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.

Not to in depth I know . . . but not real sure what's going on with these Bama ipa's. Very malty for my taste. The can is this beer's best feature.

The flavor has resinous pine, bitterness up front, a touch of grapefruit, substantial malt backbone. Lots of resin with a decent bitterness on the back end.

The beer is a fine traditional American IPA.
