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 clear gold with a creamy white head. Smells of mostly piney/citrusy hops. Very little malt detectable, but also had food at the table so didn’t get the best nose. Holy bitter Batman! Pine and more pine from the hops and a weird roasted barley thing. The malt profile almost seems like something out of a stout. Everything combined together just made this a complete bitter bomb. Not well balanced at all and the flavors didn’t work together. Mouthfeel and carbonation were about what you’d expect from an IPA. Not worth it. I love IBU’s and have had very few beers ever I’ve described as "too bitter" but this one is way unbalanced.

From 16oz can pours a gold amber with a small white foamy head, so looks good. Aroma is piney and bready with hints of citrus. Lightly carbonated with a heavier body than its appearance. Certainly has bitter hops, the first thing you taste but overall this is more a malty IPA. Toasty malts and piney hops actually balance quite well but leave a bitter aftertaste. Something about this doesn’t cut it, it may taste to strong for me but probably a good pickup for those that like intensely bitter beer.

It’s a solid local IPA in Chicago. Pours a nice dark orange color with a frothy white head that leaves some moderate lacing. You can smell lots of citrus and floral hops upfront but it has a bit of yeasty malt to it as well. Taste is not overly bitter or hoppy and is well balanced. Very tasty local beer worth drinking and enjoying.

AdamT (112) - Wilson, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Can from Brewmasters. Reddish-Orange hue, zero visiibility with mostly diminishing white head, fair lacing. Strong citrus hop on the nose, halfway through it started to smell like a hog or turkey house in North Carolina on a warm day. The taste was a typical strong bitter hop, but it had some strange taste on the finish that I couldn’t pinpoint and I didn’t like it.

From can to shaker. Pours a cloudy orange with a nice beige head. Initial smell is a bit grassy with some citrus and hay. Taste is of grapefruit and some other citrus fruits with a very balanced malt presence. Wonderful MF with ample, smooth carbonation. This IPA, like most, starts with great hop/citrus fruit flavor, but this one quickly dissipates and is all bitterness. I am a fan of some very bitter beers but this one finishes with too much bitter and not enough flavor. However, with that said, it is a very good IPA and I wouldn’t hesitate buying it again.

Pours a light copper, hazy, almost white head, no lacing. Nice citrusy aroma, very prominent. Flavor is a nice balance of caramel maltiness and pungent hoppiness. I get predominantly orange from the hop flavor, fading into grapefruit on the finish. The palate is just right, not too thin, not too thick. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

16oz can poured into a snifter. A- Grassy bread malt with mild herb and citrus notes. A-Amber orange hue with a slight off-white head that disappears quickly. Lacing is minimal and slight haze density. T-Initial malt taste is small amounts of caramel, hay, grass. Hop character is herbal, some lemon and citrus. P-Carbonation is pleasant, sweetness of malt is moderate that pulls to the back with nice bitterness and dryness. O-Enjoy this unique malt for an IPA. Really nice to have this much bready and cereal quality for a tweak more citrus hop character for what I would initially classify English based on the more prodominant herb and grassy tones. Very enjoyable. Aroma-pleasant grassy, herb, and Citrus Appearance-Nice Orange, lacing should show better health Taste-Enjoy Malt uniqueness with Herb & Citrus hop character Palate-Good mouthfeel. Sweetness to bitterness enjoyable Overall-A very good mix and hybrid of British & American IPA qualities.

Poured from 16oz can. aroma is of citrus, grapefruit, pine, and sour caramel. Color is of an orange hue that is hazy in color with a lots of sediment. It definitely could use some cleaning way to much sediment. Taste is citrus,pine some soft grapefruit notes malt flavors are sour caramel and has some off flavors like butter and other sour notes. Lots of bitterness here. It feels oily and and clings to the palate leaves a soapy taste in back of throat. Moderate carbonation. Overall, not one I would seek out to try again very mediocre.

Can. Pours a yellowish orange color with a soapy, slightly off white head. Aroma is sweet, pineapple, banana, and floral hops. Flavor is fruity and floral, more floral and sweet than bitter. Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Overall a good beer.
