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

brokensail (13623) - 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.

Oakes (13599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2003
Bright copper amber; large hop aroma - mint, grapefruit. Chewy and bitter palate - toffeeish malts and citrusy hops, sugar tarts, leaves. Chewy hops resonate in the lingering finish.

Koelschtrinker (13106) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 6, 2011
Vollmundig süß hopfiger Geruch, passend, überaus aromatisch. Aromatisch hopfig-herber Antrunk, sehr intensiv aber nicht übertrieben. Weiter deutlich hopfig, der amerikanische Hopfen ist deutlich schmeckbar und passt mit seinem intensiven, fast scharfen Auftreten gut dazu. Der Alkohol ist im Abgang kurz erkennbar, vollmundig hopfig, sehr kräftig, gut gelungen. Abwechslungsreiches und sehr starkes IIPA mit sporadisch auftretenden Fruchtnoten. Spitze! Test vom 29.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,14,12,13,12,13 - 12,95

Theydon_Bois (12870) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle at home - 23/11/12 (thanks to George in NC). Pours a mid amber colour with a big frothy white/off white head. Thins substantially after a minute or so, but retains a decent level and lacing follows. Nose is fresh hops, pine, caramel malt, bitter grapefruit, mango. Tastes of bitter grapefruit, bitter pine, caramel malts, light biscuit, mango, some mineral notes, touch of mango, light citrus, very fine sugars, resinous hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, bitter piney finish. Excellent DIPA - alcohol is well disguised, flavours well balanced, all round great beer. Wish I could try this side by side with Pliny and Boneyard Hop Venom ! A ’Hyped beer’ @ allegedly.com that really delivered for me !

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.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 (Bottle) Pour an orangish amber color with medium-sized white head. Great aroma! Had a smooth hoppy flavor that was absolutely delicious.
