16 oz. can. Never heard of this brewery but I like pint cans.
Pours a deep gold with light orange hues. Big tight white head. Pillowy with super lacing.
Aroma starts with citrus hops, a very mild earthy pine with some faint sweet malt. Not much else. Not a strong smell, but what's there is good.
Flavor starts really watery, then has a bit of basic sweet malt, mild bitterness with sharp pine and a bit of juicy citrus. The bitterness is not strong, but lasts long. The other flavors of grass. Pune and tropical fruits are also solid but short. Interesting and unique, but I like it. The malt isn't very prominent and the beer stays watery in terms of body and malt flavor. There's a hint of toasted grains and sweet malts.
Mouthfeel is overly light and watery. Very drinkable. Smooth well carbonated.
Overall this beer is just really unique. So here we go;
Pros : good bitterness that lasts long. Nice secondary hop flavors of earth, pine, light tropical fruits. Super drinkable.
Cons : very watery. All back of the tongue flavor. Not much on aroma, but what's there is good.
This would be a great intro ipa for someone getting into ipas, as it is bitter but drinkable and flavorful, plus for them the can is split able. For me, I'll have another. I think I like this as a summer ipa

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.
