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.

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Pours a hazy pale orange with a big frothy off-white head. Aroma has strong notes of mango and citric hops on a very malty body. The taste is amazingly complex - sweet mango-peach rapidly turning intensely bitter. The finish is lingering bitterness. The taste of the beer makes the mouth water making the beer less dry than I would like but I suppose that this is a testament to the beer’s flavor. Excellent.

tmoreau (3564) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Another one of those beers that I enjoyed a number of times thinking that I had previously reviewed it. This time on tap at Lunar Brewing Co., dispensed to a snifter displaying a clear, golden hue, with a fluffy layer of fairly persistent, soft white head foam, and clingy, wavy spray as lacing. The nose was expressive esters as tropical fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, and pit variety, with some resin, and malt sweetness. Medium+ bodied, with appropriate carbonation, the taste added a pronounced citrus & rind bitterness that lingered, decent alcohol presence, and just enough malt sweetness to smooth and take a slight edge off of both. One of the more "balanced" DIPAs that you’ll find.

Sdaniel90 (861) - Mexico City, MEXICO - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle, 65cl. Aged for over a year. Sparkling amber with a creamy offwhite head. Unbelievable aromas of fruity hops, caramel, resin, alcohol. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Extremely smooth and creamy. Medium sweet with medium bitterness. Deep fiery roasted character into an exquisite and complex alcohol finish. Absolutely delicious. Expected it to be more bitter though.
