Poured from a 16 OZ can into a tulip glass. The appearance is a cloudy dark yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma is tons of hops. the taste is hops and some malt on the back end. Overall, a really strong beer. Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Draft pours golden orange white off white head fantastic a classic ips that was fantastic to drink TheRussB (20) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2012
6/5/12- Pours a bright copper with an off white 2f head. Strong aromas of resin, floral, pine hops and a light malt sweetness. Upfront it's middling and well carbonated, before revealing harsh bitter and slightly metallic notes of resinous hops mingling with some caramel malts. Lingers a long time with some soapiness that just won't go away. Starts off well with the aroma, but it's a mixed bag after that. Needs more balance, but it's decent overall.

Deep orange, creamy head, citrus hops, good lingering bitterness. handsomejn (77) - Arkansas, USA - APR 14, 2013
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. SSSteve (4006) - - JUN 27, 2012
can. clear orange with a very large, fluffy, cream colored head. floral citrus mix aroma. a pillowy, medium bodied smooth palate. a nice balanced ipa. easy to drink, not too bitter, nice floral accents. the best of the 3 finch’s beers i’ve tried so far.

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!

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.
