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.

Fresh bottle. Pours clear orangish/amber with tall white frothy head. Aroma is tropical, citrusy. I like the stone fruit inclusions here. Peach shines through. Taste is great mix of those fruits with some clearly defined hop notes - right amount of bitter, tart, resin - with that caramel malt kicking in at the end. Smooth and almost syrupy. Sweet finish.

On cask at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Can not remember the finer tones, but this one was too much for me. Not the pleasant, refreshing taste I want from an IPA, no matter if it is called Dreadnaught or not.

Pours a slightly murky golden-orange, nice fluffy white head that breaks into fine lacing. Aromas is a hop bouquet. Loaded with pine and resin, citrus peels galore...lemon, orange, grapefruits. And some hints of sugary sweetness. Taste is just as bold. Lots of tang in the way of the lemon/orange peel....moderate bitterness initially, but becomes more pronounced as it warms. Alcohol is almost completely hidden among the sticky sweet malt bill. Solid DIPA, one that keeps me happy as a local!

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy bright golden yellow with thick head that slowly dissipates to lacing. Aroma is pine, full dominating hop bitterness, residual sugary sweetness, and lemon citrus. Flavor is full and bold: Huge hop presence with pine, citrus, and a balance to hide the 10% ABV. Having had this several times, itís always a treat, and words really donít do this beer justice. From notes 11/11/12. On tap at 3 Floyds. Iím astounded at the silky mouthfeel due to small bubbled carbonation. Delicious.

Thanks to schlitzfaced for this beauty. Thatís what brothers are for! pours medium orange with a thick sticy foam. I can easily detect the mango and pear aromas, but there is some caramel poking through. Excellent body. Bitterness cuts through tropical fruit flavors. I can taste just a mild amount of toasted malt too. Finish is dry with plenty of hops left over.
