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.

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.

This is nice. Itís got a great citrusy flavor from the hops, but a nice full body as well. Itís well balanced and extremely enjoyable.

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.

Scipio (756) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Pours a golden with a full frothy white head. Aroma is very citrus, with grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, and grape. Grapefruit is the dominant taste with more orange undertones. The citrus really stands out here. The darker aromas are no longer present. Very bitter aftertaste. Not much of the hoppy IPA bite that I was expecting, and more light and smooth than others of this style. Pretty enjoyable overall, but as an IPA, about average for my tastes.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2012
16oz can, unknown date, but should be fresh as this is a recent arrival to the Georgia market. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours hazy amber with a two finger white head that leaves good lacing and holds a nice cap.

Aroma is apricot, some citrus rind, herbal, grassy, floral hops and a bit of pine, decent amount of caramel malt as well. Good strength.

Flavor is orange citrus, apricot, pine, resinous hops, good caramel malt backbone offering some sweetness, finishes with good bitterness, mild alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, oily, good carbonation.

Solid IPA, very drinkable. Does fall into the apricot/caramel spectrum of the style which isnít my personal favorite profile.

bookman10 (732) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2014
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.

pkbites (718) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Pour is cloudy orange. Tan head dies quickly with minimum lacing on glass. Wonderful nose of pine, floral, sugar, caramel, and fresh bakery. Flavor is of floral hops, grapefruit, and pine. Low carbonation. I love bitter hops, but these are too bitter and overpower the other flavors. This drags the score down. Also, for this style the alcohol content is too low.

canary dog (697) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Nose is of sweet toffee or caramel. Little head. Light bodied and very smooth, like a draft beer. Rich and citrusy hops with a firm malt sweetness serving as a backbone. The bitterness is assertive but not overpowering, by any stretch, and lingers on in a somewhat dry finish. This is a very well blended beer, and is reminiscent of a really good draft IPA.
