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.

I think this is a solid IPA. I'm a bit biased because it is singled hopped with centennial and that is one of my top favs. Easy finish and good level of resin with a nice touch of malt backbone.

Not a terrible beer but not that great either. There are way too many IPAs that I'd rather drink. There is a very solid malt backbone which I liked but the single dimension hop profile just fell flat on me and did not do any justice to the IBU's present in this brew.

Not bad, but tastes like a home brewed beer. Definitely not an 87 out of 100. I'd say 70/100
