Left Hand Brewing "400 Pound Monkey"
IPA (ABV 7%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a hazy medium yellow with some dark orange highlights and had an average sized (1-2 fingers) creamy white head that lasted a nice while leaving behind enough residue to produce some really excellent lacing.

The aroma was very light of grassy hops, a light grain malt and a sweet horse blanket scented yeast with just a hint of citrus (grapefruit).

The taste started out with a mild sweet acidic malty flavor then turned a tad sour with the end having a nice medium bitter hoppy flavor with a touch of citrus. The flavor of the brew was very appealing but did not last nearly long enough.

Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and although it was dry in texture it has a very nice creaminess about it with a soft carbonation, just enough to let you know of its presence.

Overall a well balanced IPA that was not overpowered by hops and was very easy to drink.
