Enjoyed in the bottle in a pint glass. Didnít blow me a way but then again I have no remaining palate for hops (fits with their scorched earth agenda for beer). Tasted quite nicely and need to try again.

22oz bomber from Archer Liquors in Chicago. Pours a light amber orange. Big head. Spectacular hops aroma. Intense, but surprisingly easy drinking hops taste that really hits your tongue hard in the aftertaste. A real pleasure for a hop head. Three Floyds is my favorite brewery, and this one may have de-throned Dreadnaught as my favorite 3F beer. My beer friends described it to me as an "assault on your tongue". Not sure Iíd really call it quite that - I think Moylanís Double IPA is the closest one Iíve had to that description.

22oz bottle pours a hazy orange with one ring of white head. Nice nose, hops, tropical fruits, sweet. Flavor is pineapple, sweet malts, tropical fruit candies, lemon rind. Full bodied, bitter finish.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2010
golden with large white head. nose of citrus and herbal hops. moderate bitterness for style. firm bitterness before a healthy amount of herbal and citrus hops with an amazingly dry and alcohol free finish for a 9% abv. a perfectly fermented ale that has a great recipe to support. a paradigm of the style

AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Bottle. Aroma is strong with cascade hops, almost no malts. Notes of citrus and pine come out. Palate is crisp and clean with a strong bitter bite. Flavor is very, very hoppy and good. Great beer.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours a deep, turbid sunset orange with a fuzzy, creamy white head. Tons of white, snowflake sediment. Aroma of caramel, honey, lavender, grapefruit, sweet malts, toasted almonds, and hints of toffee, cream, and tangerine. Medium bodied with a crisp, light, yet bitterly hoppy and juicy palate. Finishes with a nice bittersweet warming in the chest. Insane double IPA.

jredmond (7334) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle split with Pat and Vin, courtesy of Pat. Pours a bright hazy orange body with nice white soapy lacing - a ton of sediment. Aroma is great fresh hop. Mouthfeel is incredible, bready with diverse hop notes - citrus, pine, grass, resin, herbal. GREAT IPA.

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Iíve had this on two seperate occasions at the brewpub. The first time was last year and it stole the day from Dreadnaught, but this time Dreadnaugt was better. Yellowish hazy gold in the glass with a soft pure white head. Tons of citrus and floral hops in the nose. The malt character is somewhat lighter than Dreadnaught, making it less sweet, but allowing a more complex hop flavor through.

fonefan (43245) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2010

Bottle 22fl.oz.

Unclear medium orange color with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, orange, peach, flowers. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, hoppy, dry. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20101024]

TAR (2651) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Blonde-hued apricot. Thin but clingy tiny-bubbled white head. Nauseatingly hoppy nose of pineapple, cantaloupe, peach, canned mandarin oranges, and low-grade orange juice. Potent scents of alcohol. Distant whiff of aspirin, mango, pine needles and dry crackery malt. Snug and creamy caress of carbonation. Initial wave of succulent, citrus-laden hops gives way to an assortment of palate-clenching pine needles and softer dabs of honey-drizzled orange pith. While the hop flavors are relatively bright and explosive, they are largely negated by the intensely resinous and borderline-chalky hop bitterness. Becomes lightly medicinal as the sharp, poorly cloaked alcohol links up with the residual sugars and increasingly brash chalky/resinous hop character. Hop character is also quite sour and biting, resembling uric acid, to a degree. Finishes deceptively dry due to the relentless pine needle barrage, with lingering notes of vanilla cake and resin. Not quite as sloppy as the vast majority of DIPAs out there, but still rather caustic, dirty and one-dimensional, with that said.
