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.

nearbeer (4608) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Pint on tap. Clear copper with a film of lasting bubbles. Pleasant but slightly subdued nose of orange toffee, grapefruit and resin. Taste has grapefruit, earthy orange, toasted grain and nut, toffee and a nice drying finish of resin. Light-medium body finishes well to the dry side, has medium carbonation and is one of the few well-balanced American IPAs.

Tejas (969) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2016
Draught > Proud Larrys. Wow, what a surprise this is. I ordered it taking a flyer and was hooked from the first sip. Super flowery and hoppy crisp w/ a decent malty backbone. This is a great IPA! Nice job straight to ale.

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.

rondphoto (3541) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 16, 2016
on tap @ Sassy Bass / Gulf Shores AL --- Clear medium/dark amber color, off-white head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is crisp, carbonated caramel malt that sweeps through the swallow to a finish that begins with light citrus; then the citrus gradually becomes more hoppy as it floats through a balanced citrus and malt finish. Full-bodied, but light in the stomach. A solid highly recommended brew.
