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.

Silphium (3178) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Draft at Taps 25, Lansing. Hazy, dirty medium orange body, thick puffy cream head. Piny nose; also citrus rind. Sweet, citrusy body, with strong tangerine/orange notes (including pulp and rind), almost candied. Fair bitterness, just enough to balance the citrus sweetness. Solid body, well-balanced and crisp. Good IPA.

On tap sample at Flying Saucer. Pours a golden color. Aroma of hops, very strong. Hops are also evident in the taste, but more towards a floral aspect instead of pine. I think the taste moves toward a citrus note. Finishes bitter and hoppy, more than i want at the end. but overall, decent IPA. I had it out of a can, it pours nicely with a thick frothy head that laces evenly. The aroma is pungent at first with notes hops, citrus, and pine. The taste is very hoppy, again with notes of citrus and pine. Good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leafs93 (1729) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, toast and floral. Taste is medium bitters and a touch of sweetness, the citrus shines through. Light to medium bodied with a smooth texture and crisp finish. Very refreshing and great at only 6% to drink a few.

From a can poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a lasting aftertaste.

lamas (1368) - Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2013
1 pint can courtesy of agl108. A hazy rust pour with a thick and creamy antique white head. Lots of pine, grapefruits, oranges, citrus rinds, and caramel in the aroma. A sizable roasty maltiness comes out as things warm up a bit. Goes down medium to full-bodied. Loads of sweet caramel maltiness upfront taste-wise that only intensifies as things warm up. There is a big earthy graininess in the middle. Some citrus rinds and grapefruits at the bitter end. A well-balanced IPA.

MaltOne (226) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 5/24/13 update - Found this locally at Otto’s in pint cans. Still good, nicely aromatic. My recall likes the tap version slightly better. 4/19/13 on tap @ Balzac - Reddish amber, slightly cloudy, pillowy head. Aromas of grapefruit and orange citrus, along with baked bread maltiness. Mouthfeel has some real substance from the malt wrapped in a well balanced citrusy hop cloak. Very drinkable, satisfying and somewhat unique profile.

Pounder->SA. Hazy orange with small white head. A: sweet fruity hops. T: sweet hops, citrus, orange, pineapple. Bittersweet aftertaste. Sweetness and depth of an imperial IPA, though not a great one.

16 oz can. Pours orange with a one finger white head. Minor lace. Aroma is orange zest & pine. Orange & pine is repeated in the flavor. Around the middle of the glass you pick up some biscuit flavor. Medium bodied with a soft easy to drink palate. New to New Hampshire & I’ll have to check out some of their other brews.
