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.

1stRndDraught (10) - Birmingham, USA - APR 30, 2013
One of my favorite IPAs brewed in Alabama. By far my favorite from Straight to Ale. The beer is exquisite, but the can is what, frankly, caught my attention. Present, yet not overpowering, citrus flavor with a rather clean finish. Great for people that like lighter ales, but not the punchy fruit flavor that usually comes with them.

Sticky caramel candy, sugar and bitter hos. Sweeter than expected but the hops evens this out.. On tap at some bar in Memphis.

wombat23 (886) - Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Draft at the source. Copper color with a white head. Fine-grained lacing. Aroma is citrus and malt with faint pine and floral elements. Taste has a little more pine and bitterness than the aroma indicates, but it also has a nice malty base. Good.

Tejas (992) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 11, 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. Im guessing Centennial hops?? 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.
