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.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2007 Original Rate, 5/28/05. Dark yellow color with a dishsoap-like foamy head. Smells a little like dust. Watery body and dominantly grainy taste with only a brief hit of hops at the start. 5-2-6-3-12 Re-Rate. Iím glad Skyview brought another bottle of this, as I obviously didnít care for it last time around. Floral hop and citrus aroma. Much more hoppy flavor with a lot of citrus. Slightly herbal finish. Much better.

Golden, low head. Clean grapefruity hop aroma. Quite thin flavour of lemon-peels and grapefruit. Thin body.

Itís a very drinkable beer, but just canít stand up to the other IPAs Iíve had. I was fairly disappointed with it. It would make a really enjoyable APA. Maybe itís just mislabeled.

Big Daddy is a clean drinking IPA.. if you can even call it that. Although I dropped the bottle when I opened it, the head still came out nice and creamy. The color is a little light for my tastes. The hops aroma is alright, but I have definitely smelled better. This would be a good choice if you want to drink a lot of beers in a single sitting. Otherwise I would recommend picking up something else.

Pours hazy golden with a tiny white head. Big citrus aroma. Taste is all hops, citrusy and light. One of the lighter IPAs I have sampled. Good hop taste, not much malt to back it up. Very light and crisp. Decent.

euserphriendly (167) - Holland, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2005
good hop smell right from the beginning. The pour was a light amber, a little light for a traditional IPA. The body was just a little on the light side, but the overall blend was pretty good. Nice hop finish. Not bad.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2005
Pours yellow with a slight orange hue. Thin white head that disspiates. Aroma is mostly piney, woodsy, with some citrus. Tastes like a typical West Coast IPA, which is not a bad thing. A little watery mouthfeel. This is pretty light and drinkable for an IPA. Not bad.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2005
Pale, translucent orange in color. Thin sheet of white for a head. Aroma is sweet, with honey, lemon grass and something starchy coming through. Nice crisp taste. Grassy, honey, herbal and pine flavors manifest. Well balanced, especially with its discernable caramel malts coupled with the dry hop assault. Finish is sweet, bitter and crisp. Also gave me quite the nice hoppy burp. A predictable IPA, but a solid rendition. Thanks to tpkenned for the bottle!

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 21, 2005
Paired with a veritable feast of Indian food that I prepared. Nose is sweet and piney. Well toasted malt, really great resiny hops. Brown Sugar/cotton candy hop finish. Reminds me quite a bit of Southern Tier. Nice stuff!

(bottle) Pale gold with white head. Pine hops aroma. Flavor is piney hops, some hints of citrus. Medium bodied.
