Style: American IPA

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.

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.

Tap at Hop City. Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Flavor citrus and bitter hops with a hint of caramel. Light bodied. Not too shabby.

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.
