Container Brewing Forty Footer – American IPA at 6.2% ABV (C$3.82 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 2-Dec-2021, reviewed 18-Dec-2021)
Appearance: slightly hazy medium gold with some particulate, two fat fingers of loose white head, good retention, minimal soapy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: pine, caramel, citrus. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
The label says batch information on the bottom of the can, but no such luck, so no idea as to age (but the particulate is suggestive). It calls itself a West Coast IPA, and I guess I can live with that categorization. It could stand to be danker, though. Or brighter. Or, really, just about anything more, except for the bitterness, which is adequate. A bit forgettable. (14/20)
This will be my 5,162nd unique Untappd check-in.
