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.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2019 Deep golden appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of resinous hops, fresh pine, mild citrus and light toasted malt. Similar flavor, resinous, piney and zesty with moderate bitterness and a light grainy sweetness. Medium to full body with a smooth finish. Nice.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2018 Found in bottle at binnys in Chicago. Just a dang solid beer with a healthy and well put together hopped beer. It is not just hopped for hops sake as a combination of flavors appears. One of my favorites and certainly a great winter hop forward beer.

Draft chalice, yellow with sticky head, a tropical citrus aroma and juicy flavor. Full bodied, bitter but not harsh. Some pine thrown in too. This is a DIPA done right, excellent.

The description was spot on for the aroma. Mango, peach, citrus but I would add that there is also a hint of pine. Hazy orange color with a fluffy off white head. Hoppy but not bitter, strong malt backbone but not overly sweet. The balance is incredible. Palate is bubbly enough but still slick and dense. Just excellent.

meisterbruh (7) - Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Out of bottle, probably a bit overdue to consume. Much of the hop aroma has dissipated but still a very solid brew. Citrus rind allupinit.

Very well balanced IPA. Worthy of it's position! Heavy hops and floral notes. Pithy zest lingers on after sipping. Great Summertime beverage.

From Nov 2007 I got this bottle in a trade with autumnaldave. Thanks Dave! This pours from 22oz bottle a clear medium gold with a small and fast shrinking head of foam. There's some spotty lacing that hugs the side of my glass. The smell is huge on the hops with grapefruit and some floral notes and I can just smell a bit of malt hiding in the background. The taste on first sip....wow, it sure fooled me. Yeah, the hops are what I first noticed and they're powerful and tasty with grapefruit and some pine but the malt holds its own here. Wonderful caramel malty goodness that gives the overall tasting experience a so darn balanced flavour that it leaves me shaking my head. It finishes slightly bitter but the aftertaste leaves a nice malty taste that lingers on for quite some time. And...where the heck is the alcohol?? It's not noticeable in the taste at all and there's just the slightest bit of warming after the swallow. Well done! It has a medium bordering on full mouthfeel and the carbonation is lightly done. What a sipper! I'm pretty sure that this is the best example of the style I've ever tasted. I've had samples of Dreadnaught at the last couple of GABFs that I attended and thought it was something special. This bottle proves that I was right. Thanks mucho again, Dave, for a most enjoyable drinking experience! Bottom line: If you like your DIPAs to bring both the hops and the malt to the table, this one is for you! It's an amazing brew!!
