Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Big Daddy IPA is a hop-head's delight, a generously dry-hopped yet surprisingly drinkable American-style India Pale Ale. Poured into a standard American pint glass, the beer is a golden straw color, with tight carbonation and a slightly off-white head that leaves a lovely lacing. The aroma is floral, fresh grass, pine needles, grapefruit, and a some subtle notes of fresh bread.

Poured into a snifter/tulip/wine glass hybrid from a 12pz can

A - a semi translucent copper bright orange color, one finger off white head and some sugar lacing/legs

S - sugar up front, very nice pine and pineapple, lots of fruity citrus with some rind mixed in there, toasted and sweet grains/malts, biscuit and cracker yeast (the yeast funk is real nice), lots of green and slightly brown earth, very dank and all kinds of sexy funk

T - very hoppy, pine, pineapple, some mango, sweet island flowers, lots of citrus and some rind, the hops is almost effervescent, bright everything, slightly toasted and sweet malts/grains, crisp, very clean and velvety smooth, yeast is like a baking style and really big but in the right way.

M - full bodied, nice balance, great complexity, medium plus acidity, medium carbonation and a hop bomb with a very nice malt backbone finish

D/O - this is a hop bomb! Has a nice sweet malt back on but the hops is punishing (in the best kind of way), so if you aren't a hop head this one is a pass for sure and for anyone that loves hops, this one is a must. With all the hops and underneath flavors rolling around on the tongue, this beast is still refreshing as heck.

Final thoughts - at a nice 8.5% abv and around $11-13 a six-pack, this one is worth a go and may become a stable in your fridge rotation.
