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.

fraternie (947) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Promising aroma contains strong citrus/apple notes and caramel undertones, but the malt fails to deliver on all of it. Some citrus and caramel, a touch of sourness, and a lot of hops in the malt. Overly grassy. The beer is saved by its superb balance and soft mouthfeel.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Pours a light golden color that seems quite light for the style. The aroma is a little different, some malt and some hops, but perhaps some grassy aromas. Flavor has a nice bitter element, but without being overly intense. Certainly a nice balance of malt and hops. Nice caramel, citrus and pine elements. Decent, but not outstanding.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Delightfully hoppy and very refreshing. Unfortunate straw color, but otherwise a solid IPA. Strong woody hop flavor with solid bitterness.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2003
Yellowish color. Citrusy nose, slightly woody hops. Body is smooth and very bitter. Long, typical IPA, maybe not the freshest sample, but still nothing to write home about.

JPDIPSO (5133) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Hazy light golden color with a light cream colored head. Interesting aromas. Mix of caramel coated lemon blossoms. To be honest not the best aromas, but very intriguing aromas that make you inhale and think. This one gets points (like T IJ) for some interestng aromas. Aroma becomes more like lemon drops as the more volatile aromas are driven off. Lemon drops with a sprig of evergreen mix in the mouth. Lace all the way down the glass. While IMO not a great IPA, it is one of those beers that makes you sit back, quaff and analyze. Late caramel flavors load the mouth and sweep away the hops demons swimming in this one.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Nice session beer. Good example of the style. Crisp, clean, refreshing. Not as bitter as I would have expected from a beer bottle inquiring who my father was?

ElGaucho (2328) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2003
Draught (S.F. Toronado pub). Sweet aroma with heavy, floral hops. Small, white head with fair lacing. Clear, flat, gold body. Good mix between hoppiness and sweetness. I've had some brews that are similarly hoppy, but dry that leave an unsatisfying finish. This is different and quite good.

OldGrowth (3002) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2003
From the bottle. Great nose! Great mix. Citrus and pine. Golden color makes it look so plain. Hits your tongue with a bittersweet punch. Bitter, crisp finish. Much better than the draft version I had at Jacks 10/25/02. I'll take some of these anytime.

Do you know how mint chocolate chip ice cream tastes better when it's green? Well, this IPA would taste better if it was darker! The color is very light for an IPA and this takes away from the beer. As the bottle says "Who's Your Daddy?" - well not this IPA! There are others I like better even though the bottle is pretty cool.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Citrusy, floral, almost perfumed aroma with hints of spice and pine. Somewhat pale golden yellow color, nice creamy head. Flavor is certainly hoppy from start to finish, with fruity, quenching citric flavors combining with a bit of bready, faintly caramelized malt, then turning juicy and hoppy for the finish. Astoundingly easy to quaff, this bottle's almost gone and I just started it... Aftertaste has just a hint of sweet grain amidst the hop. Wow! This is good because it's not a typical over-the-top West Coaster, it's mellow and creamy. Good stuff, definitely.
