COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Strange metallic taste. Not much of an aroma. Metal taste lasts into the palette ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong hoppy aroma. Looks like a beer should. Has a taste that you know you are drinking a heavy alcoholic beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really liked this one. Pours a clear amber with a thin head. The aroma is loaded with pine and citrus. The flavor is very bitter with the pine and citrus. There is a bit of grapefruit too. The finish is dry an peppery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Freshcraft. Gold and clear with a lasting white head. Aroma of pine, citrus hops, bread/toast and sweet caramel malts. Similar flavor, with medium bitterness and an average body. Pretty standard.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed June 17, 2013. The appearance has a golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head slowly dies. There is minimal light lacing that clings to the glass. The smell has some strong citrus and piney hops up front. The malts start to displace the hops ever so slightly as it warms a bit. The taste is bittersweet all the way through even though the malts start to come out a bit morein the taste. There is a sticky sweet aftertaste with a dry bitter finish. On the palate, the body sits about a light to medium, and comes across fairly sessionable. Carbonation is felt appropriately for the style and for me. Overall, this is a very good AIPA that I would definitely have again.

Cerveja IPA bem leve no sabor, com um final amargo. Muito boa para acompanhar um queijinho no fim da tarde.

Bomber via beer world. Again, I find the description lacking. While the lacing is spectacularly complex, the piney hops show thru in a waffling manner. Body is weak and a tad watery. Nite to self, a busy bottle is over compensating for a lack of vision....probably due to encounters being too nosy.

Beer poors brilliant light copper with a white head that fades after a minute. Aroma has strong Carmel notes with floral and citrus hop balancing with the Carmel aromas. Flavor has a firm bitterness that lingers for some time. Malt sweetness is definately in the flavor but masked by the firm hop bitterness bringing through prominent citrus characteristics. Mouthfeel borders on sticky, but falls below that threshold slightly. Medium/light carbonation. Overall a nice beer. More Carmel/crystal malt then I prefer, but balance doesn’t leave it a closing beer. Probably not something I would order back to back, but good.
