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

msante79 (2212) - 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.

ROGUE (2145) - 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.

Pours cloudy orange with a thin wispy off-white head. Notes of resinous, coarse hops, pine and pepper. Full bodied, moderately resinous with lively carbonation.

obxdude10 (2102) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2013
This really nice IPA poured a cloudy copper color with virtually no head. The nose was well-balanced and inviting, with notes of sweet malt, grassy hops, lemon, grapefruit and a slight touch of wheat. The body was very smooth and drinkable and featured plenty of hops. The flavors are balanced very nicely with some caramel malt and wheat. Besides the floral and grassy hops, I tasted some lemon, grapefruit and pine. The beer finished dry, mellow and creamy.

Relatively average IPA. Minimal lacing. Clean bitter finish. I don't think I'll seek this out again. Not bad though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Westmeister (1979) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2013
Draft. Pours a hazy amber with medium off white head. Nose is citrus, orange, grapefruit and some light pale malts. Flavor is light citrus of more orange and grapefruit, and light maltiness. Good carbonation and medium body. Good standard IPA. No complaints.
