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.

Pour is cloudy orange. Tan head dies quickly with minimum lacing on glass. Wonderful nose of pine, floral, sugar, caramel, and fresh bakery. Flavor is of floral hops, grapefruit, and pine. Low carbonation. I love bitter hops, but these are too bitter and overpower the other flavors. This drags the score down. Also, for this style the alcohol content is too low.

Ericular (603) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with lasting head and good lacing. Aroma is fairly strong citrus zest and pine. Taste is more malt forward. OK, but not a great IPA in my opinion.

Jabic (420) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Ar: Resin, black pepper - orange zest, grapefruit - intensity is fairly strong. Ap: Golden-orange, clear - large off-white head, great retention, leaves a rocky mountain of foam. T: Toasted malt, slight medium and light caramels - lemon and grapefruit - pine - bitterness is medium-high, clean - low sweetness - grapefruit and pine on the finish. P: Medium body with medium carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Good AIPA - hop flavor is firm and pronounced, though as sticky and pungent as some examples - it could use a bit more carbonation.

BOSSbrewer (1594) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours a hazy amber. Lots of citrus on the nose. Some malt. Finishes slightly sweet. Nice beer.

NikkTwist (1589) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Draft at Milkboy. Cloudy orange amber pour. Started with a large foamy head but it rather quickly reduced to a thin ring. No lace. Fuzzy oranges. Medium amber fruit. Cantaloupe. Light toast. Blood orange juice. Gently sweet in the middle. Dry lightly spicy finish. Fuller and smoother than most. Nicely constructed.

PorterPounder (5471) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Atlanta, GA - Taco Mac - Perimeter Center - on tap. Medium gold pour, soft snow white head with generous lacing. Aroma has some light floral accents, a brief hint of spruce. Flavor is full-bodied with some light citrus bitterness, just a touch of malty yeastiness, some caramel sweetness and light spiciness, Very "English" tasting. NIce smooth mouthfeel.

Hazy amber color. Big off white head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma of hops and malt. Some citrus. Citrusy (orange) flavor with malt in the back. Nice.

fitwitchik (292) - USA - JUN 15, 2014
Poured from a can into a pint glass a yellow orange with a white head. Aroma is bitter sweet citrus. Flavor reminds me of pineapple pine trees. Thinking this brew may be a bit past prime as in it is a touch flat but know from previous tastings this usually not the case. Overall a slightly better than average IPA.
