After the death of his wife, Henry Jackson Smart was left to raise his 6 young children alone. His courage, love, selflessness and dedication inspired his daughter, Sonora Smart Dodd, to organize the first Fatherís Day on June 19th, 1910. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Fatherís Day. President Nixon, in 1972, established it as a permanent day of national observance.

Dadís Little Helper Black IPA is deep mahogany in color with roasted malt and hop aromas and dense creamy head. It enters the palate with intense hop flavor and coats the tongue with a rich maltiness from the Rogue Farms Risk Malt.

AshtonMcCobb (5381) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance -opaque black with a big fluffy fawn head. Nose - elusive as hiding behind the head. Pine and chocolate. Taste - bitter chocolate, orange and citrus pith. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - enjoyable but leaning more towards stout than ipa and it should be in the middle.

Mep3222 (1285) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Floral hoppy aroma with Caramelized malt. Taste is malty with a very dry bitter hoppy finish. Piney and resinous, but not as resinous as some, but even more dry than most. Flavors are pretty solid but almost had a dry your tongue out hoppy finish (more than most hoppy beers) which detracts for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bnoel09 (582) - Elk Grove, California, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Poured from the bomber into a shaker. Dark brown/black pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with some floral hops. Flavor starts with some dark roasted notes and coffee and then the hoppy notes come out - floral and grassy hop notes as well as some peppery notes and light earthiness. Medium bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel and a long finish. Overall pretty good and very drinkable, just not as hopped up as some of the other Black IPAís out there.
