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.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 5/24/13 update - Found this locally at Otto’s in pint cans. Still good, nicely aromatic. My recall likes the tap version slightly better. 4/19/13 on tap @ Balzac - Reddish amber, slightly cloudy, pillowy head. Aromas of grapefruit and orange citrus, along with baked bread maltiness. Mouthfeel has some real substance from the malt wrapped in a well balanced citrusy hop cloak. Very drinkable, satisfying and somewhat unique profile.

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.

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.

Poured from a 16oz can. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, citrus, and caramel. Flavors are pine, grapefruit, orange peel, and caramel. Very well balanced beer, the hops are nice and dank though, not to bitter for 90 ibus. Well done balanced Ipa.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
