Left Hand 400 Pound Monkey IPA Beer Review

400LbMonkey
400 Pound Monkey – English-Style IPA
Left Hand Brewing Co. – Longmont, CO
ABV: 6.8%


CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: 6
Went down fairly quick for an IPA. Had plenty of time to finish, swallow, regroup, and blurt a rating.
How Much: 4
I paid $11.95 for a 6-pack out here in Boston. Little pricey to not really deliver on flavor.
Uhhh…Taste: 5
Expected a lot more after I emptied my wallet for this brew. It seems like Left Hand relied too much on the hops to carry this beer, and didn’t supply a strong malt backbone. The finish leaves a weird flavor, although it’s not awful, it doesn’t leave me begging for another sip, thank God I chugged it..
Gettability: 7
Left hand distributes to about 30 states and this is a year round offering from the boys over in Longmont, CO.

OVERALL: 5.3
