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 Fatherís Day on June 19th, 1910. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Fatherís Day. President Nixon, in 1972, established it as a permanent day of national observance.

Dadís 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.

Poured from the bomber into a shaker. Dark brown/black pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with some floral hops. Flavor starts with some dark roasted notes and coffee and then the hoppy notes come out - floral and grassy hop notes as well as some peppery notes and light earthiness. Medium bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel and a long finish. Overall pretty good and very drinkable, just not as hopped up as some of the other Black IPAís out there.

Bottle. Rather bitter sharp woody bite and fair op flavors. A better ofering from a mediocre brewery

22 oz bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, some general bittering hops but not much in the way of flavor, some earthy notes, not bad, but not worth repeating.

SeniorZozo (1634) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 28, 2015
nice foamy tan head but no real lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, grain and hints of hops. Taste toasty malts, slightly bitterness from hops. Very enjoyable, and quite drinkable, really liked this one.

kramer (6574) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Tap. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black body under a one finger tight bubbled beige head that left some spotty lace. The nose is super citrusy with a really nice chocolate and toasty maltiness and a little coffee. The flavor is bright and hoppy, but tempered by the chocolate and roast with a lingering coffee and licorice laced finish. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. This is by far one of the best Rogue beers that Iíve ever had. Good stuff.

furthur (1110) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Growler, opaque brown beer, huge, light almond colored head, awesome lacing. Aroma dark fruit, herbal hops (spruce, mint and, fresh grass), and toasted barley. Taste is coffee and milk, citrus rind, a little spruce resin and mint. Palate is light, finish is hops bitter, carbonation moderate. This is a decent black IPA, Iíd drink it any time, but itís not the worlds greatest black IPA.
