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.

Amber pour with a thin head. Lots of lace. Grain on the nose with some grass. Medium mouth. Big time grass in the taste along with some caramel sweetness.

Can. The pour is a bright orange murky color. The aroma is faint on the hops. The taste has a decent amount of bitterness, but drinks well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 ox can pours a cloudy golden color with medium head and some lacing. Smells of floral and piney hops. Aroma is the same without much else, except perhaps some malts which add a buttery note. Taste is bitter as expected, and finish is even more bitter. Average body, average carbonatation, average IPA.which I probably wonít try again although I donít donít regret buying a 4-pack

Poured into a pint glass out of a growler. Pours a nearly clear medium copper with a one finger white head. Some light lacing on the sides of the glass along with a small layer of fizz on top of the beer. The aroma is much more Earthy than fruity with tree bark, soil, and an overall dank quality about it. A touch of pine is thrown in but the aroma is far from piny. The flavor continues this earthy character. I pick up on the dankness much more in the flavor along with more pine and tree bark. There is perhaps a touch of overripe orange but the fruit is very understated. Bitterness is on the high side with a good mouthfeel and just a touch of stickiness on the finish. Overall, a good IPA but there is really nothing about it that makes it stand out from all of the others out there. Good to drink but forgettable afterwards.

Pint size can served in a FFF pint glass. Purchased at a local Binnyís. Canned within a week or two. A: Pours a clear amber color with a finger of pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to thick ring. Some soapy lace is left behind. S: Mostly bitter pine with some light grassy notes a slightly sweet malty body. T: Very bitter hops up front. It does mix with the sweetness of the malts for the beginning, but the malt body fades quickly and youíre left with raw hop bitterness, some grass and light pine needle flavor. M: Medium bodied with lower than average carbonation. It not the best going down, but it does have a lightness on the finish. The hops just really attack palate. O: This was pretty run of the mill, the body of the beer being slightly imbalanced and dominated by more of a bitter and pine hop presence in a raw form. I would definitely pass over this for other beers and if I need I cans Iíve got Daisy Cutter at my disposal for $2 less for a four pack. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 04-11-2012

On tap at the (and Iím ashamed to admit I was there- work function) Dave Mathews Band Caravan thing. 7-15ish-11 on tap. Poured a pure gold with a thin white head. A middle of the road IPA with a very simple hop profile. In the 100 degree heat a good IPA should have come across thicker and almost over bearing. This was a much better than the BMC swill those around me were drinking, but after 1 I switched to a little sumpin sumpin. Just sayin.

Gachupines (848) - USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy with some grapefruit tones. Flavor is solidly hoppy, big grapefruit flavor. Nice bitterness in the finish. Could use a little more malt to round out the finish. Overall, very solid IPA, works quite well for a hot day.
