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.

wedgie9 (1930) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Tasted on 9/8/13 from a 16oz can. Pours cloudy burnt orange with a thick, fluffy white head that slowly recedes to thick, rocky lace. The nose is a balanced combination of floral citrus hops and some bread malt. The flavor is the same with the bread coming through a bit more toasted and the hops nicely bitter. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long toasted bread and bitter floral and citrus peel finish.

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Draft, Portsmouth Brewery’s guest tap. Has an orange / gold color with thin quickly vanishing head. Nose is floral with hints of citrus and caramel malt. Flavor is me is about average for a standard IPA. Flavor is caramel sweetness, light pine, plenty of floral hops. After the sip I get a lightly lingering grassy note to go with the floral hops. Maybe I have become jaded by huge Imperial brews because this just didn’t stand out to me at all. NOTHING wrong with it, very drinkable but it get lost in my memory of hundreds of IPA’s.

Cornfield (5482) - 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.

dmac (4007) - 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.

ccex (922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2012
16 ox can pours a cloudy golden color with medium head and some lacing. Smells of floral and piney hops. Aroma is the same without much else, except perhaps some malts which add a buttery note. Taste is bitter as expected, and finish is even more bitter. Average body, average carbonatation, average IPA.which I probably won’t try again although I don’t don’t regret buying a 4-pack

badnewsbeers (2313) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Bizarre. Somewhat resinous...some grain and florals...yet very harsh and soapy. Aftertaste is overkill and harsh. Lacks major balance

16 oz can. Pours clear golden with a white head. Spicy hop aroma, grapefruit. Flavors of spicy, grapefruit, pine hops as well, and some slightly stale biscuit. It’s just okay.
