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!

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.

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...
