COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After the death of his wife, Henry Jackson Smart was left to raise his 6 young children alone. His courage, love, selflessness and dedication inspired his daughter, Sonora Smart Dodd, to organize the first Father’s Day on June 19th, 1910. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. President Nixon, in 1972, established it as a permanent day of national observance.

Dad’s Little Helper Black IPA is deep mahogany in color with roasted malt and hop aromas and dense creamy head. It enters the palate with intense hop flavor and coats the tongue with a rich maltiness from the Rogue Farms Risk Malt.

chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2016
22 oz bottle served in a lager glass. An all around excellent Blac IPA, with fine looks including an ample and durable head, an inviting aroma, exceptional mix of dark roasted grain and hop flavors, and a soft and smooth but lively mouthfeel. Great balance and blending of the hop and malt components - a trait that is all too rare in this style. Overall: I certainly seem to like Rogue beers, on average, more than the typical beer geek. Two reasons, at least, I would guess. One is that Rogue suffers from some of the negative attitude cast towards some large, established craft brewers. Second, it seems I am a big fan of their proprietary yeast.

Bottle. Brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is lots of chocolate, roasty with some fruit. Flavour is nicely bitter, roasty cocoa and coffee with some subtle fruit. Not the richest black IPA, but pretty tasty and balanced.

AshtonMcCobb (6859) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance -opaque black with a big fluffy fawn head. Nose - elusive as hiding behind the head. Pine and chocolate. Taste - bitter chocolate, orange and citrus pith. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - enjoyable but leaning more towards stout than ipa and it should be in the middle.

Bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours opaque dark brown with a thick beige head. Aromas of pine, citrus, light roast. Taste is chocolate and orange. Slightly thin finish, which is pretty par for the course with Rogue.
