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.

16 ounce can. Nice carbonated pour. Like Cut Throat, malty. Big malt presence. Some citrus. Bit of sweetness that gets a little coying. Overall, decent and drinkable for this particular take on the IPA.

Pailhead (6426) - 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. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, I generally donít score IPAs with caramel notes highly. I didnít really score this high, but the caramel notes in this IPA didnít bother me as much as they usually do.

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.

Had both on draft at Taphouse/Queensway and out of a can on the same Sunday afternoon. On tap, this appeared golden and hazy with just a thin, sticky head. From the can, it came out ruddy orange and well topped. Makes me question my local taphouse! In both cases, this emits a decent, woody, piney aroma. The beer from the can is much better overall, and drives this rating. A firm, solid mid-American IPA, and easy to drink. More, please. (#5174, 7/21/2013)

Draft, Portsmouth Breweryís guest tap. Has an orange / gold color with thin quickly vanishing head. Nose is floral with hints of citrus and caramel malt. Flavor is me is about average for a standard IPA. Flavor is caramel sweetness, light pine, plenty of floral hops. After the sip I get a lightly lingering grassy note to go with the floral hops. Maybe I have become jaded by huge Imperial brews because this just didnít stand out to me at all. NOTHING wrong with it, very drinkable but it get lost in my memory of hundreds of IPAís.

Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this can. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of biscuit malt and the resulting sweetness, as well as some pine and a little bit of orange citrus. The flavor has a lot of toffee and caramel malt in it, with some pine and a hint of grass from the hops. Low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
