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.

Had on tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival - Decent brewpub IPA. Light copper appearance, decent off-white head. Fresh, light, sprucey aroma. Has the expected citrusy hops with a slight malty back end. Mouthfeel decent, not stinging.

IndianaRed (3430) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Bottle Pours a slightly hazy light orange amber with very nice fluffy bright white head. Delicious sweet citrusy, orange and grapefruit hoppy aroma. Flavor was more of the bitterness than I expected. Fairly sharp and woody hop character with the pale fairly sweet grains a bit pushed down. Late grassy pulpy aftertaste with plain bitterness after that. Still a ince example of the style. Glad I picked this up.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a large frothy white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma and flavour of fresh hops and grapefruit. Very pleasant, dry bitter finish. This is a delicious IPA -- Speakeasy are two for two with me. I look forward to getting this again.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2005
light golden colour with a heavy bubble presence. Strong foamy off white head! A full boquet of aroma hits the nose with hops and a barnyard zest. The flavour is sweet and bitter simulataneously, and the hops deliver as promised and leave oh so smoothly. This is a great Brew!

fly (1452) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Tight head floating above very paie IPA. Surprisingly watery texture with a one, two count dead on hop finish. Odd how it balances itself out, but it works. As much as I like it due to the awesome hopping, I could take some more malt, but since there’s Double Daddy .....

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Now that smells like an IPA.LIght range colour. Thin head. Flavourful beverage. Not overpowering hops. Moderate malt. Makes you want another bottle.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Malty nose. Nice clear golden color with a nice white head and some lacing. Some citrus and floral bitterness a lot of malt. Not much of an IPA. But good.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Very high on the hops. Pours a nice amber color, medium off white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, with lovely orange hints, and what seems like a bit of eucalyptus (sp?). Flavor is very hoppy, with a dry finish. Very good offering.
