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.

kseecs16 (1207) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Can. Pours an orange hued amber with a soapy off-white head tha tleaves rings of whisply lacing down the glass and settles in to sporadic clumps. Quite citrusy aroma with some sweet sugary floral notes. Somewhat light bodied with a significant dry bitterness. Not bad and the lingering bitterness is pleasant but lacks a little punch of flavor that would put it over the edge.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a white head and strong aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is of hops, pine, citrus, and grapefruit with a heavy and lingering bitter finish. Nice brew.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Can: The aroma consists of caramel, fruit, and light grapefruit. It pours a hazy amber with some sediment floating around. It has a two finger orange tinged off-white head that has very good retention and leaves some nice lacing rings. The flavor starts with some sweet citrus and caramel. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and a hint of toasted notes. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, I generally don’t score IPAs with caramel notes highly. I didn’t really score this high, but the caramel notes in this IPA didn’t bother me as much as they usually do.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Can. pours medium orange. Intense rich maltiness and Strong spicy citrusy and floral hops with some caramel malts. Flavor is similar but lends more hop and malt blended complexities. Medium full body, creamy, and moderate bitterness on the finish. Really tasty.

tcane7 (1668) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
16 oz can. Pours a very murky golden orange with hop particles, thick off white head, and fantastic lacing. Nose is mostly caramel malt with a little piney and muted citrus hops. The hops come through more with the taste. PIneapple, citrus, pine. Real strong bitterness, borderline palate wrecker.

Sampled at GABF 2012. Wished I could have grabbed a six pack of this IPA. Bright and light and nice medium bitterness. Nice orange color in my sample.

ChainGangGuy (4423) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
16 ounce can - $2.09 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, golden-amber body in hue with a tall, thickish, off-white head that collapses leaving gooey remnants along the glass walls.

Smell: Threadless smells of honey-brushed, lightly toasty grains, loaf bread with packed, blended hop notes ranging from florals, to grasses, to citrus fruits, to moist pine needles.

Taste: Moderately sweet honeyish tone amidst the toasted barley grains and bread. Then, some orange oil, grapefruit, resinous tones, plus some firm leafiness. Medium-high bitterness. All those hop flavors linger while the maltiness and sweetness quickly drops away leaving a chewy albeit bitter and dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. A bit chewy and creamy, actually.

Overall: Fairly decent India Pale Ale.
