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.

Just okay IPA. Copper colored. Lots of resin and pine in the aroma. Just a little citrus. Body was malty, caramel, and resinous. Pretty nondescript.

Tap at Hop City. Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Flavor citrus and bitter hops with a hint of caramel. Light bodied. Not too shabby.

Slightly hazy copper pour with a big white head. Nice lacing. Sweet citrus aroma with orange, tangerine and pink grapefruit. Flavor is overwhelmingly a mix of orange and grapefruit juice. Sweet, fruity and acidic with a full mouthfeel. Finish is firm bitterness. I would say it’s overly aggressive in most IPAs, but it works great with the sweet fruit and full mouthfeel. Sweetness is not a caramel overdose. It blends in well with the hops. Nice beer. I’d be happy to be able to grab a sixer of this on a regular basis.

Pours a deep vibrant reddish orange with a white lacing. The aroma is lavendar, orange, citrus and resin.

Can. Pours a copper color with white head. Grassy, hoppy, piney aromas. Resiny, piney, ganja, hoppy flavors. Medium bodied, high bitterness. Pretty nice IPA.

Gription79 (2379) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Poured from a can, big thanks to Bryan. The hops have fafed in the aroma and it lets the caramel malts shine a bit bright for me. The malts are dominating the flavor, there is some citrus, and floral hop notes. Not the freshest example.

See with strong resins mixed with hops and some bitterness. Tastes of maple syrup, which is fine by me.

Draft at Flying Saucer. The pour is a dark orange with big head. The aroma has some sweetness to it. The taste is a good mix of sweetness and subtle hops. Interesting mix and the taste is unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. can shared by beerpig317 - thanks again, Bunker! Pours a clear orange-gold with an off-white head. Notes of caramel, sugars, toast, straw, leafy and floral hops, peanuts, and tea. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, malty, leafy mouthfeel. Kind of a weak hop character. Leans malty.
