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.

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

Capones. Pours out a moderately hazy orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of light citrus, dusty hay, light pine and some biscuity malt notes; body is a bit thin. Taste is of some white grapefruit bitterness, light pine, bready/toasty malts, and another punch of white grapfruit hop bitterness in the finish.

Hazy orange amber body. Nose shows off some orange, lemon and grapefruit--not much else but some pale malts. Flavor is similar, but a bit more muted as the citric hops are left hanging. Medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Thin finish. Ok.

I was nervous after the last exprience with this brewery but this one actually works well. A bit of bubblegum hops is always fun. Finish is a little piney and sticky. Some caramel malt and a light chewy grain sweetness working in the background.

It poured a hazy amber color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, toast and some florals. The taste was of medium bitters and a touch of sweetness while the citrus shined through. Very well done.

sloth (2443) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Small, tight beaded tan head with fair retention and decent lacing. Grapefruit, catty nose, nice. Body is medium and a bit chewy with an almost prickly carbonation, lil resiny. Dry malts, lil toasty with some danky hoppyness, earthy, grapefruity and juicy. Dry finish, some fruit, melon and a nice assy bite. Can from statelineliquors.

MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2012
16 oz can. Pours a massive head with a little bit of gunky orange liquid underneath. Lots of chunky things are swimming around in there. Aromas are mostly citrusy. Oranges and grainy caramel. Flavor is sharply bitter with more of a lemon peel hoppiness to it. There is a creamy mouthfeel that seems a little odd.

Can. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a finger of thick white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and light pine. Taste is light bitter. Citrus and pine. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not too bad. Ive had some good beers from finch and this is another.

Sampled at GABF 2012. Wished I could have grabbed a six pack of this IPA. Bright and light and nice medium bitterness. Nice orange color in my sample.
