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.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Draft at Haymarket. Pours a pretty deep, almost copper with a white head. Nose is kind of bland. Some generic citrusy hops and caramel come through. I still dont understand why brewers feel the need to throw a big caramel component into an IPA. Anyway, pretty generic. On taste, it is quite bitter and pretty fruity. More of the caramel notes. Im just not into this...

16oz can shared by Dan P. Pours a hazy orange color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet citrus fruit, grapefruit zest, and caramel malt. Taste is much the same. Bitter citrus skins, grapefruit rind, and sweet caramel malt.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Finchs threadless ipa. On tap at Sheffields... Pours a semi- transparent amber reddish brown hue and topped with a creamy barely off-white head... Aroma ... Flavors have a balancing degree of citrusy piney hop focus with what seems to be a crystal malt backend. A bit more focused on more of the malty front when comsumed after a couple of daisy cutters, mind whoever is reading. Medium to somewhat full bodied with an adequate level of carbonation. Its gowin on me as I have it. Citrus becomes more apparent and pretty drinkable. 7/4/7/3/14

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Serving: 16 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a muddy orange with a small, off white head. Lots of yeasties floating around in this brew. There are light notes of orange and grapefruit. The flavor seems to lack a nice hop punch. Some earthy malts with that orange and grapefruit making an encore. Medium bodied. Rather average in the IPA world.

From the pint can. The pour is a hazy golden amber with a lingering off-white head. The aroma is malty and buttery more than hoppy but the hops are more earthy than any other sensation. The body is medium but also rather astringent and oily. The taste has a kind of off-hoppiness with the buttery and pale malts.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2011
On tap at Birds and Blokes in Chicago. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweeter citruses with some piney resins and a sweeter caramel backing. Oranges, tangerines, and a bit of a grapefruit. Flavor is similar. Sweet orange and bitter grapefruit pines with some juicy tangerines. Balancing, sweeter caramel malts with a touch of bread. Finishes dry with a moderate bitterness and some juicy citrus resins. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a very tasty IPA. Easy drinking and balanced with lots of citrusy, resiny hops and a solid caramel.

pineypower (3247) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Capones. Pours out a moderately hazy orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of light citrus, dusty hay, light pine and some biscuity malt notes; body is a bit thin. Taste is of some white grapefruit bitterness, light pine, bready/toasty malts, and another punch of white grapfruit hop bitterness in the finish.

Relatively average IPA. Minimal lacing. Clean bitter finish. I don't think I'll seek this out again. Not bad though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silphium (3196) - 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.

Lukaduke (3160) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 1, 2013
New to the state of Maine. Can pours a rich orange copper color with a two plus finger of sticky off white foam. Bright hop aromas of pineapple, light toasted malt and a touch of citrus. The palate follows the nose nicely with a nice creamy round mouthfeel. Soft fruit on the front to mid palate with touches of stonefruit and a grassy bitter finish...
