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.

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.

From 16oz can pours a gold amber with a small white foamy head, so looks good. Aroma is piney and bready with hints of citrus. Lightly carbonated with a heavier body than its appearance. Certainly has bitter hops, the first thing you taste but overall this is more a malty IPA. Toasty malts and piney hops actually balance quite well but leave a bitter aftertaste. Something about this doesn’t cut it, it may taste to strong for me but probably a good pickup for those that like intensely bitter beer.

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.

ben4321 (3569) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Location: Can at Monkey Bar in Philthy, 11/16/13

Aroma: The nose is grassy and hoppy, some pine, earth, citrus, and a hint of butter
Appearance: It pours a heavy golden-amber color with an off-white head
Flavor: The taste is pretty nice and hoppy, but then that buttery malt flavor kicks in
Palate: The body is medium, it has a pretty nice feel, and drinks really easily
Overall Impression: I thought this was a good attempt at an IPA with some nice hoppy components to it, but there’s a bit of a buttery malt flavor that just really hampers the quality of the beer overall.

Aroma is bready malts, citrus and earthy notes. The flavor is citrus, fruit, bread, earthy notes, berries, mild sweetness and a tart/bitter finish.

On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Dark red pour with nice head. More bitter than fresh or citrusy. Not my style of IPA.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2012
On tap at Tokyo Pub. Pours cloudy orangish copper with off white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, floral hops, and some malt. Flavors of light tropical fruit, and citrus hops, but is really dominated by malt base. Really lacking hop profile. Something seemed off and did not seem fresh.

arkurzynski (1402) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2012
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.

screigh (423) - 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.

16 oz can - Nice floral hops aroma. A bit too grainy on the tongue for me. It seems a little malt-heavy. OK beer. I was recommended this one by a Chicago beer-lover, so I was expecting to like it a bit more than I did.
