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.

On tap at Bangers... Murky honey gold, bright light tope head... Light hops with a musky grass note... The taste is all hops, loses malt but a bit of lemon... Much better than their pale offering, but not much of place on a crowded chicago beer scene

Total Wine, Fairfax 4-pack: Pours amber color with off-white head. Aroma is grapefuit, pine, and fairly hefty malt. Taste is pretty bitter, but is also combined with a caramely sweetness. Ain’t the greatest IPA. I would have prefered it to be less malty.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Draft at Haymarket. Pours a pretty deep, almost copper with a white head. Nose is kind of bland. Some generic citrusy hops and caramel come through. I still don’t understand why brewers feel the need to throw a big caramel component into an IPA. Anyway, pretty generic. On taste, it is quite bitter and pretty fruity. More of the caramel notes. I’m just not into this...

This was courtesy of Doran in Missouri. Thanks. Poured amber with a big white head and excellent lacing. Nose of caramel malts and citrus. Medium body. The flavor is both floral and citrus and there is a solid bitterness that continues on into to the finish. Well crafted IPA and quite enjoyable.

Cybercat (3377) - Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Pours a nice clear amber with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Hoppy aroma has an undertone of grapefruit and a hint of yeast. Flavor has hoppy, grassy, citrus and yeast notes, a little bitterness and a touch of sweetness. Texture has firm, smooth body, and fizz is not strong but persists. Definitely tweet.

Finchs threadless ipa. On tap at Sheffields... Pours a semi- transparent amber reddish brown hue and topped with a creamy barely off-white head... Aroma ... Flavors have a balancing degree of citrusy piney hop focus with what seems to be a crystal malt backend. A bit more focused on more of the malty front when comsumed after a couple of daisy cutters, mind whoever is reading. Medium to somewhat full bodied with an adequate level of carbonation. It’s gowin on me as I have it. Citrus becomes more apparent and pretty drinkable. 7/4/7/3/14

Headbanger (3325) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2012
Sample at Binny’s Downers Grove 4/4/12-Pours an amber body with a small head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more malt. This medium to full bodied brew is pretty well balanced and goes down easy.

PhillyCraft (3314) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2012
On tap at capones, pours cloudy bright orange with medium off white head. Aromas and taste of bitter hops, pine, strong grains, caramel, light malts. Finish had a strong citrus hop bite. Good ipa to pair with food especially spicy stuff due to the bitterness.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Serving: 16 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a muddy orange with a small, off white head. Lots of yeasties floating around in this brew. There are light notes of orange and grapefruit. The flavor seems to lack a nice hop punch. Some earthy malts with that orange and grapefruit making an encore. Medium bodied. Rather average in the IPA world.
