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.

Poured from the can a lightly hazy amber-gold color with two fingers of off-white head. A touch of lacing left behind.

The aroma was heavy with caramel malts and vanilla along with a lighter hit of orange and grassy hops.

Like the aroma, the taste was caramel malts and vanilla upfront with a big bitter hop bite of orange and grass. The heavy bitterness lingers through the finish.

Medium bodied and a tad sticky with a moderate carbonation.

More caramel focused than I would have liked in an IPA. Still, not bad.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Ale pours a cloudy yellow tinged amber with fluffy white head that dies down to thin foam layer with nice lacing and some sediment floating in there....very different for a canned beer. Nose is malty with a citrusy lemon and orange waft mingling in with spicy hops. Taste is up front bittering hops, orange and lemon characteristics on the back with a white pepper like aftertaste playing around a light sweet malt characteristic. Moderate carbonation on the moutfeel makes it pleasurable, yet not that balanced or well rounded at all. Not the most memorable of the Finch's brand, decent, but would not go out of my way to find it again.
