COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hophead’s dream beer. This Imperial India Pale Ale has an opening salvo of mango, peach and citrus hop aromas that sit atop a pronounced caramel malt backbone. Although Dreadnaught is a strong and intensely hoppy ale, its complex flavors is both smooth and memorable. 9.5% ABV, 100 IBUs.

Sdaniel90 (781) - Mexico City, MEXICO - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle, 65cl. Aged for over a year. Sparkling amber with a creamy offwhite head. Unbelievable aromas of fruity hops, caramel, resin, alcohol. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Extremely smooth and creamy. Medium sweet with medium bitterness. Deep fiery roasted character into an exquisite and complex alcohol finish. Absolutely delicious. Expected it to be more bitter though.

Vignale (3080) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2016
Fat på CBC-16. En stor tung och söt DIPA med mycket honung, torkad frukt, söt nektar, karamell. Jag saknar en humlekick i hela smakregistret. Mer stong ale än DIPA och sötman blir väl stor. Men med det sagt ändå riktigt gott, massiv kropp fina söta fruktiga nyanser. Ändå en liten besvikelse.
