Congratulations to the folk at Three Floyds on your 10th anniversary!!! MANY more!!!!MoDog (928) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUN 30, 2007
This hop bomb pours a bright copper/amber body with a decent enough yellowish head. Good lacing. The aroma is chock full of PNW hops and a strong bitter earthiness. Sorry, malts. You never reached my nose. They do come through slightly in the flavor, a light caramel sweetness. More malts were needed here. The bitterness gets more involved, grapefruit, pine, pineapple, soil, citrus zest. Nice. And that bitterness lasts a mighty long time. Nice, indeed.
CHEERS! CHEERS! CHEERS!

On tap at FFF brewpub, poured into a trappist glass. This ale pours a deep golden amber color with a miniamal beige head that quickly fades. Minimal lacing. Let me qualify this reveiw by saying that Dreadnaught is my favorite beer. That being said, let the taste bud punishment begin. This is one big brew!!! Aroma and flavor very similar to Dreadnaught, but dare I say, with an added punch. That same big citrus hop hit, with a huge warming alcohol finish. This bad boy will bitter your tounge, then heat it up with an alcohol presence that tastes well beyond 10.5%!!! Not quite the beautiful balance that is Dreadnaught, but this is supposed to be big. Very big! Let’s all stand back and take a moment to appreciate 10 years of unparalled brewing!! Also, the bottle artwork is awsome...the huge poster that sits above the taps with all the FFF characters is duplicated! EddieG (169) - Palos Heights, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2007
A unique beer that is extemely tart and bitter while providing an incredibly dry malt profile. Very typical in terms of the "Floyds" dynamic but with much less residual sweetness than some other big high hopped offerings. Allow this to warm a bit as the flavors seem to present themselves in a more complex manner as the beer warms. A rather thin mouthfeel with unique pineapple, citrus overtones that form the backdrop of the puckering brew railcat1 (706) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2007
