Alabama, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.25%

Notes / 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.

They call this grapefruit juice a beer. I had high hopes for this one and was let down. IPA is a hard style for me to like though.

No overwhelming smell, tastes more of a brown ale than an IPA, Taste is ok and color is a copper look to it... not a favorite of mine and wouldn’t get

Initial aroma lacked any great amount of hops. Tasting followed suit, nice malt characteristic however lacking in overall hoppiness. Not a bad ale, although I think this can might have been subject to improper handling. Unsure as to whether I will buy again.
