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.

PorterPounder (5339) - 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.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2014
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 (234) - 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.

A bit malty on the nose and in the flavor but otherwise solidly hoppy and well put together

hayduke (3317) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 10, 2014
This was courtesy of Doran in Missouri. Thanks. Poured amber with a big white head and excellent lacing. Nose of caramel malts and citrus. Medium body. The flavor is both floral and citrus and there is a solid bitterness that continues on into to the finish. Well crafted IPA and quite enjoyable.

Can. Clear amber with a big eggshell head. Aroma is floral with hints of melon and caramel malt. Taste is similar but adds a roasty and earthy note. A little weird but not awful. Rich smooth mouthfeel. Kind of an odd beer but still enjoyable.

bubbleflubber (1743) - 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!

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Rich, super cloudy amber and copper coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall tan head - very nice looking. Aroma of fresh grassy hops, alcohol, a good malt backbone, some light fruits and a very herbal and slightly resinous note. Medium-bodied; Very bitter hops up front showing grapefruit that have no depth at all - very mild after the first initial sip with not much malt coming through and only a touch of fruit or strength, the hops hit hard at first but are left with almost nothing just a few seconds later. Aftertaste shows the grassy and herbal hops with a little pale malt and very little else - not much going on, and not much complexity at all. Overall, a decent IPA with some good smells and a quick bitterness that basically fades to just about nothing at the end aside from herbs and grass. I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 30-March-2014 for US$2.79 sampled at home in Washington on 30-May-2014.

bookman10 (621) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a cloudy, pale, golden yellow, with minimal head. Aroma has some hops and some citrus zest. Flavor is very grassy, the hops are pretty muted, and there’s a fairly sweet undercurrent. Not one of the better IPAs I’ve tried.

nsquishee (585) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Smells dank and orangey. Pours an orange-tinted blonde color with a thin, quickly-diminishing head. Very smooth bitterness up front, but leaves an oily hop bitterness on the finish. Tastes like a dank, west-coast IPA. It’s ok.
