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.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Standard 22oz Rogue single. Wow, so this is a strong beer, right? If youíre looking for your taste buds to tingle, look no further. This beer isnít for chumps, so put on your seatbelt. They cranked up the volume on the taste profile to "11". Another winner from rogue.

Draught at the Fraunces Tavern, New York, NY. Dark reddish brown colour with small creamy off-white head. Mild roasted malt aroma with some notes of hoppy dryness and wood. Flavour is dry wood, liquorice and hoppy bitterness. Quite balanced. More grainy and roasted than bitter hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
