On tap at Sharp Edge Beer Emporium. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt, light acetone, citrus, grassy hops. Flavor is sweet with a sharp hops kick in the finish. A little sweet for an IPA.

Draft. Pours a hazy amber with medium off white head. Nose is citrus, orange, grapefruit and some light pale malts. Flavor is light citrus of more orange and grapefruit, and light maltiness. Good carbonation and medium body. Good standard IPA. No complaints.

Pours cloudy apricot with a fast, tan head.
Scent is caramel, orange, peach.
Taste is a little sticky citrus peel.
Very soft bittering...90 IBU, eh....?...right.
A strong dose of fruit juice.
Tasty, but average.

I was nervous after the last exprience with this brewery but this one actually works well. A bit of bubblegum hops is always fun. Finish is a little piney and sticky. Some caramel malt and a light chewy grain sweetness working in the background.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Can from my buddy Tim - thanks! Hazy rich orange pour with a spotty white head. Really nice aroma and taste of bready/caramel malts, citrus hops, and a nice little hop punch right at the end. Good stuff.

16 oz. can. Poured a hazy, light amber with a fluffy white head. Sweet malts, bready start with a citrusy finish. Medium bodied, well balanced. Not bad but fairly unremarkable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap with J9 at Prohibition for the Finch release. Pours rich hazy orange with a thick, fluffed out head. Aroma of orange rinds, lemon zest, pine needles, and pineapple slices. Tastes of bittersweet mandarin with some nice bitter dryness in the finish. Palate is full with a supple, clean dryness to it. This is an excellent IPA and a sure bet for fans of the juicy yet bitter/dry variety. Awesome Finch.

Had on-tap at Bad Brad’s BBQ in New Baltimore, Michigan.
Average, run-in-the-mill IPA. That’s just about the best way to describe this beer... frustratingly "meh." I had this because it was the only beer on the short list of drafts that I hadn’t heard of, and I was feeling IPA.
It has a nice amber color with a small head. The lacing’s not too bad -- about average for an IPA. Average ... that’s a word you’ll be hearing a lot when describing this beer.
Threadless has a smell and taste of - get this - an average IPA! Has the floral notes in the aroma, and the hops > malts in the taste, with the bitter bite on the finish. Yeah, yeah ... not bad, nothing special.
$5.50 for a pint of this? Yikes. Threadless IPA is the very definition of a middle of the road, decent, okay, alright, fine, AVERAGE IPA. Would drink it again, but I wouldn’t pay for it again.
