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.

Can:   Orangish straw, hazy, thin to moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Candied pith and peel on the nose, a little more bitter than candied tho.   Whoa, sweet and fruity up front, then bitter, followed by the candied citrus peel.   Really surprised to see how fruity it is right up front, like POW!   Lots of candied citrus peel follows, with a soft bitterness that lingers.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Sweeter than most, not real fresh, but has a decent bitterness with the sweetness.   One of those IPAs you keep sipping to try and figure out, and before you know it, its gone.
