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.

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.

ICEatALAMO (1329) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2014
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

phaleslu (9848) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2014
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.

Itzjerm (2579) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2014
One of the best pepper IPAs Ive had to date. Sweetness and pleasant burn come through with no grassy taste or aroma. Pepper taste is very light almost not present. There is a burn in the throat mostly thin on the tongue then a bit on the lips. Taste of vanilla and creme come through with yeast which helps balance pepper punch. Nice head that fades. You guys need to bottle this Id pick it up tomorrow.
Earlier Rating: 9/16/2011 Total Score: 4.6
Update: March 2012 Some from a fresh Keg... incredible head... not to much, but keeps giving. Sweet bitterness... goes deep into throat, enjoyable. Bitter right on though. Happy this is made in town, Ive found a beer of choice for local. Rating increase .4 points more aroma and hops. Original: Sept 2011: I really like this. And its from huntsville! And applies to the space program. Citrus floral smell very strong... nice just to sniff. Not bitter just hoppy. Wonderful! Nice job guys... after huntsville beer week, this one is on top for me. Slight watery flavor builds over time. Still a nice beer. June 2012. After trying many IPAs the aroma is really perfect. Overall this is moving up to an 18. Its one of the best IPAs out there as I like a citrus IPA. Taste is up to a 9. Yes its that good guys. PLEASE PLEASE PLEase Dont start to cut corners for profit. This is what you need to sell right now! Dont change
