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.

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

Elwood (3336) - 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.

Frank (3333) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2012
This is not really hitting the spot for me IPA-wise. It is a nice amber color w/ a decent head but appearance is the only aspect they really got right. The aroma is subdued w/ primarily dark, piny and herbal notes. Flavor is just dominated by an aggressive earthy bitterness which is balanced by a sticky sweetness but lends to a beer that neither has a compelling flavor nor is particularly drinkable. Finch’s does better and there are way better IPA’s locally. This four pack is the last I will probably buy.

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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2011
On tap at Birds and Blokes in Chicago. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweeter citruses with some piney resins and a sweeter caramel backing. Oranges, tangerines, and a bit of a grapefruit. Flavor is similar. Sweet orange and bitter grapefruit pines with some juicy tangerines. Balancing, sweeter caramel malts with a touch of bread. Finishes dry with a moderate bitterness and some juicy citrus resins. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a very tasty IPA. Easy drinking and balanced with lots of citrusy, resiny hops and a solid caramel.
