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.

Beer stats:
Malteries Franco-Belges, Carawheat, Weyermann Melanoidin, Wyermann Carafe Special II & Rogue Micro Barley Farm Risk Malts; Newport, Chinook & Rogue Micro Hopyard Rebel Hops, Free Range Coastal Water.

About a 1 inch thick head of very fine and creamy light brown bubbles. Roasted grains, chocolate malts, light piney hops and some black cherry. Color is a dark brown. Rich flavor with lots of roasted grains, piney hops, light chocolate malts and a bit of burnt bitter coffee. Dryness from the hops and grains make the mouthfeel kind of chalky. Finishes roasty and bitter. An ok black IPA.

PhillyCraft (3308) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2012
On tap at pour house, pours a dark purple black, with small head and lacing. Aromas are verry hoppy, with mostly pine and grapefruit. Taste is the same but bitter and has a smokey coffee flavor. Pretty good black ipa all around but too roasty and too much bite in finish.

rougeau13 (2016) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Dark brown with a big beige head. Decent lacing. Aroma chocolate and roasted malts with a weak citrus hop aroma. The taste is malty and chocolatey with a relatively mild bitterness. Medium bodied and quite dry. Good beer, but doesnít excel for the style.

Meh... I was a little disappointed in this beer. Aroma was weak for he style. Roasted malt and just a hint of grapefruit hops. Pour was as he style says- black with his a few off white blotches for a head. Taste was thin and watery- some bitterness in the roasted malt and a stale hoppy aftertaste. Not their best offering. Light carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On taP, poured a dark brown to black with a light brown head. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, must, earth with a hint of orange/fruit. Flavor was quite earthy with some roast, hints of fruit and sweetness, long lingering finish. Fairly easy to drink.
