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.

rangerred (926) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Poured into a pint glass out of a growler. Pours a nearly clear medium copper with a one finger white head. Some light lacing on the sides of the glass along with a small layer of fizz on top of the beer. The aroma is much more Earthy than fruity with tree bark, soil, and an overall dank quality about it. A touch of pine is thrown in but the aroma is far from piny. The flavor continues this earthy character. I pick up on the dankness much more in the flavor along with more pine and tree bark. There is perhaps a touch of overripe orange but the fruit is very understated. Bitterness is on the high side with a good mouthfeel and just a touch of stickiness on the finish. Overall, a good IPA but there is really nothing about it that makes it stand out from all of the others out there. Good to drink but forgettable afterwards.

Jabic (429) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Ar: Resin, black pepper - orange zest, grapefruit - intensity is fairly strong. Ap: Golden-orange, clear - large off-white head, great retention, leaves a rocky mountain of foam. T: Toasted malt, slight medium and light caramels - lemon and grapefruit - pine - bitterness is medium-high, clean - low sweetness - grapefruit and pine on the finish. P: Medium body with medium carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Good AIPA - hop flavor is firm and pronounced, though as sticky and pungent as some examples - it could use a bit more carbonation.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Solid IPA. I was fairly surprised after having the Golden Wing. Pours orange with an off white head. Citrus aroma and flavor that blends well with the caramel malt. Not a bad regular beer.

Tmoney99 (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Draft. Poured a hazy copper color with an average creamy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.

Scipio (701) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Pours a golden with a full frothy white head. Aroma is very citrus, with grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, and grape. Grapefruit is the dominant taste with more orange undertones. The citrus really stands out here. The darker aromas are no longer present. Very bitter aftertaste. Not much of the hoppy IPA bite that I was expecting, and more light and smooth than others of this style. Pretty enjoyable overall, but as an IPA, about average for my tastes.
