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.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Pours hazy yellow-orange with a pillowy medium off-white head. Very citrusy, spritzy, almost sweet aroma with minimal pine. Flavor is likewise citrusy and fruity, somewhat sweet, with a creamy but thin body. Pine pokes through the citrus on occasion. Malt is somewhat bready/toasty. Much better than their lame APA.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Orange in color. Great hop aroma, citrusy. Taste is similar to the smell. Good overall balance. Has enough hops in flavor and bitterness but not over the top. Highly recommended to try.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Nice cloudy light golden color. Faint hop, citrus aroma. Big bold hop flavor makes it very quaffable. Finish is clean and dry. Not bold but a satisfying IPA.

willblake (2654) - 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.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2004
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.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
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 (9713) - 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.
