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.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
16oz can. Pours a hazy amber color with a two finger white head that leaves good lacing and falls to a cap. Aroma is apricot, some citrus rind, herbal, grassy, floral hops and a bit of pine, and a decent amount of caramel malt. Flavor is orange citrus, apricot, pine, resinous hops, good caramel malt backbone offering some sweetness, that finishes with good bitterness, and mild alcohol. Medium bodied, creamy, good carbonation.

jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Pours a clear gold with a creamy white head. Smells of mostly piney/citrusy hops. Very little malt detectable, but also had food at the table so didnt get the best nose. Holy bitter Batman! Pine and more pine from the hops and a weird roasted barley thing. The malt profile almost seems like something out of a stout. Everything combined together just made this a complete bitter bomb. Not well balanced at all and the flavors didnt work together. Mouthfeel and carbonation were about what youd expect from an IPA. Not worth it. I love IBUs and have had very few beers ever Ive described as "too bitter" but this one is way unbalanced.

MaBeer1972 (1980) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Single can from Julios. Pours out a cloudy light amber. Little to no head. Light sweet malty aromas. Flavor is interestingly bitter up front. Almost like eating coffee beans. Watery mouthfeel. Cant get over that extreme dry bitterness though. This is a mess!

HonusWagner (2159) - Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Aroma of Pineapple, caramel, a little bit...minty? Lightly sweet flavor, modest bitterness on the finish, taste isnt exactly world-shattering but a solid all-around IPA flavor. Good beer, most notable for being extremely cloudy with lots of floating sediment.

AirForceHops (6963) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Draft, Portsmouth Brewerys guest tap. Has an orange / gold color with thin quickly vanishing head. Nose is floral with hints of citrus and caramel malt. Flavor is me is about average for a standard IPA. Flavor is caramel sweetness, light pine, plenty of floral hops. After the sip I get a lightly lingering grassy note to go with the floral hops. Maybe I have become jaded by huge Imperial brews because this just didnt stand out to me at all. NOTHING wrong with it, very drinkable but it get lost in my memory of hundreds of IPAs.

davidajensen (206) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2013
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.

mike5326 (1726) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Poured from tap. Hazy orange color, small white head. Average hops, glowers and citrus smell. Full oily bodied beer with a long lasting flavor and a bold bitter finish

Cloudy orange color, not much head. Great citrus aroma, with an oily, bitter grapefruit rind finish. Disappointing after the great smell.

Tasted on 9/8/13 from a 16oz can. Pours cloudy burnt orange with a thick, fluffy white head that slowly recedes to thick, rocky lace. The nose is a balanced combination of floral citrus hops and some bread malt. The flavor is the same with the bread coming through a bit more toasted and the hops nicely bitter. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long toasted bread and bitter floral and citrus peel finish.
