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.

cheap (3975) - 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.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Can from sam’s. pours a glowing opaque pinkish orange with a thin layer of lace on top. Nose is floral, citrus, grass, light caramel, papaya, light rye spice. Flavor is more balanced, not quite as bitter as expected, lots of fruity sweetness with some pine, lots of florals, and grassy hop notes. Almost tastes like a slightly bitter tropical juice of some kind and the carbonation is soft which suggests a juicy mouthfeel but the grass and pine bitterness still finishes things off. Interesting ipa.

dmac (3924) - 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.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2011
On tap at the GTMW 2011. Hazy amber with a thin tan head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of stinky, sticky resinous hops with some citrus and caramel beneath. Taste of resinous west-coasty hops, toasted pale malt, mild caramel and citrus. Full bodied brew finishes up nice and bitter and is pretty tasty.

drfabulous (3860) - 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.

ben4321 (3824) - 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.
