Poured from the can a lightly hazy amber-gold color with two fingers of off-white head. A touch of lacing left behind.
The aroma was heavy with caramel malts and vanilla along with a lighter hit of orange and grassy hops.
Like the aroma, the taste was caramel malts and vanilla upfront with a big bitter hop bite of orange and grass. The heavy bitterness lingers through the finish.
Medium bodied and a tad sticky with a moderate carbonation.
More caramel focused than I would have liked in an IPA. Still, not bad.

Another entry into the already crowded shelves of the Twin Cities: already, there are great breweries like Weyerbacher that one seldom sees anymore...but that's a discussion for another time. Big 16 oz. can.
The pour is orange marmalade & it looks to be roughly the same consistency. Carbonation is tame. Nose goes straight to the oranges, tinged with citrus & a slow dose of malty sweetness. Mostly sugary oranges. Unsure.
Threadless wants to be a balanced IPA (sorry for the cuss word). Bitterness & orangey citrus flash through the palate like a lightning bolt & last approximately the same amount of time. Burly malts take over with a sweeping sweetness that tips quickly into an aspirin, medicinal tint (my wife called it 'metallic'). The aftertaste is unpleasant. And sticks around. Shared the can with my wife: "I won't miss this when it's gone." Eight ounces. Too much.
Not sure where this one went off the rails, but it's weirdly, nastily bitter & simultaneously too malty. I'm not sure I've ever had a beer like it, but I won't miss it when it's gone, either. My first Finch's beer is a disappointment. Not going to finish it.
