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.

I was nervous after the last exprience with this brewery but this one actually works well. A bit of bubblegum hops is always fun. Finish is a little piney and sticky. Some caramel malt and a light chewy grain sweetness working in the background.

Pours a darkish amber color with a small head. Big hoppy citrus nose with some caramel malt. Also getting some pine. Taste has a solid bitterness and a nice taste. Lots of orange citrus. Nice lasting finish that is refreshing. A really good ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Bangers... Murky honey gold, bright light tope head... Light hops with a musky grass note... The taste is all hops, loses malt but a bit of lemon... Much better than their pale offering, but not much of place on a crowded chicago beer scene

On tap at the Beer Bistro. Cloudy copper color with a white head. Grapefruity hop aromas. Grapefruit and tropical fruit hops nicely offset by the caramel malt backbone. A nice IPA...

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Draft at Haymarket. Pours a pretty deep, almost copper with a white head. Nose is kind of bland. Some generic citrusy hops and caramel come through. I still dont understand why brewers feel the need to throw a big caramel component into an IPA. Anyway, pretty generic. On taste, it is quite bitter and pretty fruity. More of the caramel notes. Im just not into this...

Can 500ml. Pours sligthly hazy golden with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, fruits, malt, pine. Taste is of pine, resin, malt, fruits, flowers, bitterness. Some tropical stuff. Harsh bitterness. Palate: ligth-medium body. Overall: Good IPA. Not outstanding, but fair.

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. Its gowin on me as I have it. Citrus becomes more apparent and pretty drinkable. 7/4/7/3/14
