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.

jstraw (1922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Draft at Jerry’s. Orange-gold with decent, creamy, white head / Bright nose of orange, spun sugar, cut pine, and resin / Medium body, a touch watery, but otherwise good balance and finish / Flavors of orange, spun sugar, cut pine, and resin (the rare beer that tastes exactly like it smells) / A little more kick to the body, especially more hops, and this will be something.

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.

rubbishystuff (1850) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2012
At Gene’s rooftop. Dark amber for an IPA. Big fruity hops and quite bitter. The bitterness settles strangely in the palate though and while it wasn’t bad I just wasn’t a big fan of this. Serving: Tap

bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours cloudy orange into the glass, with a nice eggshell head that reduces to thick ring lacing. The nose is of musty orange citrus. Flavors are well-bittered from beginning to end, with orange and lemon upfront, and a decent grain bill hitting mid-palate. The close is nice and of lingering peppery bitters. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a juicy palate and medium-soft carbonation. Drinkability and complexity meet in the middle, with a substantive nature that goes down very nicely. Well-bittered for the hop head, this is a nice IPA!

hombrepalo (1829) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Brewhaha. Cloudy amber color. Very nice aroma, fruity. Lean mouthfeel, with good malt and toffee flavor; the hopping is bold but well blended, providing resins in the front, and some fruity presence. Just avg!

JMerritt (1806) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Canned. Dark orange with a very large, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and nectarine flesh, light spruce, orange zest and light black pepper. Mildly bitter flavor at first; bitterness increases slightly through the finish. Notes of raw straw and dried grasses pop in and out. Aftertaste has mild flavors of bready sourdough and black tea. Caramel malts become more pronounced as it warms and breathes a bit. A solid offering. Thanks to Narnad for the can.

Westmeister (1764) - 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.
