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.

Pours a light copper, hazy, almost white head, no lacing. Nice citrusy aroma, very prominent. Flavor is a nice balance of caramel maltiness and pungent hoppiness. I get predominantly orange from the hop flavor, fading into grapefruit on the finish. The palate is just right, not too thin, not too thick. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

Draft at Jerry’s. Orange-gold with decent, creamy, white head / Bright nose of orange, spun sugar, cut pine, and resin / Medium body, a touch watery, but otherwise good balance and finish / Flavors of orange, spun sugar, cut pine, and resin (the rare beer that tastes exactly like it smells) / A little more kick to the body, especially more hops, and this will be something.

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.

16oz. can: Pours a clear copperish-orange with a frothy off-white head that is mostly lasting. Citrusy, hoppy aroma & flavor has hints of orange, caramel, and pine. Has a creamy texture with a mild bitterness in the finish. Not over powering with the hops....easy drinking & delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is killer hops, pine and resin, aggressive as you would think from a 90ibu bomb. The color is gorgeous, great looking beer. The extra maltyness gives a slight bready scent that is backed up by the aftertaste. Big hops up front but malts out near the end. 6% abv is prefect, I can comfortably down a few!

On tap with J9 at Prohibition for the Finch release. Pours rich hazy orange with a thick, fluffed out head. Aroma of orange rinds, lemon zest, pine needles, and pineapple slices. Tastes of bittersweet mandarin with some nice bitter dryness in the finish. Palate is full with a supple, clean dryness to it. This is an excellent IPA and a sure bet for fans of the juicy yet bitter/dry variety. Awesome Finch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

New to the state of Maine. Can pours a rich orange copper color with a two plus finger of sticky off white foam. Bright hop aromas of pineapple, light toasted malt and a touch of citrus. The palate follows the nose nicely with a nice creamy round mouthfeel. Soft fruit on the front to mid palate with touches of stonefruit and a grassy bitter finish...
