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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can purchased at Pinocchio?s Beer Garden in Media, Pennsylvania. The pour is a very hazy copper golden with a one inch off white head. The aroma is pine and bitter grapefruit citrus peel. Some cereal grain in the nose as well. The taste is caramel, cereal grain up front followed by the the pine and finishes with the sharp bitter grapefruit peel. The palate is medium bodied, low carbonation level and unfiltered mouth feel. Slightly sweet finish which was a bit disjointed. There was no date information on the can, and I expect this was a bit on the old side. Overall, decent IPA.

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.

Pours golden/lt amber with a medium white head. Aroma has some mango and caramely sweetness. Flavor follows suit...too malty for my taste in IPAs. Mouthfeel is medium/full with an earthy caramel/bitter finish.

It poured a hazy amber color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, toast and some florals. The taste was of medium bitters and a touch of sweetness while the citrus shined through. Very well done.

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.

7/26/2013: Finch’s Threadless IPA - Hmmm... Smells a bit sour, but the flavor is okay; moderate-high bitterness with a floral perfume hop flavor along with some melon. Overall, this IPA is good, but not great, in my opinion.
Draught (sample) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #174 for this beer.

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
