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.

Tall boy. Standard IPA aroma. Very heavy hop flavor with slight floral notes. Very bitter at the finish.

My favorite finch’s by far. Pours a clear light amber with a solid off white head. Aroma s interesting, very shallow yet strong. That doesn’t make a lot of sense but really smell it. Flavor is quite a hoppy mouthful. Strong hops. Bitter, too. Not too shabby, 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.

Can poured into a pint..nice color..aroma is a bit lacking..pleasant bitter finish with a small hop presence..good..comes across as quite fresh which is a plus and has a solid mouthfeel..almost creamy finish..a decent single ipa..Not getting much of the citrus from the profile

Aroma: Floral and citrus hops with hints of spruce at the edges. Appearance: Clear pale gold with a rich, white head. Taste: Immediate medium bitterness with a light sourness in the finish. Palate: Medium-full body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, long finish. Overall: Pretty typical IPA. I’m not undone, but I’m not disappointed, either. A fairly solid, well developed beer.

screigh (462) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Pours a very hazy orange straw color. Thin white head that stayed the whole glass and left some nice lacing. Malt and some hops in the aroma. Very creamy mouthfeel and it tastes like this was whole cone hoped. Very grassy, earthy characteristics.

I had it out of a can, it pours nicely with a thick frothy head that laces evenly. The aroma is pungent at first with notes hops, citrus, and pine. The taste is very hoppy, again with notes of citrus and pine. Good IPA.

ARH (457) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap poured into a shaker. The initial aroma is kinda burnt toast, but this fades and gives way to a strong citrus and spruce combination. I light caramel note comes in late. It pours a clear honey orange color with a creamy off-white head that retains a thick creamy layer across the surface as well as leaves a good amount of sheet lacing. The taste is a medium high bitter with a medium sweetness to it. The oily texture has a medium light body and creamy carbonation and it finishes with a sprucey, warm caramel, citrus and citrus peel finish. It’s a dry beer with a strong spruce / resin aftertaste.

burgy (455) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Very mild easy drinking IPA. It has all the proper notes but they are just slightly too subtly... Take a note from Surly and do everything in a can BIG!

Bottle to glass. Pours a clear rich amber color with a decent size light tan head with heavy lacing. Aroma is a pleasant combination of light citrus and fleshy fruits intermixed with a light caramel malt. Taste is moderately bitter decently balanced with a malty fleshy fruit sweetness. Light bitterness and sweetness linger in finish. Solid IPA.
