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 poured into a tulip. Amber color with light head. Aroma of mango, peach, citrus and pine. Taste is mango and light caramel malt with a good hop profile. Finish is a bit too much pepper. Overall a great beer.

Bottled 2/1/2016, tasted 2/13/2016. Huge thx to HankDaStank for hooking me up! Dark copper. Thick, dense white head. Beautiful IPA. Effervescent. Huge aroma of tropical fruit. Lacing sticks to glass. Tastes of mango, grapefruit but not sweet. Big body, heavy for an IPA. Lingering bitterness, but it’s pleasant. Dry crackers. This is a big body, big hoppy, in your face beer. I figured this was going to be just another over hyped IPA that was going to let me down, but it really is good, and I cant remember having another beer like it.

22 oz bottle from beer temple in Chicago. Drinking during super bowl 50. Blast of resin on first sip and a hop explosion overall. The malt really stands up as well.

This beer was near perfect in every way. Didn't expect it. Three Floyd's is sometimes overhyped. But put this tasty Dreadnaught in with Zombie Dust and Dark Lord as living up to their reputation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bit opaque copper, of-white lasting, lacing foam head. Nice hoppy aroma, some floral notes. Great bitter taste, grass and leather tones, quite good. (Munster 201510)

mambossa (221) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Bomber from E. Grand Whole Foods in Chicago. Pour to snifter, hazed orange pour. Syrupy, ripe tropical nose with pine and alcohol sharpness, lots of honey, rind and zest all over. Flavor displays the same; nice bitter linger, fairly sticky body, tons of gooey ripe fruit tapered by an assertive and lingering pine and bitter flowers. Faint bubblegum on the finish as well. A pretty standard but very well-made, well-balanced imperial. A lot of familiar imperial flavors showcased, but none are overbearing. Bottle may be a month or two old (date is obscured, looks like from August), would like to have it a bit fresher. Still, much better than most.

Pours copper, awesome sticky white head. Aroma is big citrus, tangerine, caramel malt, and hops. Taste is the same: candy, bubble gum, pineapple, malts and piney hops. It's an awesome IPA. Three Floyd's doesn't disappoint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
