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.

WOW. This beer is my new favorite. The aroma is that of mangos and sweet dreams. The taste is perfectly blended and pleasantly fruity; i didnt think i would ever like a fruity beer. The finish is amazing, and only calls for more. Three Floyds should be congradulated for making an amazing brew.

What a good beer!!! Pours a burnt orange/amber color. Nice head and a smoothe drink. Lot of alchohol so drinking a couple will make you forget the $8 price tag. Well worth it though

What a hop nose this beer has. Smells very fresh. Golden Orangish color, very small head. This is one blended beer - great hop blend that isn’t overly bitter. Alcohol flavor very subdued for a 9.5% beer. Outstanding

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Good hop aroma with some malt mixed in. Clear orange amber color with a good head. More malt flavor than I expected but it did have a good hop bitterness. Would like to see more hop flavor in this beer. A good IMP IPA but I do enjoy DFH 90 Min more.

Sammy (9826) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2004
This is a very good best bitter accompanied by some hops. Spruce, a lot of grapefuit, some citrus in a malt base. Orange colour, somewhat cloudy.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Pours a hazy orange body with a small head. Aroma is strong hoppy and fruity with some nut and toffee and a bite of alcohol. Quite thick and sweet. Flavor is sweet at first but turns bitter hoppy in the mouth. Very full-bodied and very hoppy with a dry finish. Undertones of nut and chocolate. Very heavy, thick and cloying and really too much to make it a top 10 beer! Still a good and interesting IPA!

This beer has the perfect amount of hops. No, really. The aroma is beautiful, you can smell exactly what you’re in for. Some other subtle flavors, but the hops is what is most important. Very good. Lasting head. Soft copper color. Dry, sweet andf bitter. Wow.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 Golden/orange/amber coloured. Very strange long and hairy sediment. I have never seen anything like that. Aroma of hops and exotic fruits. Hoppy and sweet flavour with notes of peaches, other fruits and tea. Bitter finish. Thanks Jeppe and Mads.

Ungstrup (30977) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2004
A dark orange beer with no head. The aroma is very hoppy, sweet, and oily. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy and it has a very dry hoppy end. A very nice beer. Thanks to Jeppe (Bierkönig) for sharing this bottle.

2012-05-14, draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 9% ABV, 8-5-8-4-17=42
Hazy light amber color, with giant creamy head. Very nice hop aroma, deep, fruity, lemony, but also a bit cheesy and feety; then followed by oranges and pine needles. The mouthfeel is round and soft, undercarbonated, but the body is not as thick as other IIPAs (fortunately), therefore it’s more drinkable; strong caramel and toffee flavor, with strong hopping; powerful bitterness, yet quite balanced, evident resins, but not lacerating.
I miss some more freshness and fruitiness in the final, but it’s a very well constructed beer.
At 50kr (8.65$) for 20cl, a couple of middle med are buying a Ferrari with this money.

2004-05-14, bottle, 9.5% ABV, 9-4-8-4-16=41
Copper color. Very nice hop aroma, with fruits (oranges, curaçao). Oily and malty, good but less interesting than other examples; strong final, aromatic, less long than others. Thanks Jeppe (Bierkönig) for sharing this bottle.
