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.

Very hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish and airy with mild carbonation. Fresh orange hops, little pith and marmalade. Touch of grapefruit. Mild malt cream underneath. Finishes soft with mild bitterness. Just a really nice fresh IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2013 Bronze colored with a moderate fluffy head. The aroma is bright and hoppy; grapefruit, pine, floral notes, as well as a little caramel malt. The body is slick with some sweet malt; sharp bitter fruity, grassy, and resinous hops counter that nicely. Quite dry in the finish with lots of lingering hop bitterness. This is a very good IPA.

Anova167 (283) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Nice copper color with nice lacing left by the head. Nice piney resin aroma, but you can sniff the malt backbone. Flavor is hop forward with astringent piney bitterness. Finish is dry. Pretty damn good.

Nose is of sweet toffee or caramel. Little head. Light bodied and very smooth, like a draft beer. Rich and citrusy hops with a firm malt sweetness serving as a backbone. The bitterness is assertive but not overpowering, by any stretch, and lingers on in a somewhat dry finish. This is a very well blended beer, and is reminiscent of a really good draft IPA.

Tasty beer. It is a little to bitter to make it sessionable, but it is nice full, hoppy beer. Orangish in color and very hazy. The hops are oily and leave quite a bit of lacing. There is quite a bit of pine in the aroma.

Can poured into a standard pint glass. Pours a hazy orange with a one finger fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, orange, tangerine, wheat, and caramel malt. Pine and caramel malt come on strong up front with tangerine, grapefruit, wheat, and white bread backing it. Great long bitter, dry finish of caramel malt, citrus and pine. Medium to light body, smooth somewhat creamy texture, lively carbonation. What I like about this is very hoppy, but it isn’t over hopped. Excellent hop balance. Very fresh and crisp. I may have found a new go-to IPA for this summer!

bubbleflubber (1816) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours cloudy orange into the glass, with a nice eggshell head that reduces to thick ring lacing. The nose is of musty orange citrus. Flavors are well-bittered from beginning to end, with orange and lemon upfront, and a decent grain bill hitting mid-palate. The close is nice and of lingering peppery bitters. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a juicy palate and medium-soft carbonation. Drinkability and complexity meet in the middle, with a substantive nature that goes down very nicely. Well-bittered for the hop head, this is a nice IPA!

Wonderful, cloudy, amber color. Firm body with average head. Hop aroma was fruity, but hop after taste was just bitter.

1 Pint can: Aroma has got a big hop note to it. Big on the citrus (grapefruit) and resin notes. Appearance is a clear golden with a hint of amber and a thick off white head that lingers. Taste is pretty good stuff a little too resin like and a bit sticky in the mouth, but all around not that bad at all. Palate is sticky in the mouth and a lingering bitter aftertaste with the slightest amount of grapefruit lingering. Overall, It’s good stuff. I could dink another of these. Cheers!

Pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy with some grapefruit tones. Flavor is solidly hoppy, big grapefruit flavor. Nice bitterness in the finish. Could use a little more malt to round out the finish. Overall, very solid IPA, works quite well for a hot day.
