resin. The flavor presented an earthy, pungent, and very lingering hop bitterness, but enough malt to smooth the edge a bit. Well carbonated, and medium bodied, it paired well with the spicy picnic faire, and was my IPA choice of the day.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2012
On tap at Tokyo Pub. Pours cloudy orangish copper with off white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, floral hops, and some malt. Flavors of light tropical fruit, and citrus hops, but is really dominated by malt base. Really lacking hop profile. Something seemed off and did not seem fresh.

On tap at the Beer Bistro. Cloudy copper color with a white head. Grapefruity hop aromas. Grapefruit and tropical fruit hops nicely offset by the caramel malt backbone. A nice IPA...

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
16oz can. Pours a hazy amber color with a two finger white head that leaves good lacing and falls to a cap. Aroma is apricot, some citrus rind, herbal, grassy, floral hops and a bit of pine, and a decent amount of caramel malt. Flavor is orange citrus, apricot, pine, resinous hops, good caramel malt backbone offering some sweetness, that finishes with good bitterness, and mild alcohol. Medium bodied, creamy, good carbonation.

puboflyons (2049) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2013
From the pint can. The pour is a hazy golden amber with a lingering off-white head. The aroma is malty and buttery more than hoppy but the hops are more earthy than any other sensation. The body is medium but also rather astringent and oily. The taste has a kind of off-hoppiness with the buttery and pale malts.
