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.

Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and very hoppy - peach and grapefruit. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and bitter finish. Crisp. 250511

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, Session 3. Pours clear gold with a fluffy, off-white head. Rich citrus on the nose, nice and dank, with tangerine and suggestions of anise. Medium to big sweet flavor with pale bread, sticky ripe citrus, pine needles, grapefruit, lemon. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, with sticky and resinous hops, lots of ripe, gooey citrus fruits. Solid. A ballsy beer, but still damn drinkable.

Bomber from bulldogp04. Thanks for this great beer Dean. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small white head. Strong citric aromas. Really thick body with mild, near creamy, carbonation. Flavor is really floral/citrus over roasted caramel. It’s very hoppy, but the caramel is detectable. Goes down very smooth. Leaves a bitter burn behind. Incredibly good beer. Good reason to live in Munster.

Amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee with lots of grapefruit hops, and a hint of alcohol. Sweet caramel flavour with intense and complex hops, with citrus and pine dominating

Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours a great-looking hazy yellow-orange golden. A small creamy film head on top. Aroma is bitter, hoppy and lightly fruity. Super nice mouthfeel. Flavour is complex bitter, lots of oranges, pineapple, grass (is there English hops in this?). Not as bitter as the Green Flash, but a wonderful balance. I slightly prefer the Green Flash, but this is still wonderful.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: Deep amber color, hazy, thin off-white head. S: Tons of citrus, mostly orange. Nice piney, resinous finish. It’s got my mouth watering already. T: A burst of grapefruit and orange initially, followed by a caramel sweetness and a bit of alcohol on the finish. Bitter, but not overly so. M: Very smooth, great body, and perfect level of carbonation. D: Despite the high ABV and the slight alcohol bite, this one has such great flavors that you could drink it all day.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Golden beer with a nice lasting white head. Creamy aroma, hoppy, grassy, metal notes, grapes, grapefruit and nice notes of pine apple. Fruity hoppy flavor, grapes, metal notes, creamy, some hay, grass and apples. Long bitter metal finish with perfume and fruity notes. Incredibly complex and tasty.
