Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Sean 9689. Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Extremely peachy, citrusy and piney aroma. Medium body, sweet fruit at first but quickly the massive hops take over leaving a massive and dry bitterness. Lots of citrusy hops. Very delicious. 241010

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden with orange hue. White head, light carbonation and floaties. Sweet caramel malts bread/biscuit with floral and grapefruit hops. Not super bitter, but solid. Residual grapefruit. Lighter in body than Dreadnaught and less impactful. Decent though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce thanks to Thomas. Maybe not fresh, but still pours a great foamy head. Orange body. Lots of grapefruit, pine and tangerine/citrus. Really well done even with a little age on it. None of that super bitter/alcohol Double IPA taste many have. Would love to try fresh as well.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours yellow amber with a small white head. Not huge hops on the nose. Herbal and grassy, but not overly bitter. A bit of honey sweetness with some nice maltiness. A bit of citrus, with the same herbal/grassy hops. A bit sweet, but really a weird balance between hops and malt. Not liking this one.

Golden with good, creamy, white head / Nose of orange, cream, grapefruit, and cut pine / Medium body, lightly sweet, a touch watery but creamy with soft carbonation, moderately biting hops, big fruit, and good finish / Flavors of orange, grapefruit, cream, cut pine, bubblegum, and resin / Very fine, but if memory serves, not quite at the level of Dreadnaught.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle courtesy of pittsburghkid. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of malt, caramel, and orange. The flavor begins with malt and caramel which is followed by a solid dose of crisp hops bitterness. The bitterness lingers briefly after the swallow. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium-full bodied. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light fuzzy orange with an apricot aroma and healthy head. The IPA hoppiness is hidden behind a wall of hazy fruitiness. Odd combination of flavors.

26th September 2010. Bottle shared by the uber generous Urbain at the Struise Brewing School. Cheers Urbs!
Hazy gold beer, good white head. A few small floaty bits! Palate is crisp and a little dry. Slightly creamy malt but also dry. Fresh orange fronts a some grapefruit bitterness. A pleasant carbonated bite in the finish. Lingering bitter aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is initially a hazy orange color that calms down to a clear golden orange color with a thin white head.
S: The tropical fruit notes from the hops are apparent up front. Mangos, pineapple, tangerines, and bitter grapefruit. Some floral and honey aromas, too.
T: The fruity character of the nose is present on the palate as well, but not quite as intensely so. Much more piney bitterness with some grapefruit rind and hints of sweet mango and pineapple. A soft malt character that provides a bit of breadiness.
M: The body is medium with a very lively carbonation and a lingering bitterness.
D: Itís been awhile since Iíve had Dreadnaught, so I canít quite compare it to that "other" DIPA from Three Floyds. Itís a nice beer that I enjoyed the bottle of to myself.
