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: APR 23, 2014 Served-Tap,bottle, and cask. Cask will always be my favorite. Very fruity but the complexity of the malts and hops stand out. Strong hop finish. Readily available from my location.

Great double IPA. Great balance between hops and malt. Initial taste packs a punch, but the finish is smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mango. Citrus. Pine. Orange Amber with a thick foamy white head. Slow fade. Thick lacing. Chunks of foam floating on the surface. Big fruit. A hint of candy sweet. Thick chewy mouthfeel. Resin. Bitter finish with the faintest hint of booze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

amber color; citrusy hop aroma; intensely hoppy, but still quite drinkable; bitter, citrusy hop flavor; fairly well balanced and smooth for such a hop monster

Bottle into a wineglass showing moderately filtered caramel brown with a finger of quickly dissipating clean white foam. The nose shows moderately intense notes of mango, peach, and light tropical fruit (pineapple, kiwi) on a strong caramel malt backbone. Exactly as the description. The palate is light to medium bodied and well carbonated Moderately intense flavors of mango, peach, and pineapple with hints of kiwi with a strong yet restrained bitterness followed by another resurgence of fresh fruit on the palate. Alcoholic and hoppy zest all around the palate but still very drinkable.

Pra encerrar a noite. 3Floyds Dreadnaught IPA. Ótima west coast, lembra muito centennial na lupulagem. Ótima! 4/5 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Troupis (251) - - MAR 4, 2017
Floral heavy headed hops. Has hints of a triple IPA in its finish. Reminds me of Hop Stoopid with a bigger price tag but also a freshness that sets it apart. Super complex palate which can be hard at 100 IBU but totally pulled off. This is as good as hoppy bears get. Reminds me of Pliney but with less citrus and more mango/tobacco hints. Bottle from Lous on Hobson outside Naperville. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
