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.

One of my favorite ipa’s. Not over the top with hops but definitely hoppy. If you can’t get zombie dust this is a good replacement

650 mL bottle poured into a goblet. Hazy golden body with a nice, strangely tinted head to it. The head itself has a yellowish tinge. Beautiful lacing on the glass and wisps of foam atop the beer. Very hoppy. Lemony citrus that has almost a soapy character to it. The sweetness behind it combines to enhance this. That same soapy flavor extends into the taste, but the hops are still abundant. Lemon and grapefruit hops with a sweetness behind it. Very little bitterness in the finish. Perhaps it’s too sweet, though. Nearly perfect body to it. Nice carbonation and a clean finish. Just a hint of bitterness in the finish.It has a strong hop profile, but not quite the hop flavors I like in an IPA.

Look - Thin head but weak pour in bar. Light apple juice look with clear around the edges. Thin lacing. Unique. Smell - Pineapple. Orange. Grapefruit. Other citrus. Earth. Resin. Barley. Taste - Bitter and malt complemented well by the citrus. Feel - Carbonation. Medium to heavy. Tongue does curl. Overall - I still want a bomber of it. Not what I was expecting. This borders on being a strong ale. Pick it up if you can.

Bottle. Very nice hoppy beer, lots of orange, citrusy, resiny. High bitterness. Not as high caramel as in some of their other ones.

Beersmithbacon (111) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Intense citrus and mango hop aroma. Intense hoppy bitterness balance by the overall fresh happiness. Some alcohol heat. Well balanced malts without any sweetness.
