BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Finch Beer Co.
Illinois, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Smell is gapefruit, swet malt, sweet lemon and pine

Taste is bitter orange, grapefruit, caramel malt, lemon and a sweet citrus back end!

Mouthefeel Starts light and builds to medium, really nice....

This one poured a cloudy dark golden with a fluffy ivory head that laced quite well. Smell was fresh citus hop (mostly lemon with grapefruit close behind) and a bit of slightly catty pine. Taste was pretty much in line with smell. However there was a grappy linger just like concorde grape skins. Carb is pretty creamy, but final mouth feel is a bit puckering (those grape skins I mentioned). All in all it still works though. I'm a bit surprised by the 81 score, because I see no real flaws and think this is a well done brew. I'd have no problem what-so-ever recommending it.

This beer smells like fresh hops or stepping inside a brewery. That to me is worth a ton of points alone. Then again the taste is as worthy. Balanced yet the fresh beer smell for me makes this beer more than a one night stand. I personally think this deserves a higher rating...hopefully you agree.

This 16 oz. can poured into a snifter.

It ours a feint yellow with low retention. It smells hoppy. Big malt taste and then a very piney hop finish with a boozy after taste that creeps up your throat. I like this beer and the fact that it comes from a can is great for pool season.

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.
