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.

Pours light copper. Big white head that sticks around for awhile. Glass covered with nice lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, sweet caramel malts, and alcohol. Taste is the same with a huge sticky, malty backbone and citrusy, medicinal backend.

rondphoto (4352) - 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.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, dark copper color with burnt orange edges and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Good retention with large streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Slightly earthy floral hop aroma with grass and resinous pine followed by subtle citrus and a sweet malt backbone. Hints of grapefruit, orange peel, biscuit, caramel and toffee provide sweetness that counters the dank, sticky hops. Nice balance in the nose but the malt character is a bit stronger than I prefer. Full bodied with a blast of dank, sticky hops providing a decent amount of dry bitterness that lingers over the citrus fruit and sweet malt notes into a dry finish. Fresh juicy hops with earthy grass, bitter pine needle and resinous oils followed by a prominent grapefruit presence before the caramel malt sweetness comes on in the back end. A little bit of bread, biscuit and caramel rounding things out in the finish. Very faint boozy sweetness but the high ABV is well masked. Theres a bit more malt flavor than I prefer, but this is an extremely drinkable beer with good hop flavor.

12 oz can from shrubber85 through phaleslu. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, some oxidation, fruity, hops seem faded, very light bitterness, I wonder how different it is fresh,interesting can.
