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.

Very mild easy drinking IPA. It has all the proper notes but they are just slightly too subtly... Take a note from Surly and do everything in a can BIG!

I had it out of a can, it pours nicely with a thick frothy head that laces evenly. The aroma is pungent at first with notes hops, citrus, and pine. The taste is very hoppy, again with notes of citrus and pine. Good IPA.

can. to be honest, I have no idea of it’s color/appearance - I went straight from the can. Very solid IPA - smooth, yet hoppy. Super easy to drink. Liked it.

Jabic (420) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Ar: Resin, black pepper - orange zest, grapefruit - intensity is fairly strong. Ap: Golden-orange, clear - large off-white head, great retention, leaves a rocky mountain of foam. T: Toasted malt, slight medium and light caramels - lemon and grapefruit - pine - bitterness is medium-high, clean - low sweetness - grapefruit and pine on the finish. P: Medium body with medium carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Good AIPA - hop flavor is firm and pronounced, though as sticky and pungent as some examples - it could use a bit more carbonation.

On tap sample at Flying Saucer. Pours a golden color. Aroma of hops, very strong. Hops are also evident in the taste, but more towards a floral aspect instead of pine. I think the taste moves toward a citrus note. Finishes bitter and hoppy, more than i want at the end. but overall, decent IPA. I had it out of a can, it pours nicely with a thick frothy head that laces evenly. The aroma is pungent at first with notes hops, citrus, and pine. The taste is very hoppy, again with notes of citrus and pine. Good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted from a 16oz. can. Poured amber in color with a bright hop and citrus aroma. A refreshing bitter hoppiness.

Dr_Fellini (392) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2013
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.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2012
16 oz can - Nice floral hops aroma. A bit too grainy on the tongue for me. It seems a little malt-heavy. OK beer. I was recommended this one by a Chicago beer-lover, so I was expecting to like it a bit more than I did.

Nice hazy orange pour with a solid, lingering off-white head. Aroma of honey, orange rind and resin. Really nice flavor. The way that the honey-like malt sweetness/resin balance out early on is really well done. A nice clean citrus finish follows. Tasty, very drinkable IPA.
