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.

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.

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

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

Poured from a pint can into a big tulip class

A - Dark honey in color/slight copper with a very nice white head that leaved a significant lacing.

S - Out of this world, getting candied fruity malts, some grassy scent very powerful scent

T - Lots of fruit; mango, papaya, tangerine. Sweetness on the front with a nice bitter kick at the end that leaves a lasting finish.

M - Medium bodied and medium carbonation

O - A Very hoppy, forceful brew, not for the weak of heart with lots of interesting tastes

Pours a deep, clear copper with a rather small sudsy head that dissipated quickly. I poured about 6-7oz in a snifter for the pour but still expected more head.

I could smell it as it was pouring, 3 feet from my nose. Candied fruit, mango, slight grassiness or herbal notes, sweetened cereal grains.

I personally get sweet tropical fruit up front. Hop forward but a noticeable midrange malt. The bitterness is noticeable but doesnt come until the finish.

My first sip made me thing, great body before taste notes jumped out. Just a generally enjoyable, drinkable liquid.

I like this and think it deserves a few more points than it has gotten. Enjoyable, very easy to drink and worth a try.

Picked up this to get more can reviews!

A - Standard IPA with a bright clear amber brown body and a 1/2 inch of sticky white head.
S - Smells some hops and herbal like malts, nothing offensive.
T - Slightly herbal yet more malt forward this IPA doesn't seem to impress or sooth any hop lovers palate, still it leaves a bitter finish on the after taste.
M - On par easy to drink with a light to medium body.
Overall I picked this one up for $2.69 which is fairly affordable for a craft single pounder still their are better IPA's so try something else!

I have to say that this IPA is not that interesting. Heavy earthy tone with a muddled overall character and very little hop influence dominate things; at least so far as I would expect an IPA to be. Not a very interesting interpretation of the style, I have to say.
