Big Daddy IPABig Daddy IPA

Brewed by:
Speakeasy Ales & Lagers
California, United States

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.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a clear deep gold color one finger of white soapy head, thick lacing too.
S - Some dank pine and big floral hops, a touch of citrus, fresh baked bread.
T - Taste is more on the malt side, with a big fresh bread taste, then you get more of the hops as it fades out, nice floral notes, a little resinous.
M - Well balanced in feel between bitterness and malt.
O - This is just a good American IPA.
