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.

Pailhead (6540) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Can: The aroma consists of caramel, fruit, and light grapefruit. It pours a hazy amber with some sediment floating around. It has a two finger orange tinged off-white head that has very good retention and leaves some nice lacing rings. The flavor starts with some sweet citrus and caramel. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and a hint of toasted notes. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, I generally don’t score IPAs with caramel notes highly. I didn’t really score this high, but the caramel notes in this IPA didn’t bother me as much as they usually do.

ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Location: Can at Monkey Bar in Philthy, 11/16/13

Aroma: The nose is grassy and hoppy, some pine, earth, citrus, and a hint of butter
Appearance: It pours a heavy golden-amber color with an off-white head
Flavor: The taste is pretty nice and hoppy, but then that buttery malt flavor kicks in
Palate: The body is medium, it has a pretty nice feel, and drinks really easily
Overall Impression: I thought this was a good attempt at an IPA with some nice hoppy components to it, but there’s a bit of a buttery malt flavor that just really hampers the quality of the beer overall.

Draft pour. Pours a hazed copper with a white head of foamm. The aroma is papery, it has lemon, angel food cake, some lime. The taste is moderately sweet. No real bitterness. Medium to low bitterness. Kind of a shitty ipa, but I guess if it is old, the beer can’t be held accountable. It just really is not very good.

mansquito (6438) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Total Wine, Fairfax 4-pack: Pours amber color with off-white head. Aroma is grapefuit, pine, and fairly hefty malt. Taste is pretty bitter, but is also combined with a caramely sweetness. Ain’t the greatest IPA. I would have prefered it to be less malty.

Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Murky copper, huge beige head. Lots of grapefruit and caramel in the aroma. Very hop forward flavor. More grapefruit, and a woody note or two. Some caramel, as well..

Can: Orange peel and pine nose with a kiss of clover honey. Shimmering amber, thick firm pale yellow head. Pleasantly bitter pine needle flavor, grapefruit finish. Alcohol not noticeable, thinnish mouthfeel. Nice transitions, drinkable. Nicely done.

500ml can courtesy of Brian. Slightly hazy orange tan. Thin, off white head. Dry citrus hop aroma. Clean, some toasty golden malt tones and a solid hop bill. A faint touch of butter, but not overwhelming. Overall pretty solid offering, crisp hoppy IPA.

jgb9348 (6269) - 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.

dmac (6264) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2014
16oz can from Crossroads. Poured a cloudy nectar orange body under a dense foamy light beige head. Aroma of oranges, potpourri, tea bagsand some baby aspirin. Chalky medium body with a drier finish and softer to average carbonation. Flavor is citrus rind, old oranges, wet toast, tea, brown bread. Not great but not bad. Straight out of the can would probably make this even better.
