COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

furthur (371) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Growler, opaque brown beer, huge, light almond colored head, awesome lacing. Aroma dark fruit, herbal hops (spruce, mint and, fresh grass), and toasted barley. Taste is coffee and milk, citrus rind, a little spruce resin and mint. Palate is light, finish is hops bitter, carbonation moderate. This is a decent black IPA, Iíd drink it any time, but itís not the worlds greatest black IPA.

GreatDane1632 (825) - USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bomber poured into a glass -- Pours dark deep brown with lasting tan pillowy head. Aroma is a hint of roast and citrus/grassy hops. Flavor starts with sweet dark crystal malts and is interrupted almost immediately with heavy handed bitterness and finishes with roast malts. A little out of balance. Overall a good experience, but wouldnít order more than a pint.

UncleKorm (1037) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bomber bottle poured a deep dark brown hue w/ a ridiculously enormous lasting tan head and lacing. Mild roast aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are burnt toast. Medium bodied and over carbonated. Poured down the drain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty good showing in the black IPA category. Pours a deep, dark, cola black, with middling head. Aroma of coffee, roasted grain, dark fruit. Flavor is marked by coffee, chocolate, licorice, hop pine, some fruit. Pretty tasty combination.

rondphoto (2702) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 14, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear very dark brown/black color, heavy, sudsy rich tan head, full curtain of lace. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste is rich toasted malt. It moves through the palate fluidly, adding light coffee, then finishing with hard straight hops that linger for a long time. An exceptional brew at 7% abv,

unclemike (2491) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Poured a dark brown body with a quick fading average sized light beige bubbly head. Aroma is hoppy with dark malts and a hint of coffee, light citrus notes. Flaovr is a great combination of malts and hops with citrusy yellow grapefruit and earth. Medium to fuller bodied with stronger fizzy carbonation and a slight lingering bitterness. Pretty good all around and surprizingly good

2015-02-28. Very dark brown body with a small beige head. 3+ Aroma of sweet caramel, cocoa and leafy green hops. Flavour is similar, leafy green hops over sweetish caramel and cocoa base malt. Smooth average body. Decent but doesnít knock my socks off. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

650 ml bottle from LCBO Hawkesbury (Ontario) on November 28, 2014. Dark brown, medium head. Chocolate and green hop aroma, spicy notes. The taste is about the same, almost like root beer with hops, light bitterness. Interesting but too unusual for itís style!

hman43 (520) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2015
It pours black with a brown head that leaves plenty of lacing. It has a sweet smell combined with roasted aromas. There may be a bit of nuttiness to the aroma combined with spicy pop almost like raisins. There is a combination of citrus with roasted malts that combines to make a fairly bitter finish. It has lively carbonation as well.
