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.

3.53/5 rDev -5.1%
12 oz, bottle poured into a pint glass (bottled 4 months ago)
A-Lively bubbles on the pour with about 1 1/2 fingers of foam, dissipating to less than one in the first minute. Nice, golden color with a little haze to it.
S-Malty sweetness with a little aroma of orange peel.
T-Still relatively malty as the nose indicated but better hop presence in the taste. I'm still getting primarily citrus with some spiciness showing up as it warmed. More hop bitterness on the finish.
M-Medium bodied with pleasant carbonation. It lingers slightly on the tongue.
O-The sum is better than its parts on this one. I don't think it offers a lot on the nose and isn't the most powerful or complex tasting IPA on the market. However, I enjoy this beer and would buy it again. Would probably get higher reviews from me if labeled generically as "ale." As an IPA, it's lacking in hop character.
