A nice IPA. Dark Yellow beer with a creamy head and good lacing. Taste is the usual IPA flavors of pine and citrus. Bitterness lingers a bit but is ok. I will say that even with the bitterness, this IPA is smoother than a lot I have had. That's ok, overall very nice ale !!

The Big Daddy IPA is a tasty IPA worth an afternoon drink. I purchased this beer in a pounder and decanted it into a pint glass. The beer looks good with a large frothy head and a light yellow color. Lace foam clings to the beer glass after drinking.

The taste is smooth drinkable India Pale Ale. Citrus funk and pine cone are the initial flavor and then a little bitterness lingers. It could almost be a pale ale in appearance and taste, but there is a fair amount of hops in there -- it is just very smooth. Very enjoyable beer.
