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.

Dark amber with off-white head. Aroma of hops, pine, grapefruit. Hoppy taste with citrus notes. This is a solid I.P.A, nothing special but it’s a textbook example of the style

bartlebier (2769) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2015
12oz bottle, Tdrinks Tilburg (bottled 05/2015...). Thin cracker beigeyellow pour. Aroma seems to have survived the trip well enough: dry lime leaf, thai basil, orange blossom, Earl Grey. A distinct cracker dry palate is suffused with Centennial-like astringent hops, green tea leaf dominates, along with more lime and kafir leaf. Unelegant lingering dry finish.

Another good example of fancy looking but mediocre quality indeed. Very dry and bland, tasteless for senior IPA drinker, there's nothing impressive. Flavor wise, I don't see any reason to call it big daddy!

tomekk1978 (1000) - Ząbki, POLAND - SEP 27, 2015
Aromat: po otwarciu z butelki czuć było cytrusy, jednak po przelaniu do szkła zostaje z niego niewiele. Czuć bardziej utlenienie (miód) oraz herbatnikowy słód i trochę alkoholu.

Wygląd: barwa złota, klarowna. Piana biała, lekko zabarwiona, umiarkowanej wielkości i podobnie trwała. Ładnie oblepia szkło.

Smak: słodycz, lekka kwaskowość, nieco zboża czy ciastek, ale dosyć pusto. Są ewidentne nuty utlenienia i alkoholu. Goryczka w okolicach średniej, lekko drażniąca, ale krótka, przyjemna. Średnia pełnia, umiarkowane do niskiego wysycenie i słodowy finisz z nutą alkoholową.

Mocno przeciętne, bowiem niestety nieświeże. Kolejne z USA, które nie spełnia oczekiwań.

feliponk (15) - CHILE - SEP 23, 2015
Big dando de san francisco, estilo ipa que a mi parecer se aleja de las clásicas irás californianas. Muy poco aromática pero con un buen amargor al final. Recomendable pero no indispensable para los amantes de la ipa.

Abijen (2123) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2015
Goud helder bier met een kleine witte schuim kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, mout. Smaakt ook zo met een goede bitterheid.

mgajdaczewa (1038) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 18, 2015
Piwo się utleniło, z aromatu chmielowego nie zostało nic, ale wyczuć można cudowne ciasteczko z miodem, genialny, choć pewnie niezamierzony no i niestylowy aromat! W smaku ciasteczko też obecne, gładkie mocno goryczkowe piwo, któremu brakuje soczystości, goryczka nieco za długa, ale warstwa słodowa rekompensuje braki. Pijalne mimo długiej goryczki.

Douberd (3475) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2015
(Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a teku, ABV 6.5%. Bottled on 12 May ’15, amazing how fast they find their way to Europe lately. Clear orange colour on the body, with a tall and quite thick head sitting on top, very good retention. Aroma of fresh grass, biscuits, hops. Taste is quite bitter from the beginning, building up. Hops, fresh grass, some citrus, orange peel, tangerine. Long aftertaste. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Pretty good.

Benzai (11071) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color with a slight orange hue, medium sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, quite some piney hops, hops, firm bitterness. An IPA quite far reaching into the bitter spectrum sort of speak rather than being fruity and fruity hopped. As I like bitter beers I quite enjoyed this one but I can see why people might dislike it. Solid IPA though.

Backlog. Draft->4oz taster. Clear gold with small white head. Citrus hops over caramel malt, moderately bittersweet. Just a blah IPA.
