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.

can purchased from wegmans, enjoyed chilled from a teku with tb69

The color is good, light apricot with mild haze and thick pale head which retains okay. The smell is ordinary with mostly herbal aromas, very light citrus element. The feel is decent, however the bitterness overwhelms with mild sweetness and carbonation with semidry finish.

The taste follows suit, not bad, but not exceptional it has the traditional by the numbers hops though in the taste with a slight pine tinge and mild citrus but more leafy herbal bitterness than anything with a slight caramel which doesn't really compliment the hops. Overall This is not a bad beer, not a bad IPA even...but there are better examples of the style, this is worth a try if you haven't had it

A - Light orange body and decent white head. Some retention and really nice lacing.

S - Not too aromatic, but slightly malty and apple

T - Mostly bitter, pine and floral. Deep earthy malt base keeps the beer from having any sweetness. A spicy aftertaste lingers nicely.

M - Not digging the mouthfeel at all; thin and watery.

O - This beer has good flavor but the body is so weak it washes away before the glass hits the table. It's as if I'm drinking a great double IPA that someone watered down and split between two glasses. Maybe this is a decent session beer but ultimately not for me.

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.

Poured from the can into a Dogfish Head Ale glass.

Deep orange amber, cloudy with a buttery looking appearance. Head barely makes one finger of light tan off white colored head. Thin bubbles and a little bit foamy, some minor lacing but settles to a nice simple collar.

Nose is weakened orange hop angles, and breakfast juice. A good bit of dank earth quality in the mix as well to go with it. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

Palate is very light on feel and almost watery but makes for easy drinking. Hop earth angle hits with a little bit of citrus sweetness of orange and tangerine to match. Finishes earthy and muddy dirt bitterness in the swallow but tolerable. Subsequent sips and swallows emphazise the earth more and give to a minty finish quality.

Overall not bad, quite an easy drinking IPA I must say, but perhaps not that memorable either.
