COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hopheadís 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.

Shared 22 oz. bottle. Bottled 4/1/2016. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head that lingers. Aroma of citrus and peach; very fruity. Taste is fruity, with more citrus and peach, and a solid and sweet caramel malt base. The finish is fairly bitter and piney, but not as much as I expected, given the 100 IBUs. Very nice.

Aroma: hoppy with multiple citrus notes but not as floral as some of my favorites; Appearance: golden, clear pour with enormous white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: much sweeter and less hoppy than expected; very fruity and pretty complex; Palate: medium-heavy body with medium, fruity finish; Overall: good but not as good as ratings would indicate.

Hopmaestro (1097) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2016
Month old "Bomber": Aroma is up in your face before you know it, caramel, pine, juicy oranges and grapefruit. The taste is unbelievably fruit oriented, with sweet and ripe citrus fruits, ripe pineapple, peachy and pale bread notes. The bitterness that follows is not exaggerated, very balanced and delicate. I could drink this 24/7.

Bottle shared at the 100 Club, Portsmouth, NH. This is a big beer with big flavors, a big, malty body, and a pretty high amount of bitterness at the end. Like a lot of FFF IPAs, itís sweeter and fuller than the average IPA, and that big body mixes with the intense amount of hops to create a pretty intense experience.

gregwilsonstl (1819) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 13, 2016
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 itís 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
