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.

Can: Orange peel and pine nose with a kiss of clover honey. Shimmering amber, thick firm pale yellow head. Pleasantly bitter pine needle flavor, grapefruit finish. Alcohol not noticeable, thinnish mouthfeel. Nice transitions, drinkable. Nicely done.

altonbrownd (5650) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Can from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Bought in Can randomly and what a pleasant surprise. Hazy orange body with big head. Nose is hoppy, floral. Very good taste of hops, graperfruit and floral. With just a really nice bitter kick to it. Excellent.

dwyerpg (5644) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 10, 2014
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.

Clear and orange red with a ton of sticky head from tap. Super bitter. Great hops. Citrus and floral flavor and aroma. Loved it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EithCubes (5618) - 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.

dmac (5599) - 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.

draft, this one was bad, a platic chemical flavor and aroma, overwhelming and cant really taste much else, like cleaning supplies

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
Fr0m the pint-sized can this p0ured a hazy light amber b0dy with a tw0-fingered ecru head. The ar0ma had s0me bready malt with a d0ll0p 0f caramel c0vered by mild citrus and earthy scents. The taste was h0ppier, tart 0ranges and tangerines giving a sustained bitterness. The bread and caramel flav0rs balanced it all 0ut, perhaps a tad t00 much f0r an IPA. N0t a bad drink and w0rth repeating, which is g00d, since I have three m0re cans.

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.

mansquito (5341) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Total Wine, Fairfax 4-pack: Pours amber color with off-white head. Aroma is grapefuit, pine, and fairly hefty malt. Taste is pretty bitter, but is also combined with a caramely sweetness. Ain’t the greatest IPA. I would have prefered it to be less malty.
