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.

A huge meringue head. A cloudy orange. This is a nice IPA. Plenty of hops in the body. And a strong bitter dry finish. Great stuff.

Pours deep amber into an English pint. Off-white micro head with good retention recedes leaving sheet lacing to coat surface. Sour caramel aromas. Soft with sour caramel and resin front to back and into the lasting earthy finish.

ChainGangGuy (4474) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
16 ounce can - $2.09 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, golden-amber body in hue with a tall, thickish, off-white head that collapses leaving gooey remnants along the glass walls.

Smell: Threadless smells of honey-brushed, lightly toasty grains, loaf bread with packed, blended hop notes ranging from florals, to grasses, to citrus fruits, to moist pine needles.

Taste: Moderately sweet honeyish tone amidst the toasted barley grains and bread. Then, some orange oil, grapefruit, resinous tones, plus some firm leafiness. Medium-high bitterness. All those hop flavors linger while the maltiness and sweetness quickly drops away leaving a chewy albeit bitter and dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. A bit chewy and creamy, actually.

Overall: Fairly decent India Pale Ale.

Patrickctenchi (4449) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours cloudy apricot with a fast, tan head. Scent is caramel, orange, peach. Taste is a little sticky citrus peel. Very soft bittering...90 IBU, eh....?...right. A strong dose of fruit juice. Tasty, but average.

dmac (4438) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2014
16oz can from Crossroads. Poured a cloudy nectar orange body under a dense foamy light beige head. Aroma of oranges, potpourri, tea bagsand some baby aspirin. Chalky medium body with a drier finish and softer to average carbonation. Flavor is citrus rind, old oranges, wet toast, tea, brown bread. Not great but not bad. Straight out of the can would probably make this even better.

drfabulous (4414) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 31, 2012
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.

cheap (4389) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2012
from a big 16 oz can. red and black label. Lots of perfume from a overwhelming foaming pour, almost got it all over the floor, ran to the sink, heheh. Head goes 4 inches rocky crag. Foam mustache fer sure. The smell makes my mouth water. Oh my, first taste is double ipa bitter nagging blast, wew, I think the first swig made me a little dizzy, kick me in the jaw. Wow, thiss stuff looks good as you pour it into the glass, lots of rolling carbonation. Yez, each swig knocks my head back, wew. Difficult is a nice word for this terribly on style kicking ass brew. One of the most offensive beers I’ve had in a long time so if you like IPA, you gotta try this batch. Large freshly tarred and chipped tongue I have now. You should see the foam on this, looks like foam that blows off the see in a windstorm. Weird overall beer experience. Hey there are these things floating around in the glass, chunks of stuff.

hotstuff (4388) - Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Rated on 01-04-2013 (Can) This beer pours a medium sized smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, mostly transparent/slightly hazy golden body, slow rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, earthy hops, fruity, and malt. The flavor is bitter, citrus, earthy hops and malt. The mouthfeel is semi-thick and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a lingering hoppy aftertaste and is a hop head beer. It is worth trying.

ben4321 (4382) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Location: Can at Monkey Bar in Philthy, 11/16/13

Aroma: The nose is grassy and hoppy, some pine, earth, citrus, and a hint of butter
Appearance: It pours a heavy golden-amber color with an off-white head
Flavor: The taste is pretty nice and hoppy, but then that buttery malt flavor kicks in
Palate: The body is medium, it has a pretty nice feel, and drinks really easily
Overall Impression: I thought this was a good attempt at an IPA with some nice hoppy components to it, but there’s a bit of a buttery malt flavor that just really hampers the quality of the beer overall.

16oz can in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and some caramel malts. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A standard IPA.
