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.

I had it out of a can, it pours nicely with a thick frothy head that laces evenly. The aroma is pungent at first with notes hops, citrus, and pine. The taste is very hoppy, again with notes of citrus and pine. Good IPA.

Orange-amber with frothy white head. Floral, citrus, grapefruit, and sweet / burnt malt aroma notes. Full bodied, creamy texture, mild alcohol notes, and lemon notes. Medium, lasting bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

can. to be honest, I have no idea of it’s color/appearance - I went straight from the can. Very solid IPA - smooth, yet hoppy. Super easy to drink. Liked it.

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Draft at Taps 25, Lansing. Hazy, dirty medium orange body, thick puffy cream head. Piny nose; also citrus rind. Sweet, citrusy body, with strong tangerine/orange notes (including pulp and rind), almost candied. Fair bitterness, just enough to balance the citrus sweetness. Solid body, well-balanced and crisp. Good IPA.

Nice color amber red. Nice spicy hops. A little thin on the palate. Not sure if the carbonation level is right. The malts are outshone by the hops as well. Not well balanced. Good beer not great.

Can. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a finger of thick white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and light pine. Taste is light bitter. Citrus and pine. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not too bad. Ive had some good beers from finch and this is another.

Aroma: Floral and citrus hops with hints of spruce at the edges. Appearance: Clear pale gold with a rich, white head. Taste: Immediate medium bitterness with a light sourness in the finish. Palate: Medium-full body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, long finish. Overall: Pretty typical IPA. I’m not undone, but I’m not disappointed, either. A fairly solid, well developed beer.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2012
1 pint can. Quite a full can. Hazy orange color. Good thick off-white head. Leaves good lace. Good smooth texture. Lighter carbonation. Medium body. Texture is more dry, but not too dry. Really nice fruity hoppy flavor. Light pine. Bigger citrus (orange). Light pepperiness. Good bitter taste, good citrus peel zest. Yup, this is a great IPA. Especially impressive flavor for the lower ABV.
