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.

As a beer this is ok...run of the mill. As an IPA it is below average. Aroma is unremarkable (and that is being kind), taste is a mix of wet toasted malt and lemon peel. Has a sharp, astringent finish. With so many great IPA's on the market this is well below average for the class which is how I scored it.

Palate is a medium body, moderate carbonation. Finish is caramel malt, yeast, citrus orange notes with moderate floral citrus hops bitterness on the end. Overall fairly good IPA

Caramel. Cloudy. Caramel colored, darker amber, murky, with good lacing after a short lived head. 3.5

S: Caramel over topped with hay and fresh cut grass. Muted, muddy like it looks. 3.6

T: . Caramel Malt sweetness, grainy, and bready run into the hop bitterness in the finish. A bit muddy, earthy with lots of wet hay, apples, and cut grass as the keynotes in the finale. 3.6

MF: Pretty interesting. Well carbonated, almost creamy, and a drying, pectin like finish of fall fruit. Definitely an autumnal IPA 3.6

Overall - a Different take on IPA - very prairie and grassy, muddy river, and autumnal. even a little cheesy. Letting a portion warm to celler temp, it gets more aromatic and cheesy, so would be a great cheese beer like all the ones from Finch.
