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.

willblake (2645) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Draught at Jack’s sucker beer bar, S.F., CA. 05.23.04 Didn’t labor over this beer, just a quick sniff and sip. Reminds of DFH 60 Min. Pine sap hoppiness; quick, but chewy finish...lots of body but not lingering. Another California IPA. Good, and more balanced than many; still hop heavy, even for an IPA.

Hops is all that’s needed to describe this one. This golden colored IPA is all hops and citrus in the nose. Immediatly upon hitting the tongue the hops go to work. Not too overpowering and fairly light bodied. Good stuff from start to finish, and long afterwards.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Nothing special. Pours amber with foamy white head. Hoppy aroma, grapefruit. Clean mouthfeel but thin. Flavor was robust hops. Not a bad beer but nothing I’d look for again.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Light hazy gold, lasting creamy white head. Nice west coast IPA aroma of bitter grapefruit, sticky sweet pine, apricot, and dough. Bitter blasts of grapefruit rind, orange peel, resiny, hints of caramel and toffee. Not completely balanced by the malt, but who cares...it’s an IPA right? This is for hopheads at heart. Medium bodied, bitter dry finish. Good stuff!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2004
Tap, Toronado, San Francisco. A typical USIPA, perhaps not as intense. Lemon and lychee. Nice, soft, refreshing, bitter session ale. Not really assertive or anything, juslt light and well balanced.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Hazy amber in color with a small white head. Hoppy, orange, floral smells. The lable states, ’leaves the scene without a trace’, which it did. I prefer more of a bitter aftertaste. Struck me as having a light body for an IPA.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2004
Pours a pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy. Taste is very hoppy with citrus and grapefruit. Something is missing taste-wise. It needs to be a sweeter and fuller,it's a little too mellow. Mouthfeel is nice with a very dry finish. Not bad at all, but I wouldn’t really rush out to buy it again.

JackLanders (55) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2004
Robust in every way and a very impressive beer all around. Even lousy breweries can make decent IPAs by throwing in enough cascades to keep the hop heads happy, so it's not often that an IPA really jumps out as unique nowadays. But this beer did. The malt flavor was full and complex while balanced perfectly with an array of citrusy and bitter hops falvors. A clean, dry finish with a lingering taste of the grains. A nice looking beer to boot, with a lasting head with fair creaminess and flavor. This is a very good beer, tying with Stone's IPA on flavor while definitely edging it out on the price tag.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Gold color, less yellow than the Untouchable APA. Aromas of hops, slight honey, malt, chardonnay. Very hoppy taste, with maly, citrus, and slight dryness at the finish.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2004
Excellent sticky, sweet hop aroma not sure which variety. Medium bodied, with a rich hop taste and a nice bitter grip. Bitter, dry and sticky with a little pine. Good beer.
