Notes: 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.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was stiff semi-dark golden color with a sustaining finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a slow pace. Some lace ran here and there gently down the sides of the glass.
The aroma had a nice strong citrusy and piney hop bittersweetness up front and keeping the malts at bay while the beer was consumed.
The flavor was fully bittersweet embracing the blend of the hops to the malts tightly and riding into the aftertaste nicely.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, maybe just a touch under with a presentable crushability about it. Carbonation felt on par with the ABV showing it's due diligence to the beer. Nice crisp bittersweet flowing finish.
Overall, probably one of my favorites by Finch's, one that I like to come back to when they keep this beer flowing where I currently live.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a tulip glass. The appearance is a cloudy dark yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma is tons of hops. the taste is hops and some malt on the back end. Overall, a really strong beer.

Pours a insanely thick head that never recedes and I had to spoon it out. Smell has caramel and malty aromas. Taste is moderately bitter and is malty and carmelly. Goes down quite smooth. Overall it's a decent beer but tastes more like an Oktoberfest than a American IPA.

Tis a malt bomb in a sea of malt bombs. I just dont like this style of IPA, though the bittering hops are nice it doesnt really taste or smell very good.

I was greatly disappointed in this beer in which I found a very malt forward IPA with little or nothing else coming through in my glass. There was nothing from the hops to even give a clue as to what hops were used in this brew. If you like a malt bomb than this beer is from you.

On draft at Nina's Pizza, Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a solid grapefruit aroma and slight grassiness.

The taste offered the same citric hop with a touch of doughiness.

The mouthfeel was clean with a vigorous carbonation.

Overall a tasty and quaffable ale.
