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.

Bottle. Amber color with medium head that diminished quickly. Full hoppy aroma. Medium body. Complex balanced flavor with a great long bitter finish. Great brew and will hunt out another bottle.

mcberko (12996) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 22 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a beautiful opaque dark orange with a small white head. Aroma screams tropical fruits, with peaches, mango, mandarin oranges, truckloads of citrus and resinous hops, and rich caramel malts to balance. Flavour is omnipotent, with rich tropical fruits as aforementioned, loads of citrus and resinous hops, balanced by sufficient caramel malts, finishing tropical fruity and citrus hoppy. Magnificently well-done IIPA. Deserving of its reputation.

Benzai (12592) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG II. One of my big time wants thanks to tderoeck. Huge thanks Tim! Clear orange color, small to medium sized white to off - white head. Smell malts, oranges, lightly grapefruit and hops. Taste malts, hops, moderately grapefruit, medium to heavy bitter. Long lingering bitterness in the finish with a touch of fruityness. Medium to full body and carbonation. Well, it’s a very nice beer, but (maybe because of huge expectations) it’s not the gigantic 4+ I had hoped it would be. Still, I would drink this everyday if I had the chance.

Bottle. Orange color. Grapefruit, mint and lime in the lovely aroma. Very fiorm oily, earthy and flowery, somewhat perfumed hopbitter flavor. Long oily grapefruity, hopbitter aftertaste with rubber. Good beer, especially the aroma convinces.
