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.

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.

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 (703) - 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.

Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this can. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of biscuit malt and the resulting sweetness, as well as some pine and a little bit of orange citrus. The flavor has a lot of toffee and caramel malt in it, with some pine and a hint of grass from the hops. Low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Hmmm... Last time someone said "This is the last IPA you ever drink" I spent two weeks in the poison ward and she took off with the car and the cash... Oh well... Pour from a 1 pt can. Cloudy amber brew with dense tan head. Aroma of citrus, herbal, and floral hops. Taste is sweeter malts at the start fading to a hebal / floral hops finish. A little sour spoilage in the very finish that is off putting. A very nice IPA.

JMerritt (1806) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Canned. Dark orange with a very large, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and nectarine flesh, light spruce, orange zest and light black pepper. Mildly bitter flavor at first; bitterness increases slightly through the finish. Notes of raw straw and dried grasses pop in and out. Aftertaste has mild flavors of bready sourdough and black tea. Caramel malts become more pronounced as it warms and breathes a bit. A solid offering. Thanks to Narnad for the can.

Pours deep amber with big hints of citrus. The citrus turns to spice with a sweet malt lingered finish.

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.

On tap at capones, pours cloudy bright orange with medium off white head. Aromas and taste of bitter hops, pine, strong grains, caramel, light malts. Finish had a strong citrus hop bite. Good ipa to pair with food especially spicy stuff due to the bitterness.
