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.

"compared to Hopslam? Not even close. Maybe this had some age on it. It tasted like it did, which tempered down the flavor and aromatic qualities of the hops, and left the bitterness and malty backbone, leaving it as a pretty good but way overrated strong ale. disappointed in this one a bit. 9/10-had a fresh one, which backed up the assumption of age on the first sample. very very tasty and aromatic hop bomb of a beer. Grapefruit rind and quite floral. not really any balance, but still super super nice. comparable to the excellent Maharaja. mid-hi 3 old, 4.5+ fresh. they need to date these!"

Wow, amazing double ipa. Murky orange pour with crazy lacing. Aroma is intense and wonderful...strong mango, pineapple, citrus, and a little pine. Taste is a fruit salad with a little bit of caramel. Sweet and bitter. Piney finish. Really amazingly drinkable for the abv. Amazing stuff.

650ml bottle. Pours a clear golden shade with plenty of white foam. Hops give off citrussy grapefruit notes in the aroma with pine following up. Taste is nicely balanced between sweet caramel malt and bitter hop flavours. Clean, classy and drinkable, but not enough to really grab my full attention.

jesperhammer (3456) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
19-SEP-2014, draft @Mikkeller & Friends. Very hazy, dark orange with lasting, lacing, off-white head. Aroma is perfumed hops. Caramel, over ripe fruit. Taste the same with some earth and fruit. Sweet, malty, hoppy, bitter. Not all up where I hoped it would be but still a very nice drink.

Aroma is tropical fruits, citrus, pine, and slight hint of berries. Flavor is a fruit explosion with a pine finish. Finishes slightly bitter but both malt and bitter even out at the end. Amazing! Best double IPA!

Bottle. Nice amber body with white head. I think the bottle is a little bit to old so there is missing a lot of the aroma. Otherwise a perfect beer wonderful balanced between hops and malts. You don’t notice the malts and the Ibus. Even its more than 3 months old a great one.

Japalo (1421) - DENMARK - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle@home celebrating a new weekend. Amber haze. One finger foam. Dusty passionsfruit pine notes. Intens resinous piny taste. Sweet well hiding in a moderate bitterness. Very dry bitter finish. Heavy body. Probably the most expensive brew bought so far 225 Danish kroner. It's good but that good!!!

So big and so good. Tons of complex hop aroma from pepper to mango. Flavor is an intense resin awesomeness. Really did well on carbonation and malt backbone with slight alcohol warmth makes this a perfect brew

tmrmwel (1231) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours an ever so slightly hazy golden with a big off white head. Aroma is tremendous, with sweet hoppy apricots and soft tropical mango, as well as elderflowers, lychee and bittering orange peel. Medium to full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet hops with apricots and mango, bitter orange peel and pine, as well as a nice malt back with toffee. Bitter finish with grapefruit and resin. A fantastic brew! Subtle and easy drinking, yet hoppy and aggressive. Probably the best DIPA ever, and definitely worth the hype!

PeteyPie (5) - - SEP 6, 2014 does not count
Poured from a 22 oz bomber from FFF brewpub, bottled about 9 days ago, served in a spiegelau IPA glass Aroma: HUGE nose of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. Appearance: Pours a very pretty orange-copper with good clarity, nice fluffy white head that dies down and leaves lacing along the sides of the glass. Great-looking beer. Taste: Follows the nose, massive waves of tropical fruit, peach, and a little citrus hop with a little malt backbone. A little bitterness left behind on the finish. Palate: Pleasant average carbonation, body is medium but so, so drinkable for such a big IPA. Overall: One of my favorite beers, period. I’m a sucker for tropical hop profiles and this I just love. It’s unbelievably drinkable for such a big beer. It’d be wonderful to have everyday access.
