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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Slightly hazy, banana-gold color, slim, diminshing white head above. Aromasoft, citrus and pine, somewhat soapy, pineapple and peach, rather quiet, but still possesses a certain character. fruity flavor is tops on the palate, and hop bitterness plays for a bit, but it’s a softshoe affair here, very mild, very minor. Body is medium, and the finish is unimpressive, slips away assuredly, leaves nothing memorable behind. Citric zest continues to briefly bite with every new sip, but it’s not enough to make a real impression. Very drinkable, to be sure, but lacking in any extra anything that would make this a stand-out IPA. Not bad, of course, but nothing much.

Light yellow orange color, faint malt hop aroma , smooth hop citrus taste, no malt to be found, bitterness finishes the taste. Somewhat thin nice but wouldnt make my top10 IPA’s list

guzzler67 (1550) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Hazy, orange appearance with a small head. Hoppy, resinous aroma with some citrus. Taste was on the thin side, light-to-medium bodied, lively carbonation. Flavor was citrusy (lemon) and well hopped. Dry, short lived finish.

Odeed (1796) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 26, 2004
golden and murkey with an average head that vanished soon after.aroma of citurs,vanilla,and hops.flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma.reminds me of the frozen orange bars with the vanilla filling.

Bottle. Damn, very citrus aroma. Sweet nose with lots of orange notes and some grapefruit notes sprinkled here and there. Smells yummy. Mildly hazy blonde/honey color with a small qucikly dissipating white head. Start is rather sweet turning very orangey citrusy to finish. Hops are more subdued than expected. Slightly thin, and very orangey IPA. I kinda like this guy. Label says "Who’s your daddy?! 003". Any insight on this?

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Hazy gold color, medium white head. Big hops in the aroma, spicy, citrusy, and a little piney. Light malt as well. Flavor is nicely balanced, some earthy malt followed by a good dose of hops, but not as much as the aroma would lead you to believe. Medium bodied, smoother, short finish. Very good.

Dorwart (2424) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Decent head which reduces to a thin foam with some impresive lacing. Big juicy hops aroma with spruce, flowers and a nice bready malt. Color is a medium golden orange. Wow interesting flavor. Major flavor of honey roasted peanuts. I am salivating just thinking about them. YUMMY. Very nutty. Not as much hops presence but a decent malt backbone to balance it out. Finish has a nice bitterness but not a puckering bitterness. Very soft in the mouth. A good, mellow IPA.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2004
UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 Light in color. Pure, oily, raw and invigorating hop aroma calms my senses, allows me to relax and interpret what I am exactly smelling. Dripping honey covered pine needles. Orange. Other fruits. The hops are undeniably huge and fairly shocking but the sweet, fruity and sugary malt presence is what makes this a pretty delicious India Pale Ale.
