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.

3.6/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

16 oz can, 6% abv. Slightly hazy, copper color. White head that holds for a long time, and leaves some nice lace.

Citrusy, herbal hop aroma. Some stone fruit as well. Nice toasty, caramel malt in the nose as well.

Toasty malt up front followed by some resiny, herbal and citrusy hops. Bitterness is solid but not overwhelming. Some nice fruity favors linger. More complex than I thought. Dries at the finish with a dextrose sort of feel.

Medium body with great soft carbonation. No warmth here. A very easy to drink ipa, with a bonus for the tall boy can!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half's worth of head that settles down into a thin cap. Leaves some very impressive lacing all the way down the glass

S: Quite malty with some dank hops that smell like straight up weed. Some citrus and grassy earthiness also comes through

T: Starts off very well balanced. Malts and hops combine for a slightly sweet almost candy-like hoppiness that provides more of the straight up weed and then some sweet citrus and earthiness more into the finish. Definitely on the bitter side after the malt sweetness wears off

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A tad too watery

O: Pleasantly surprised by this IPA. Definitely balanced, but still provides a nice hoppy presence after the sweetness of the malts have faded off a bit. Really easy to drink as well. Recommended if you enjoy balanced IPAs or IPAs with a pronounced weed aroma and flavor

Came in a pint can, poured a nice and light color with solid head. (Also, the can was full up to top on opening)

Smells very flowery with a bit of a hint of pine.

Taste is very hoppy off the bat, balanced out with a nice maltiness and citrus note in the aftertaste. Smooth, easy to drink.

A very good, if unspectacular IPA, with an added bump for the very convenient pint can,

16 fl oz. can (1 pint) with no apparent freshness or canned on date present. Awesome can art; I've been eyeing this beer for a while now, and glad I finally picked up the four pack. I bought a couple Threadless t-shirts for my ex-girlfriend a few years back, not that that has any relevance to what's going on here. Anyway, my first beer from Chicago's Finch's Beer Co.

Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours two fingers of fluffy creamy off-white head which recedes to one finger with decent retention fairly quick. Body is a murky bright orange color with some fine light & dark sediment and some bubbles lazily crawling up the sides of the glass. Thin strands of lace.

S - Smell is your standard IPA: herbal pine resin, grapefruit, citrus, orange, pineapple, cat piss acidity, and some biscuit malt presence to round things off. A fairly simple aroma, but it hits it's mark.

T - Taste follows the aroma: juicy citrus fruits, grapefruit, oranges, herbal pine needles, earthy hop bitterness, and perhaps the slightest hint of spicy rye in the finish. Balanced nicely with the bready biscuit malts.

M - Feel is crisp, clean, and fruity, with some resinous hop bitterness lingering on the palate.

Overall, a nicely tailored beer, and a nice introduction to this brewery if I do say so. A fairly simple and standard IPA, but excellently balanced and tasty, and that suits me just fine. A beer I would happily drink again, and it's a shame that I slept on trying this for as long as I did. Nothing groundbreaking here, but well worth trying.

This Chicago brew comes in a nice pint can, and poured a cloudy amber with a solid sudsy head and thin lace.

Nose says floral with pine and citrus notes. Not bad.

Taste is sharply hoppy, no surprise, with a pine and grapefruit tones, and a substantial malt profile. Threadless is a solid, if unremarkable IPA that remains drinkable and session-worthy, but it's not one I'd revisit anytime soon.
