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.

Bottle to glass. Pours a clear rich amber color with a decent size light tan head with heavy lacing. Aroma is a pleasant combination of light citrus and fleshy fruits intermixed with a light caramel malt. Taste is moderately bitter decently balanced with a malty fleshy fruit sweetness. Light bitterness and sweetness linger in finish. Solid IPA.

First off -- this is the kind of ipa that we crave & fight & pull our hair over about in Canada. Solid, sessionable & tasty. Pours deep orange with a nice fluffy cap. Aroma is rich with pine. Tastes great: hoppy, juicy & slightly citrus. If I could get this easily itíd be my regular. Luckily I got four of íem before i hopped the border. Mail some to me & I wonít return to sender.

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.

16 oz can. Dirty copper pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of pennies, earthy hops, faint citrus and sweet malt. Medium body, slight hoppy finish.

Ericular (936) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with lasting head and good lacing. Aroma is fairly strong citrus zest and pine. Taste is more malt forward. OK, but not a great IPA in my opinion.

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.

Decent offering. Pours yellow orange with an off white head. Citrus aroma. Medium body and carbonation. Nothing overpowering; light sweet malt and slight hop bite finish.

Can courtesy of E.R. pours cloudy copper with fizzy white head. Grapefruit, tangerine, pine, biscuit, cooked vegetables. Moderately sweet and bitter. Medium bodied and fairly smooth. Decent

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

Pours a cloudy, pale, golden yellow, with minimal head. Aroma has some hops and some citrus zest. Flavor is very grassy, the hops are pretty muted, and thereís a fairly sweet undercurrent. Not one of the better IPAs Iíve tried.
