COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hopheads 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.

Bomber from bulldogp04. Thanks for this great beer Dean. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small white head. Strong citric aromas. Really thick body with mild, near creamy, carbonation. Flavor is really floral/citrus over roasted caramel. Its very hoppy, but the caramel is detectable. Goes down very smooth. Leaves a bitter burn behind. Incredibly good beer. Good reason to live in Munster.

Scopey (13343) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
Tap at Mikkeller Bar. It pours light orange, with a thin white head. The nose is tangerine, orange, grapefruit, resin, leaf, grass, pine, brown bread and a touch of farmyard. The taste is pine, leaf, grass, resin, alcohol warmth, orange, tangerine and grapefruit, with a warming, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Quite boozy actually. Good stuff, but its not the most drinkable IIPA Ive had.
