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.

Tap at The Map Room. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, frothy and bubbly cream colored head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is medium malt (toast, cereal), heavy hops (earthy, herbal, pine, citrus), and average esters (fruity) with notes of pineapple and alcohol. Flavor is heavy hops with supporting malt and light alcohol. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation with a dry finish.

Pours an hazy amber reddish color. Nose is citrus and pine, with a tangerine and peach nose predominating, quite pleasant nose. Taste is all citrus with very heavy bitterness at first than settles down quite delightfully. Finish is moderately long with some sweetness. Nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

Fresh can into a nonic pint. Pours deep gold with a slight white head, moderate lacing. Big grass and citrus aroma, pine, pineapple. Taste is grassy, piney, fruity, assertively bitter with a hit of sticky resin sweetness before finishing dry. My kind of IPA!

This really nice IPA poured a cloudy copper color with virtually no head. The nose was well-balanced and inviting, with notes of sweet malt, grassy hops, lemon, grapefruit and a slight touch of wheat. The body was very smooth and drinkable and featured plenty of hops. The flavors are balanced very nicely with some caramel malt and wheat. Besides the floral and grassy hops, I tasted some lemon, grapefruit and pine. The beer finished dry, mellow and creamy.

First off -- this is the kind of ipa that we crave & fight & pull our hair over about in Canada. Solid, sessionable & tasty. Pours deep orange with a nice fluffy cap. Aroma is rich with pine. Tastes great: hoppy, juicy & slightly citrus. If I could get this easily it’d be my regular. Luckily I got four of ’em before i hopped the border. Mail some to me & I won’t return to sender.

Can: Orange peel and pine nose with a kiss of clover honey. Shimmering amber, thick firm pale yellow head. Pleasantly bitter pine needle flavor, grapefruit finish. Alcohol not noticeable, thinnish mouthfeel. Nice transitions, drinkable. Nicely done.
