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.

Tap. Pours the typical orange-tinted gold, with a small amount of very dense, white head that dissipates slowly. Nose is toast, pine, and grapefruit. Taste is much the same, caramel, toffee, bready malt sweetness with a grapefruit and resinous hop note that is not as extremely biter as some of the other IPAs out there. Finishes dry and lightly bitter. The muted nature of the flavors and ABV tend to put this in a session IPA category.

CacheManyHose (311) - HONG KONG - MAR 25, 2015
Clear maple-brown without much carbonation. Thin white fizzy head. Smells of musty hop, dusty attic, potpourri/preserved flowers, bit of spiced malt. Tastes of musty floral hop. Dry finish with faint pepper/spice. Body is smooth, bitter, lightly slick and peppery. Not terribly interesting but a nice hoppy floral malty aroma.

HKdIPA (366) - HONG KONG - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle from QClub at home. Clear honey amber pour. Aroma is hops and apple-orange juice, some pine. Taste is similar but more pine resin than apple. Quite bready and malty too. Solid IPA and would get again for HKD28.

eggraid101 (30) - Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz can. Thick white head straw colored body. Not a strong aroma. Apricot, some pine and some grapefruit dominate. Not a heavy body makes this a good warm weather ipa. Nice for a spring afternoon ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
