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.

I purchased a 4 pack of these this weekend. I have about one nice beer each evening. Tonight, my third pint of the four pack. Sampled today with some Lays Flamin' Hot Potato Chips - a good combo. This beer has some strong flavor and is very similar to other offerings from Finch's. It reminds me of a Rye. So, I like it but I think I like "Cutthroat" a little better (which is a little less harsh but similar). This is not as hopped as I would expect or maybe its just the other strong flavors that dominate the normally floral essence of a good IPA. So.. Color=Ale color(amber..surprise!) suds = check! Lacing= who cares what are we like ladies or snobs? Mouth feel= liquidy with some foamyness lkinda like beer (oh, yeah). Overall I like it, but it is just alittle to dry on the palate and I think I will probably not return to it any time soon. It was, however, worth a try and actually pretty interesting.

Beer is an attractive, gauzy honey color with a light cream head. Aroma is citrus hops, orange, grapefruit, with some fir. Taste is light malt up front with a very bitter finish with some nice pine and citrus notes. Mouthfeel is good. It's not too heavy and is well carbonated. Overall, a very refreshing, hoppy IPA. I've been having lots of big DIPAs lately, and this is a nice change of pace. It is crisp and clean with an assertive hope presence.
