Notes/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.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #70 (November 2012):

Good call on the “tall-boy” can format. Very aggressive hopping here, a bit of a occupy our palates going on here and it works. Serious hop heads need try and anyone wanting to jump in with both feet. Each sip our taste buds get pummeled with hops and we can’t help but to go back for more. Very well done!

Malt and fruity, herbal hops on the nose. Pours Hazy gold-amber with a 1” lightly gold tinted foam collar. This is a hop driven beer that features melon, orange and citrus flavors over a malt backbone and finishes with some hop astringency that complements the hop bitterness. Medium body and medium low carbonation.

As a beer this is ok...run of the mill. As an IPA it is below average. Aroma is unremarkable (and that is being kind), taste is a mix of wet toasted malt and lemon peel. Has a sharp, astringent finish. With so many great IPA's on the market this is well below average for the class which is how I scored it.
