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.

This is a phenomenal beer or maybe just right in my wheelhouse. The hops are huge, packing a tremendous amount of flavor. The malt is tuned to provide maximum depth, reigning in bitterness slightly without competing with hop flavor. Gravity is also tuned to facilitate the most lush expression. There is a lot going on in the finish as well. This is where sappy evergreen goodness says hello while malt sweetness surfaces. This beer is in 4D.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the brewery. The appearance is a cloudy orange amber with a large white head. The aroma is hops and citrus. The taste matches the aroma. An excellent beer.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 I prefer my IPA with a malt backbone and this one delivers. Takes some getting used to at first. Heavy on the malt, almost ESB like in the biscuity, bready side. Very well done. A unique IPA and one which I can’t quite come close to a flavor comparison. Very well done!

Draft at J Clyde, Birmingham AL: Whole orange and cranberry nose. Copper, thin head. Drinks like it smells with a stupid amount of orange peel. Soft, cask-like carbonation, but a little hot. fruity and different. I couldn’t believe this is an IPA. Unique.

My first 'Bama beer; there is hope for GOP country. Nice -- very nice -- malt-forward IPA, as I am partial to. The malt base is sweet, also as I like. Hops come into play flavor-wise, with grapefruit being the most prominent note. Some pine, but it's a minor player. Love the taste overall; love the tag line ("straight to ale"); this is a good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2016 12 oz can, pours copper with a small white head. Slightly oily, thick texture. Nose is pine, hops, very nice! Great example of the style.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 A beautiful, deep bronze/copper color that is crystal clear, with a medium head and full lacing from start to finish. It has a pronounced citrus and pine aroma, and a full flavor with a finish that has medium bitterness.
