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.

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 couldnít pinpoint and I didnít like it.

Tasty beer. It is a little to bitter to make it sessionable, but it is nice full, hoppy beer. Orangish in color and very hazy. The hops are oily and leave quite a bit of lacing. There is quite a bit of pine in the aroma.

A bit malty on the nose and in the flavor but otherwise solidly hoppy and well put together

Poured from a 16oz can. Aroma - almost a green apple / caramel smell. Appearace - slightly hazy golden pour with almost zero head. Taste - Citrus with a backbone of bitterness....not bad. Palate - Smooth - not too carbonated... Overall - not too bad. A little light on the body, but a decent beer.

jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2013
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 didnít 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 didnít work together. Mouthfeel and carbonation were about what youíd expect from an IPA. Not worth it. I love IBUís and have had very few beers ever Iíve described as "too bitter" but this one is way unbalanced.

Itís 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.

This is one of those IPAs that use a signature malt platform, and then let it take over.

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.

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 wouldnít hesitate buying it again.
