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.

Pailhead (5557) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Can: The aroma consists of caramel, fruit, and light grapefruit. It pours a hazy amber with some sediment floating around. It has a two finger orange tinged off-white head that has very good retention and leaves some nice lacing rings. The flavor starts with some sweet citrus and caramel. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and a hint of toasted notes. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, I generally don’t score IPAs with caramel notes highly. I didn’t really score this high, but the caramel notes in this IPA didn’t bother me as much as they usually do.

Taste brings lots of orange out (candied orange, orange juice and orange peel) along with floral hops, sweet malt, orange creamsicle, light caramel and hops oils. Body is medium with a soft, creamy, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more orange notes, orange creamsicle, sweet malt, candied citrus and floral hops.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5359) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a medium sized soapy orange-white head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was strong floral hops - almost gritty and leafy. The flavor was bitter with a strong floral and fruity hop presence and a tangy caramel undertone. Long leafy floral and fruity hop finish. Medium body. Solid.

Beerman6686 (5281) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
This one poured an amber color with an off white head. Aroma was lots of green, citrusy lightly dirty hops, with light caramel in the background. Flavor was similar, more fresh and inviting than I was expecting from the aroma. Ok.

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pint can. Nose lightly sweet and citrus, a little dank, and big on pine. Pours orange with a rocky cream head. Taste strongly bitter with strong dough and spice, seemingly a rye-like flavor component, light alcohol and warmth, big caramel and pine. There is citrus, yes, but bigger floral character, and mildly forrestal. Lightly soapy and cleansing, light-medium resin, touch scorched/burned character and some deeper malt development. Full body and very heavy, but boldly flavorful.

thedm (5065) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 20, 2012
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a hazy yellow orange colored body. The aroma was mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.
