Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

3.11/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a golden orange in color with a tiny bit of transparency, left a tiny off white head at the top with slight lacing around the glass as you drank this brew.

S: Citrus and earthy right off the bat with a nice malt and hop note as well.

T: Well balanced with a good mixture of hops and malts, lots of bitterness though, a weird earthy taste that I was not a fan of.

M: Medium carbonation and with medium body, sligth watery taste on the tail end.

O: Overall not impressed wtih this beer, didnt have a great taste, just very dull, although it was well balanced I have had better Ipa's before.

Serving type: on-tap

4/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a light golden color in a Speigalgau glass with a 4F head. Very nice looking beer.

Aroma: light grapefruit and nutty.

Mouth feel- lightly carbonated.

Taste: grapefruit and nutty- the aroma transitions well to the taste- not always the case with IPAs and other craft beers.

Finish: mild hoppiness.

Overall: very well crafted IPA. It's an easier drinking IPA at 6% ABV, but there is a lot of character to this beer. It's my first Finch beer. I will look for other beers brewed by Finch.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured chilled in sampling glasses

A: inert, amber; very thin head; little lacing
S: sweet, but slight aroma
T: balanced, soft finish; hop-forward, but with a nice combo of sweet and bitter; citrus a major component in the vibrant hops; sweetness of malt comes through, although it is not specifically identifiable (overwhelmed by hops); very drinkable overall
M: decent

Very likable beer, worth getting again

Im really starting to enjoy beers in cans.
A-Looks great, I like an unfiltered beer with little tasty goodies floating around in it. Nice creamy head, beautiful deep golden color.
S-I absolutely love the smell. There is just something about a well balanced IPA that just does it for me. I get a huge wiff of malt, and then the hops slap you. Its quite nice.
T-Mmmm and then you taste it. My first reaction was wow, this is malty! A nice change from all the hop-overkill IPAs Ive had recently. I havent had a IPA like this in awhile. Its really great and I dont normally score beers this high. The Columbus hops are earthy and pungent and kinda dank. Maybe a little bit of pine. I dont get citrus, and I like that. The malts they chose compliment the hops and its such a good blend. A bitter, malty treat for sure.
M-This is one really smooth drinking beer. Creamy head and its like silk going down. Some might want a dryer or lighter IPA, but this ones a bit more full bodied, almost chewy. I love it. Its a rare thing for me to score a brew this high.
Overall, this is one killer, delicious beer. If you see it, grab it! You wont be disappointed. Beer in cans is great!
