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.

Gerbeer (3085) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2016
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Pours a dark copper with moderate head. Aromas of tropical fruit with perfumey hints and caramel malts. Flavors of bready caramel, dried fruit, and bitter grassy resin. Good enough but hoping for more based on ratings.

wombat23 (626) - Texas, USA - APR 25, 2016
Shared 22 oz. bottle. Bottled 4/1/2016. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head that lingers. Aroma of citrus and peach; very fruity. Taste is fruity, with more citrus and peach, and a solid and sweet caramel malt base. The finish is fairly bitter and piney, but not as much as I expected, given the 100 IBUs. Very nice.

Aroma: hoppy with multiple citrus notes but not as floral as some of my favorites; Appearance: golden, clear pour with enormous white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: much sweeter and less hoppy than expected; very fruity and pretty complex; Palate: medium-heavy body with medium, fruity finish; Overall: good but not as good as ratings would indicate.
