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.

Bottle pours crystal clear golden with minimal white head. Aroma is intense tropical hops with notes of peach and citrus. Flavor is similar to aroma, but with a pronounced malt backbone and just enough sweetness to balance this big brew.

Tap at Js. Pours a clear gold with a finger of foam that lingers. Whoa! Super fresh on tap. Tons of ruby red grapefruit with light dank notes and tangerine aromas. Clean and crisp on the palate with more citrus and ruby red grapefruit. Light bitterness and good lingering juicy fruit and dank. This was quite a head of its time. Fantastic.

Lots of mango, citrus, then caramel malt followed by quick bitter flavor. A touch alcohol warming at the end. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyWolfFloyd (1200) - 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 (1485) - 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.
