Finch’s Hardcore Chimera

Yesterday was a rough day at work. I put in a fifteen and a half hour shift. I walked in the house and went right to bed. The other half was trying to get me to eat, but all I wanted to do was sleep. I got to leave today after only eleven hours, so I’ll be able to get a decent amount of sleep tonight. Anyways, here’s another backlogged review.


ABV: 9%

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Finch’s Beer Co. is in the business of brewing great, craft beers locally in Chicago, Illinois. We use the best ingredients and take special care to make sure every batch is the best we can brew.”

Random: We bought the cat a new rainbow catnip toy to play with. He was very excited.

This beer poured with a two finger, ecru colored head that dissipated really slowly and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy, bright orange color with low carbonation visible. The nose was strong with pine and fresh grapefruit and grass. The taste was more towards the citrus side with lots of grapefruit and lemon along with grass. There wasn’t much pine to this one. The body was medium thick with generous carbonation. The alcohol did make an appearance at the end of the sip. The finish was long with a lot of grapefruit pith. This brew was $2.29 for a 16 ounce can. This means that it would be $9.16 for a four-pack, which is a bit pricy, but not crazy. I think that price is well worth the quality of the beer. This was a really nice beer that I enjoyed. Grab a can when you’re in the mood for a good DIPA!
