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.

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.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled 10/31/2014. Slightly hazy orange with almost three fingers of off-white head. Aromas of citrus, floral, booze, caramel. Tastes of grapefruit citrus, a bit of booze, caramel, pine, resin. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.

Smakt på CBC 2014, dette var et klart høydepunkt. Servert på fat av Nick Floyd selv. Beskrevet, i all ydmykhet, som noe av det beste en kunne smake på i verden.

Une parfaite impérial ipa, un arôme de malt caramel et de miel, une amertume résineuse et une explosion de houblon!... un délice!

Bomber to ipa glass. Brilliant orange hue with an off-white head that sticks. Aromatics are pungent and fresh with fruits like easy mango, pineapple, granny smith apple with some malty sugar and resinous bite. The taste is complex; citrus fruits abound with the hops coming in waves against the malty spine of this beer. I’m really impressed with this one. You have to get your hands on this ipa if you’re any type of ipa fan. Cheers to 3floyds!

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep golden to orange color with a nice off white head. Aroma is incredible, with big tropical fleshy fruit hops. Flavor brings out much of the same, but has a pretty strong bitterness to it as well. Long lingering tropical hop wallop in the finish. An extraordinary double IPA!

Wow what a brew. Mine was a little older then I would have liked at about 3 months. Wonderful copper orange in color with a nice white head. Good smelling and great tasting brew. Enjoy!

Clearing the backlog - might as well follow up the Westvleteren 12 rating with a beer I liked even better. On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, Dec 2014. Orange/gold pour with a decent off-white head. Malty, orange, caramel, mango, grapefruit - whole fruit basket aroma. Taste is similar, caramel and all those fruits, bittterness comes through later. With the ridiculous amount and quality of beer they had on tap this was the one I came back to, just fantastic

Thanks cards04 for this one! I’ve been attempting to get my hands on one of these for a long time. Orange copper body with off white foamy head, good retention, nice lacing. Awesome citrus aroma, tropical fruit, maybe passionfruit, vanilla, weed, resin. Taste is perfectly balanced, not overly bitter, some pine in addition to citrus. Overall a fabulous double IPA.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 14.1.2015. Dark amber. Sweetish fruitiness in the nose, rich and a little vinous. Mildly bitter taste, nettle notes, and a little sweet too. Fairly carbonated, medium body, mildly bitter finish. Cool.
