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.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy honey color. Small white head. Some lacing. Aroma of both pine and grapefruit. Good body, about what you’d expect from an imperial IPA. Nice combo of bitterness with just enough caramel sweetness to offset. Mildly sticky, but still very drinkable. Very good, but in my opinion not quite up to expectations based on what I saw others post. It is hop juice and I appreciate that, but while very good there wasn’t a huge wow factor for me. Maybe a fresh bottle/draft pour would change my mind. Still, even though my comments are muted in comparison to others it is clear that this is another very good brew from Three Floyds.

DandyWolfFloyd (1077) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Aroma - big caramel nature with the aggressive mix of pungent and pine hops. Appearance - the body is a hazed orange. The head is off-white and 2+" and settles very slowly. Scattered lacing. Taste - is rich with a carameled malt - with a slight candy corn nature. The hops are of the Pacific Northwest variety - pungent, bitter, floral, and piney is the mixture here. Palate - medium body, oily feel with a thick texture, the carbonation is average, the finish is bitter and long in nature.

SG111 (1289) - New York, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Bottled 06/09/16 so 2 months on it. Should still be decent. Pours honey orange, big white head. Aroma is orange, booze, resin, pine, floral notes, some sweet citrus. Flavor is boozy, sweet residual sugar, orange, orange rind, and some pine. Very malt heavy. Clearly a bit past its prime. But still an excellent beer.

Ron (3609) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2016
On tap at the Brewpub with Patty for dinner on way to south Dakota. Pours hazy golden with heavy white head/carbonation. Aroma is strong hop forward. Tastes like a malt bomb with nice balance of bitterness. Great imperial IPA.

tmoreau (3754) - 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.

Nsanders (1013) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Tap at brewpub. Clear gold color and white head. Caramel, tangerine, alcohol and candied orange. Very sweet with a bight tropical bitterness. Medium body with a bubbly feel.
