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.

Im really starting to enjoy beers in cans.
A-Looks great, I like an unfiltered beer with little tasty goodies floating around in it. Nice creamy head, beautiful deep golden color.
S-I absolutely love the smell. There is just something about a well balanced IPA that just does it for me. I get a huge wiff of malt, and then the hops slap you. Its quite nice.
T-Mmmm and then you taste it. My first reaction was wow, this is malty! A nice change from all the hop-overkill IPAs Ive had recently. I havent had a IPA like this in awhile. Its really great and I dont normally score beers this high. The Columbus hops are earthy and pungent and kinda dank. Maybe a little bit of pine. I dont get citrus, and I like that. The malts they chose compliment the hops and its such a good blend. A bitter, malty treat for sure.
M-This is one really smooth drinking beer. Creamy head and its like silk going down. Some might want a dryer or lighter IPA, but this ones a bit more full bodied, almost chewy. I love it. Its a rare thing for me to score a brew this high.
Overall, this is one killer, delicious beer. If you see it, grab it! You wont be disappointed. Beer in cans is great!

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!

Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this can.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of biscuit malt and the resulting sweetness, as well as some pine and a little bit of orange citrus. The flavor has a lot of toffee and caramel malt in it, with some pine and a hint of grass from the hops. Low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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.
