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 bought two 16 ounce cans at my local grocery store, though it is not a regularly-stocked brew. It poured very cloudy and had some sediment at the bottom. To me, it tasted quite a bit like Finch's Fascist Pig ale, which I had last fall -- noticeable hop, but balanced by malt. This beer has quite a bit less alcohol than the red ale. I would buy it again, if available, mainly because I like to have 16 ounce IPAs on hand now-and-then.

Finch’s Threadless IPA has a medium, creamy, off-white head, an opaque, gold-orange appearance, some noticeable, clinging bubbles, and lacing, top to bottom. Aroma is of flowers, nectar, hop oil, and white bread. Flavor is of sweet, white bread, not so bitter hop bitterness, sugar, and pine oil. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Finch’s Threadless IPA finishes on the dry side and quite drinkable.
