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 (14022) - 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.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 28, 2008
(10/16/08) Bottle at friends’ house in Philadelphia. Slightly hazy amber color with a medium beige head. Aroma full of hops, citrus, some piney notes and some balancing caramel and biscuits. Sweet flavor with quite a bit of malt, caramel, some biscuit notes, a bit of honey and some nutty notes. Continues bitter and hoppy with nice grapefruit and lemon notes but the malty background is always apparent. Medium to full-bodied. Very good and quite balanced.

Bottle as shown. Pours a hazy yellow gold with small frothy off white head thats lasts awhile. The aroma is a strong floral hop and citrus. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet citrus hop and wheat with light bitterness on the finish. Hides alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very good IIPA from Three Floyds.
