Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Ale pours a cloudy yellow tinged amber with fluffy white head that dies down to thin foam layer with nice lacing and some sediment floating in there....very different for a canned beer. Nose is malty with a citrusy lemon and orange waft mingling in with spicy hops. Taste is up front bittering hops, orange and lemon characteristics on the back with a white pepper like aftertaste playing around a light sweet malt characteristic. Moderate carbonation on the moutfeel makes it pleasurable, yet not that balanced or well rounded at all. Not the most memorable of the Finch's brand, decent, but would not go out of my way to find it again.
