COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Albert. Able. Gordo. Miss Baker. Bonny. Goliath. Between 1948 and 1961 these primate pioneers and others bravely went where no man had ever gone before, paving the way for manned U.S. spaceflight. This hoppy little monkey of a beer is a tribute to those Simian heroes of yesteryear. It has a citrusy, floral hop aroma, a strong malt body and a crisp finish.

A solid IPA with a mild finish that keeps you coming back for more. Can’t tell if there’s some Summit or Citra in there.. A little oniony and garlicy from the hops.

We got this both at the brewery and in 12oz can from Liquor Express. Greta IPA aroma with about a 1 inch head. Looks beautiful and has that classic IPS bitter taste.

12 oz. can pour: Pours a clear deep copperish/amber color with a medium off-white head that is mostly lasting with nice lacing. Has a floral hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and pine. Citrusy, hoppy flavor starts sweet and finishes with a nice refreshing, bitter bite. A well done IPA.

Cool packaging and label. Beer itself is pleasantly hopped. Nice floral nose. Very easy to drink. Alcohol being over 7% was a big surprise to me. I couldn’t taste it at all. I would have guesses 5 to low sixes. Well done and easy to drink. Well see if I can get more.

Can from bleeng. Thanks, Rick!
Pours an average cheddar orange with a nose of grapefruit and pineapple. Flavor is coppery grapefruit, coppery orange rind, and a touch of piney pineapple in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.
