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.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2013 Bronze colored with a moderate fluffy head. The aroma is bright and hoppy; grapefruit, pine, floral notes, as well as a little caramel malt. The body is slick with some sweet malt; sharp bitter fruity, grassy, and resinous hops counter that nicely. Quite dry in the finish with lots of lingering hop bitterness. This is a very good IPA.

16oz can. Pours a very hazy golden amber qith a white head. Another below average for the style brew from Finch’s. Watery mouthfeel. Some slight pine and apricot notes, enough to make it drinkable but nothing great here.

Solid IPA. I was fairly surprised after having the Golden Wing. Pours orange with an off white head. Citrus aroma and flavor that blends well with the caramel malt. Not a bad regular beer.

Leafs93 (1682) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, toast and floral. Taste is medium bitters and a touch of sweetness, the citrus shines through. Light to medium bodied with a smooth texture and crisp finish. Very refreshing and great at only 6% to drink a few.

tcane7 (1663) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
16 oz can. Pours a very murky golden orange with hop particles, thick off white head, and fantastic lacing. Nose is mostly caramel malt with a little piney and muted citrus hops. The hops come through more with the taste. PIneapple, citrus, pine. Real strong bitterness, borderline palate wrecker.

BOSSbrewer (1635) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours a hazy amber. Lots of citrus on the nose. Some malt. Finishes slightly sweet. Nice beer.

NikkTwist (1624) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Draft at Milkboy. Cloudy orange amber pour. Started with a large foamy head but it rather quickly reduced to a thin ring. No lace. Fuzzy oranges. Medium amber fruit. Cantaloupe. Light toast. Blood orange juice. Gently sweet in the middle. Dry lightly spicy finish. Fuller and smoother than most. Nicely constructed.

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

16 oz can. Pours orange with a one finger white head. Minor lace. Aroma is orange zest & pine. Orange & pine is repeated in the flavor. Around the middle of the glass you pick up some biscuit flavor. Medium bodied with a soft easy to drink palate. New to New Hampshire & I’ll have to check out some of their other brews.

ContemplateBeer (1540) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 1, 2014
On tap at North End Cafe, Bardstown Rd. (Louisville). Aroma: Grapefruit and sweet malts are nearly balanced; there’s some pineapple notes to give a little more interest. Definitely more malty than some of the more recent IPAs. Appearance: Translucent light copper pour with a bubbly bone head. Flavor: Good amount of juicy pineapple up front with the grapefruit; the malts are really present and quite sweet; never really dries up the way a top tier IPA should. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A solid beer, but a middling IPA at best. Surprised to see it ranked so highly.
