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.

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 (2156) - 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!

vandc01 (334) - North Branch, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Poured from a 16oz can. Aroma - almost a green apple / caramel smell. Appearace - slightly hazy golden pour with almost zero head. Taste - Citrus with a backbone of bitterness....not bad. Palate - Smooth - not too carbonated... Overall - not too bad. A little light on the body, but a decent beer.

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2014
A cloudy orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is piney and tropical fruit. The flavor is floral and fruity with a solid maltiness.

Can from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Bought in Can randomly and what a pleasant surprise. Hazy orange body with big head. Nose is hoppy, floral. Very good taste of hops, graperfruit and floral. With just a really nice bitter kick to it. Excellent.

milewide (2031) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Wonderful, cloudy, amber color. Firm body with average head. Hop aroma was fruity, but hop after taste was just bitter.

crossovert (11105) - Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2014 Literally a pineapple bomb. Not super tropical but the pineapple flavor is there big time. It is juicy with a medium bitterness. It is good.

demitriustown (1184) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2012
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!

Gachupines (1247) - USA - SEP 3, 2012
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.
