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.

Presentation- Pint can poured into a clear solo cup. No freshness dating indicated. I will take a chance on it as IPA'S stay fresher in cans.

A-Not a big bountiful head nor a small one on a semi vigorous pour but somewhere in between. Head is off white. Beer is a hazy amber color and will not clear up as it warms so I dont believe chill haze is a factor. Nothing fascinating or remarkable about its color but color is not a major concern.

S-Smells fresh and reaches your nose as it pours out of the can. The typical citrus qualities are evident. Mostly a strong orange. Faint whiffs of sweet smelling malts shine through, cotten candy like.

T&MF-A very balanced IPA. Not bitter just for the sake of being bitter but I think more attention was given to emphasize the finer qualities of the hops used. A lot of orange flavor compliments the sweet malts used. Not overly sweet like many ipa's ive had and definetly not on the dry side as I prefer but in the middle. Carbonation is maybe a tad less then what it should be but I think this contributes to a full mouthfeel.

O-I tried this per the advice of a Binnys employee and I was pleasently suprised. I will definetly pick it up again. And canned IPA's are almost always better then bottled. Its too bad a lot of brewers dont follow suit.

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.

(Served in a Nonic)
A- This beer has a spongy antique white head on a slightly hazy orange body. There is a strong carbonation of big bubbles popping off the bottom of the glass.

S- The soft mellow green citrus hops are all that come out of the clean aroma and they turn more orange as it opens but remain very soft.

T- The caramel malt note turns more biscuit as it opens with some mellow green hops turning pungent after the dry finish.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- This is a nice mellow British ale that shows a good malt character but the hop pungency is bitter and really covers and dominates the whole flavor. It is a bit hard to drink because of the bitterness.
