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.

Pours a deep mahogany. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, piney hops. Medium bodied, slick mouth feel. Roasty malt flavours turn into a long bitterness. Not bad.

On tap at the Euston tap (Mar í12) and served into a UK half pint glass. Mid black akin to ícolaí in colouration with a thin off-white head that soon thinned to a small puddle in the middle of the glass. Not a big nose to this beer, faint hop smells and a little roasted malt and caramel, a little underwhelming in this aspect! Flavours outweighed the smell and I got pine, more hop than on the nose, roasted malt, a little sugar, raisen and a touch of cocoa. Medium in body with a little soft carbonation about right for the style. Overall an OK beer, entirely drinkable, but not setting ímyí beer world alight!!!

huge roasted notes with only moderate bitterness, but balanced and nice. More stout like than IPA.

22 ounce bottle. Pours an unclear brown with a two inch tan head. Taste is of hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, chocolate and malt. Similar aroma. Has a decent, slightly oily body. The finish is rather dry and a bit bitter. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Not bad.

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is burnt caramel, breast, some hints of roast and coffee. The taste is coffee, roast, and some bitter hops. Not really hoppy enough for a black IPA. This one plays more like an American stout. Itís not bad.

Pint @ Pub at Piperís Creek, $5.00. When I order a beer at bar, no matter how divey, I never expect it to look like muddy pond water. Imagine my surprise when thatís exactly what this brew looked like. Smelled hoppy enough but the body was thin and unsatisfying (something I find often with Rogueís new Risk Malt). Iím not angry, just unimpressed.
