No lightweight, Big Daddy I.P.A. tips the scales with a huge hop flavor and a dry, clean finish that leaves the scene without a trace.

Bottle. Copper with thin off white head. Aroma of pine hops and some light malt notes. Medium body with moderate pine and grapefruit hop bitterness, a light malt backbone, and a dry finish. A decent west coast IPA.

Of all the IPAs I’ve had, this one is my favorite. It has the beautiful, clean finish with that "made in the basement" murky taste. If you enjoy IPAs, this will be the first one that I recommend. The only reason that I don’t give it the perfect score is that I do not think the perfect IPA is here on earth... yet

Transfer from BA review on 2-15-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden color with a one finger head composed of a billowy white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is a mix of bready and cracker malt aromas with a decent showing of a grapefruit citrus and pine hop aroma. With a nice caramel and tropical fruit sweetness mixed within the aroma is rather inviting overall. Taste – The taste begins with a drier crackery and biscuit taste along with some lighter hop flavors of a more grapefruit nature. As the taste advances it sweetens up a bit with some lighter caramel flavors coming to the tongue and with the more cracker flavor fading a bit. At the same time the hop flavors intensity some with both the grapefruit hop growing stronger as well as some flavor of pine and grassy hop coming to the tongue. In the end, the mix of hop, malt, and sweetness leave a rather crisp and clean hopped flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both were quite nice for the crisp and hopped flavors of the brew, making for a very pleasant drinking IPA. Overall – A rather crisp and clean, overall drier IPA. Overall quite nice.
