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.

What a nice beer. Pours dark golden. Nice lacing on this guy. Nice head. Aromas of pineapple, papaya and lemon. Taste is wonderful pineapple and papaya are there. There is some sweetness but it marries beautifully with the bitterness on the end. Not as OVERLYhoppy as I thought. Which is great. The mouthfeel is very nice. Good carbonation. Well rounded and well balanced. One of my favorite Three Floyd’s beers.

Wow. So many flavors. I get pineapple, and some very tropical flavors. Not super strong tasting, but you can tell its a high abv. Great depth and color. I loved this, had to drink the whole bomber by myself!

Bottle. Beautiful dark amber pour. Very sweet and citrusy on the nose. Get a lot of peach and grapefruit on the palate with a big hop presence. Another FFF masterpiece.

Very nice stuff. Huge citrus head and a great malty backbone. Bittersweet finish with some booze. Pours clear orange with ok head and lacing. Some resin and a hint of mint. Bottle.

A lot of sweet carmel malts up front to match the nose. Then the hops remind you it’s a west coast brew times ten. Surprising amount of citrus. More sweet than sour, like pineapple and mango. The sweetness from the fruit is almost candy like. Still some classic pine flavor too. Solid bitter aftertaste. Big everywhere!

Madsen1635 (392) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 12, 2015
Bottle. Clear dark amber pour with dense lasting offwhite head. Aroma is sweet with lots of mango and peach. Notes of citrus as well. Taste is very well balanced. There is just enough sweetness and body from the malt to take on the hoppy bitterness but still keeping the freshness to it. You can still appreciate all the complex notes long after you have finished your sip. Quite low carbonation. Beautiful

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled 10/31/2014. Slightly hazy orange with almost three fingers of off-white head. Aromas of citrus, floral, booze, caramel. Tastes of grapefruit citrus, a bit of booze, caramel, pine, resin. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.

Smakt på CBC 2014, dette var et klart høydepunkt. Servert på fat av Nick Floyd selv. Beskrevet, i all ydmykhet, som noe av det beste en kunne smake på i verden.

Une parfaite impérial ipa, un arôme de malt caramel et de miel, une amertume résineuse et une explosion de houblon!... un délice!

Bomber to ipa glass. Brilliant orange hue with an off-white head that sticks. Aromatics are pungent and fresh with fruits like easy mango, pineapple, granny smith apple with some malty sugar and resinous bite. The taste is complex; citrus fruits abound with the hops coming in waves against the malty spine of this beer. I’m really impressed with this one. You have to get your hands on this ipa if you’re any type of ipa fan. Cheers to 3floyds!
