Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
9.5% ABV 99 IBUs - 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 flavor is both smooth and memorable.

A big thank you to NFLMVP for this beer.

I love a hoppy beer, and this fit the bill. The smell was very nice, hops with a mild sweetness that I am not familiar with in the DIPA's I have had.

The taste was big hops hit up front, followed by the sweet caramel flavor that was in the smell. I was not expecting this, and at first I wasn't sure if I liked this. After a few drinks, realized it helped round out the beer, and was overall a good thing. I still prefer a little stronger hops finish.

Overall a great beer, different than what I am used to in a DIPA, but a great interpretation of the style.
