After drinking a Pacifico, I went on to drinking this Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA.

Overall, I thought it was not bitter. Unfortunately, the taste was also not as happening as most IPAs I've tried.

After finishing this beer, I headed on over to Eureka! with my friends for some fries and more beer (Ballast Point Sculpin IPA and Mission Dark Seas).

Website Information:

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.

Style – American India Pale Ale
ABV – 6.5% ABV
IBU – 60 IBU
Malt – Two Row Pale, Light Munich
Hops – Columbus, Cascade, Centennial
Availability – Year-round
Formats – Draft, 12oz. & 22oz. bottles


American comfort fare: Big Daddy is the perfect complement to buttermilk fried chicken and biscuits, a wood-fired sausage pizza or the classic bacon cheeseburger.

Bring out the spice: For those with a taste for heat look for Big Daddy's dry, hoppy bite to accent the bold flavors of curry dishes, cajun spice or tacos al pastor.

For a fresh catch: To bring out the aromatic citrus and floral notes pair with grilled salmon or fried calamari.
