A hopheadís 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.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 Summer í05 release. Packed full of hop aroma even before the initial pour. Pours out a nice copper color with a small fading head. The aroma is mostly of floral hops. The taste is nothing short of amazing, this is one great brew. The balance and smoothness of the hops are amazing for such a beer. Great brew, only wish it was easier to find

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2005
2004 22oz. bomber. Amber pour with an orange tint to it. Small head quickly receded to form a thin ring around the top. Brilliant aroma with pine and grapefruit from the hops as well as some sweet peaches. Very smooth mouthfeel with a well-balanced medium malt backbone. Hoppy goodness coated the entire mouth! Flavor followed the aroma with the grapefruit and pine, and I also picked up some white pepper and a little caramel. Long pine forest & pepper finish. Magnifique!

IndianaRed (3743) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Bottle Poures a very hazy light orange amber with a nice thick dense off white head and lots of lacing. Stong hop aroma but balanced well. Citrusy mainly. Flavors were very strong with ops and malts very well matched. Quite sweet and with a very smooth almost creamy texture. A great example of an IIPA. Thanks to MrFacto for sending this my way.

Bottle: Yowsers! The centennial hops crawl up your tongue all the way back to your esophagus. This IPA is impressive with strong orange & grapefruit hops up front. Surprisingly, it is followed by some sweet flavors. Yummy! It pours a large frothy head with good lacing. Hazy and orange/copper in color. Medium body with a thin texture and metallic finish. The nice thing about this is that the flavors last forever with a great balance of acidity, bitterness and sweetness. Indiana_Red - you the man!

Ah, this beer blew me away. Initial thoughts are sweet, smooth, spicy, full of character, exciting, etc... I poured the entire 22 ounces into a giant snifter and sat back and enjoyed. It poured a nice amber colour with a nice creamy head. It didnít last long, but that meant I got to the beer sooner. The aroma is huge. Hoppy and big with a peach candy aroma. There is some alcohol present in the nose as well as the usual pine scent that comes from most IPAís. But that doesnít matter, iIt makes me want to drink the entire thing right away. The flavour is amazing for a hop head. Loads of citrusy bite with enough malt to make me think about it without distracting from the hops. The body is deep and sweet showing off many different characteristics. Great stuff going on here. The only downfall to this beer is the price. I paid almost $9 for my 22 ounce bottle, but I guess it was probably the best beer I have ever tried, so maybe it was worth it.
