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.

Deep orange pour. Aroma is pretty strong of caramel malts and some moderate grapefruit hopping. Caramel comes across fairly thick in the flavor as well, along with an astringent grapefruit pine bitterness. Rustic, grassy character. Jello-like on the palate. Not bad, just not that enjoyable.

Wonderful, cloudy, amber color. Firm body with average head. Hop aroma was fruity, but hop after taste was just bitter.

I had this on tap at the Blind Robin in Chicago, IL after going to the 3 Floyds Brewpub with some good friends. I didn’t like this at all. It was too sweet, especially in the caramel malt department, and the only reason why I ordered this was because it was the only beer I haven’t rated at the bar and I wanted to try it. I can’t say I’m a fan of the clothing company, and I’m really not a fan of this beer. Threadless, I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

1 pint can courtesy of agl108. A hazy rust pour with a thick and creamy antique white head. Lots of pine, grapefruits, oranges, citrus rinds, and caramel in the aroma. A sizable roasty maltiness comes out as things warm up a bit. Goes down medium to full-bodied. Loads of sweet caramel maltiness upfront taste-wise that only intensifies as things warm up. There is a big earthy graininess in the middle. Some citrus rinds and grapefruits at the bitter end. A well-balanced IPA.

Pounder->SA. Hazy orange with small white head. A: sweet fruity hops. T: sweet hops, citrus, orange, pineapple. Bittersweet aftertaste. Sweetness and depth of an imperial IPA, though not a great one.

Relatively average IPA. Minimal lacing. Clean bitter finish. I don't think I'll seek this out again. Not bad though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep amber with big hints of citrus. The citrus turns to spice with a sweet malt lingered finish.

Can.
Appearance: Murky orange/amber body with no head.
Aroma: Grassy, slightly earthy, some orange.
Taste: Odd grassy/orange pith flavor with a grassy, herbal and sweet orange finish. Malts are noticed adding sweetness.
Palate: Medium bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: Not sure what to think of this. I can drink it, but I don’t enjoy it.

MaBeer1972 (1246) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Single can from Julio’s. Pours out a cloudy light amber. Little to no head. Light sweet malty aromas. Flavor is interestingly bitter up front. Almost like eating coffee beans. Watery mouthfeel. Can’t get over that extreme dry bitterness though. This is a mess!

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
