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: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Crystal clear amber color with an off white head. Fairly low retention and lacing.

Nice mild sweet citrus nose. Mild floral hops. Nice and pleasant but not amazing. 

Flavor is a bit of a miss for me for the style. Mostly Citrus but a little too bitter. Mild malt, low sweetness. Not greatly balanced or flavorful.

Light bodied. High carb. Crisp. Mildly fresh. 

Overall I am a little disappointed by this. I had pretty high hopes. After having Zombie Dust which was outstanding, this is just a miss. Although still good, not what it should be.
