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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2003
UPDATED: APR 27, 2004 Bottle. Dark orange color with thin white head. Nice lacing. Very hoppy and floral aroma. Not as much malt as I'd like.

PieTaster (32) - Humpton, California, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Fruit in nose, very light bodied, finishes dry. Not of one of my favorite IPA's. Need's more mouthfeel.

raymow (815) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Looks, smells, and tastes like an IPA. Nice color with a thin white head and thick lacing. Extremely hopped which starts out good but ends a bit too dry.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 24, 2003
Enticing IPA aroma that I love so much, nice white head, kind of thin golden color, piney flavor, pretty well hopped, mildly fruity, good amount of carbonation but kind of a weak mouthfeel. Who the hell thinks up these names? I mean seriously.

jsquire (3464) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Clear orange out of the bottle with a thin white head and a sweet orange/pine tree nose. My initial reaction was orange flavored Jolly Ranchers. Medium bodied with an orange rind and pine resin finish. Very good with my pizza.

Ernest (6217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is clear dark yellow. Aroma lightly malty (cookie), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2003
A wonderful floral hop aroma escapes from my tulip glass as I pour this beer. It produces an off-white head that is fairly resilient. It is a nice copper color, and is very clear with a nice bead of carbonation cascading from the bottom of the glass. There is citrus and fruit in the aroma. This is quite a dry beer. It has a big hop flavor and finishes with a nice hop bite. The hops dominate in this beer, nary a malt note to be found, save for a bit of toasty grain in the finish (but this is very subtle). This is a one dimensional hop bomb, could use a bit more malt expression.

auto (163) - California, USA - NOV 1, 2003
dark yellow colour, medium sized white head, bitter but smooth taste (if that makes sense).

r464 (1926) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Light to medium amber color with a citrusy, hoppy flavor. The alcohol is well masked. The pine like hops and strength can be overwhelming.
