Speakeasy Baby Daddy Session IPA

Two session IPAs, two days in a row. It seems like every brewery you look at is putting out their own interpretation of the style. Although I love IPAs, I really wish more breweries would put out styles that every other brewery isn’t doing. When we went on vacation to Maine, it was really refreshing to find a brewery that specialized in gruits, because it’s rare to see them. I guess if they become the popular style, everyone will start doing them. Now that I’ve complained enough, let’s see if this beer stands out from the pack.


ABV: 4.6%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The first edition of our Session 47 Series, Baby Daddy IPA is sunny straw in color and loaded with hops. The aroma and flavor yield citrus and tropical notes: grapefruit, melon, lime, passion fruit, and a touch of spice will delight your palate. Baby Daddy IPA has a full balanced body, with a crisp finish and low bitterness. It’s an ideal choice for long afternoons with friends.”

Random: I have another few session IPAs to get through and then I’m going to be avoiding them for awhile.

This beer poured with a two finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy lemon-yellow color with high carbonation visible. On the nose, I picked up grass and not much else, as the nose was very mild. The taste was also subtle. I picked up lemon rind, grass clippings and old grapefruit rind. It had a very watery body with high carbonation. The finish was quick with the same grass clippings. The price on this one was $1.75 a can ($.15 per ounce). This beer was drinkable, but nothing I would buy again.
