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.

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

Lukaduke (2793) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 1, 2013
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...

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy bronzed orange color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some messy lacing. The smell had a sharp sweet to bitter citrus blend coursing it’s way between bittersweet pine. A nice caramel malt backbone graces underneath. The taste was balanced between the sweet citrus and bitter pine and levels out to the malt backbone nicely. A nice balanced citrus sweetness to pine aftertaste leads to a semi-dry citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a wonderful sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Bitterness seemed balanced as well to have a nice harshness against my tongue. Overall, this was a really nice fairly crushable AIPA that I would love to have again and possibly even just drink from the can on a hot Summer’s day.

Tap at The Map Room. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, frothy and bubbly cream colored head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is medium malt (toast, cereal), heavy hops (earthy, herbal, pine, citrus), and average esters (fruity) with notes of pineapple and alcohol. Flavor is heavy hops with supporting malt and light alcohol. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation with a dry finish.

Pours an hazy amber reddish color. Nose is citrus and pine, with a tangerine and peach nose predominating, quite pleasant nose. Taste is all citrus with very heavy bitterness at first than settles down quite delightfully. Finish is moderately long with some sweetness. Nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

Fresh can into a nonic pint. Pours deep gold with a slight white head, moderate lacing. Big grass and citrus aroma, pine, pineapple. Taste is grassy, piney, fruity, assertively bitter with a hit of sticky resin sweetness before finishing dry. My kind of IPA!
