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. Canít tell if thereís some Summit or Citra in there.. A little oniony and garlicy from the hops.

Draft. Aroma of tangerine, peach and mostly caramel. Soapy lace. Flavors are much to sweet tea, with some burnt toast and marmalade on the finish. Thoroughly drinkable when itís time for a sweeter IPA.

I think I am just not an IPA fan, but as they go this is near the top, not a overpowering hoppy after taste, will revisit in future
