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.

DavoleBomb (1522) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.5 A: Murky dark yellow brown color. Just one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a decent amount of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Supremely floral and citrusy. Papaya leads the way followed by mango and orange. Bready yeastiness, mild neutral malt sweetness, and just the slightest touch of caramel. 3.5 T: Taste is like the nose. Floral and citrus hops with the fruits mentioned above. Lots of yeastiness, mild neutral maltiness, mild bitterness, and a touch of caramel. 3.5 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy with chewiness from the yeast. 3.5 D: Tasty, well rounded IPA. Lots of yeast, but it isn’t too distracting. Serving type: can 10-11-2012 04:19:58

Finch’s Threadless IPA has a medium, creamy, off-white head, an opaque, gold-orange appearance, some noticeable, clinging bubbles, and lacing, top to bottom. Aroma is of flowers, nectar, hop oil, and white bread. Flavor is of sweet, white bread, not so bitter hop bitterness, sugar, and pine oil. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Finch’s Threadless IPA finishes on the dry side and quite drinkable. RJT

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Resinous tropical and grapefruit aromas. Hazy orange unfiltered appearance. Bitter up front, mellows out to a sweeter finish. Mainly bitter nonetheless. Medium body, seems kind of flat relative to its overall profile. Not an IPA I was thrilled with.

lamas (1443) - Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2013
1 pint can courtesy of agl108. A hazy rust pour with a thick and creamy antique white head. Lots of pine, grapefruits, oranges, citrus rinds, and caramel in the aroma. A sizable roasty maltiness comes out as things warm up a bit. Goes down medium to full-bodied. Loads of sweet caramel maltiness upfront taste-wise that only intensifies as things warm up. There is a big earthy graininess in the middle. Some citrus rinds and grapefruits at the bitter end. A well-balanced IPA.

MaBeer1972 (1438) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Single can from Julio’s. Pours out a cloudy light amber. Little to no head. Light sweet malty aromas. Flavor is interestingly bitter up front. Almost like eating coffee beans. Watery mouthfeel. Can’t get over that extreme dry bitterness though. This is a mess!

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Fresh can into a nonic pint. Pours deep gold with a slight white head, moderate lacing. Big grass and citrus aroma, pine, pineapple. Taste is grassy, piney, fruity, assertively bitter with a hit of sticky resin sweetness before finishing dry. My kind of IPA!

trapped (1365) - New York, TURKEY - APR 9, 2015
Draught @ Barleycorn. Hazy orange with small off-white spongy head, faint hops aroma, low carbonation, lightly hoppy yaste, medium finish. Easy to drink, very smooth

tnkw01 (1336) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Can. Yet, another IPA. This one is just kind of average. Color was gold. Really not much head for a IPA. Taste was typical except there was a weird after taste yo it. Almost chemical like. Aroma typical.
