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.

Draft. Pours clear copper with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Tastes very hoppy, dry, bitter, malty, with hints of grapefruit. Light body and medium carbonation. Mild aroma of hops, malts, and citrus.

Can. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a finger of thick white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and light pine. Taste is light bitter. Citrus and pine. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not too bad. Ive had some good beers from finch and this is another.

DrnkMcDermott (2881) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Draft sample: STILL have some notes from the 2011 Midwest Brewers Fest. A little darker and cloudier than the Uinta WYLD I just had. Thin, clingy head of foam. Smell shows some good Cascades, a little citrus and pine. Good citrusy hop taste to it too. Caramel malts and crystal involved in sending it down very nicely. A lot more hop in the backstop.

50belair (2877) - Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
On tap at the Beer Bistro. Cloudy copper color with a white head. Grapefruity hop aromas. Grapefruit and tropical fruit hops nicely offset by the caramel malt backbone. A nice IPA...

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.

tmoreau (2830) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2012
On tap at the annual CBS picnic, and self served to clear plastic with a hazed, orange/amber hue, a thick amount of creamy head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was light grain, citrus as grapefruit and some orange, light sweetness, and a touch of resin. The flavor presented an earthy, pungent, and very lingering hop bitterness, but enough malt to smooth the edge a bit. Well carbonated, and medium bodied, it paired well with the spicy picnic faire, and was my IPA choice of the day.

rondphoto (2696) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 4, 2014
can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with a bubbly ivory head, streaks of lace. Taste is malt with a dash of caramel that grows into the palate adding solid citrus hops on the swallow, then moving back toward the malt as the finish fades. A polite but solid IPA.

pineypower (2690) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Capones. Pours out a moderately hazy orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of light citrus, dusty hay, light pine and some biscuity malt notes; body is a bit thin. Taste is of some white grapefruit bitterness, light pine, bready/toasty malts, and another punch of white grapfruit hop bitterness in the finish.

Small, tight beaded tan head with fair retention and decent lacing. Grapefruit, catty nose, nice. Body is medium and a bit chewy with an almost prickly carbonation, lil resiny. Dry malts, lil toasty with some danky hoppyness, earthy, grapefruity and juicy. Dry finish, some fruit, melon and a nice assy bite. Can from statelineliquors.
