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.

Koelschtrinker (10649) - 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

Bottled: Well here it was standing in front of me, ready to be consumed. I’ve gone thru some things to get hold of this, but thats a story, I’ll keep to my self. Egajdzis was my saviour when he kindly traded this to me. Thanks a lot, friend. Is it as good as antizipated. Not quite, but its still a damned good beer. Amber/orange coloured. Light dusty. Off white huge dense head. Obviously there is a huge amount of hops in the nose with some herbal notes. Not as extreme as I thougth it would be. Flavour is very very hoppy. Has some caramel and fruity notes. Light herbal and spicy. Not a very balanced beer, but these beers seldom are. Has a killer bitterness in the end. As said this is a fine beer, but I had expected more. Thanks again, Eric.
