My god. I've had Dreadnaught a few times from a bomber (which is awesome in it's own right), but experiencing it fresh at the Brewery on tap is a completely different, and amazing experience. The perfect Imperial IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with thick white head. Tons of lacing. Big time aroma of citrus hops and some pine notes. Taste definitely follows the nose. Citrus flavors of mango and grapefruit with some piney floral notes. Very well balanced double IPA. Excellent sweet malt backbone. A nice clean bitterness throughout without the bite at the end. Hides the high ABV very well. Very smooth medium bodied IPA. One of the best for sure.

Fresh on tap. This brewery releases so many great IPAs that the once peerless Dreadnaught, for me, has fallen down the list. All that said, the quality and approach hasn't diminished and it may still be one of the best of the classic new American double IPAs.

22 oz bottle..Hazy deep amber pour,big lacing white head.Aroma of pine needles and grapefruits. Some caramel malt upfront before the hop resin assault . Pine,mango,peach and grapefruit all in there.Lighter bodied than most double Ipas. Carbonation was low, finish was a long lingering dry bitter hoppiness.

poured from a 22oz bomber into a snifter glass, has peachy/citrus like aroma with a caramel malt background, the taste is similar to the aroma as it has strong characteristics of peach/mango with s bit of citrus, along with the slight caramel malt background, then finishes clean with a slight bitter aftertaste. overall a damn solid Imperial IPA

Amazing smell is sweet and fruity. Golden color tastes of stone fruits and pinapple that goes down smooth with a pine kick on the back. Truly a great Dipa.

Poured from a bomber. Aroma is peach, citrus, orange, tropical fruit, and salty caramel. Flavors are peach, tangerine, citrus, orange, tropical fruit, pine, and salty caramel. Giant hoppy beer, big fan of this one though. Love all the fruity flavors you get from it. Another amazing hoppy beer from 3 Floyd’s!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle via trade. had many times before, but finally rating. Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Nose full of grapefruit, orange, lemon, mandarin, tangelos, kumquats, all sorts of citrus. Some piney character in the aroma too. Taste is initially a fruit explosion followed quickly by a lightly pithy and firm bitterness. Quickly the hop flavor comes back through in the flavor and then the beer finishes with a light note of alcohol warming, almost in the taste, but more in the chest. moderate carbonation, thin malt character, but just enough for the hops. dry finish. Wowsers. With all the new hops that people are using all the time, it’s refreshing to have such a well crafted IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Aromas of grass, grapefruit, and mango come off the initial pour in strength, with a secondary aroma of milky caramel (kinda like a caramel candy) and some candy fruit notes. Later on into the first pour, some peach and strawberry notes poke through. It pours a clear sparkling honey-gold color which does turn a bit hazy near the end of the bottle (I wasn’t expecting any unfermented proteins, so I was a bit aggressive with the pour), this is topped by a huge, fluffy, slightly off-white head that’s perfectly content to linger for quite a while; although, when it does finally reduce, it reduces to a very fine film atop the beer, but, surprisingly, it leaves an abundant lacing. Tons of bitter in this one with a substantial sweetness too. I felt like there was even a trace amount of sour, but it was overwhelmed by the sweet and bitter. The full-bodied beer starts off with a mellow floral bitterness up front with some bittersweet grapefruit. The soft carbonation keeps this pretty smooth and creamy going down, with a touch of stickiness on the lips. At the swallow, a sweet caramel and candy fruit make an appearance, but this is quickly overrun by a strong grapefruit astringency. This is a punch in the face bitter, so beware! This bitterness sticks around for the very dry finish; although it does mellow quite a bit - either that, or your palate just becomes adjusted to it. The aftertaste has some resin to it, and it has an almost burnt bread quality to go along with the grapefruit. As the mouth coat mellows out a bit, some oranges & cream starts to come out of the beer a bit more, as well as some mild lemon about mid-drink.
