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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Copper-gold color with orange and yellow hues. Thin head with short retention. Beer showed a chill haze.

Light citrus, apricot, mango and pine notes. white flowers.

Malt tones offset by the hops. Citrus, floral, pineapple, pine and resin.

Very dry, medium-bodied beer (despite the alcohol level). The hops seemed to lean hard on the bittering side of the equation, to the point of being overly so. Alcohol was well balanced as a result.

Seems a beer that is kind-of in-between, without really taking a position.

Serving type: on-tap
