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.

Went to a tasting of there beers.... All are really nice, this is no exeption

Pour is a hazy light amber with a half finger of white head.

Smell is gapefruit, swet malt, sweet lemon and pine

Taste is bitter orange, grapefruit, caramel malt, lemon and a sweet citrus back end!

Mouthefeel Starts light and builds to medium, really nice....

Really nice IPA, will get a lot more that is for sure!

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

This one poured a cloudy dark golden with a fluffy ivory head that laced quite well. Smell was fresh citus hop (mostly lemon with grapefruit close behind) and a bit of slightly catty pine. Taste was pretty much in line with smell. However there was a grappy linger just like concorde grape skins. Carb is pretty creamy, but final mouth feel is a bit puckering (those grape skins I mentioned). All in all it still works though. I'm a bit surprised by the 81 score, because I see no real flaws and think this is a well done brew. I'd have no problem what-so-ever recommending it.

This 16 oz. can poured into a snifter.

It ours a feint yellow with low retention. It smells hoppy. Big malt taste and then a very piney hop finish with a boozy after taste that creeps up your throat. I like this beer and the fact that it comes from a can is great for pool season.
