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

22 oz bottle poured into brooklyn tall stemware. Big thanks to cari at Kahn's in indiana for helping put together my package!

appearance: hazy golden orange with a plumy puffy wihte head. Nice lacing

aroma: Big complex nose, the hops really just jump out at you, rose water, grapefruit, perfumy flowers, kind of smells like when you open the top of a batch of hoppy homebrew.

taste: Very big upfront with a fair amount of bitterness as expected and some sweet juicy malt as well although the bitterness wins in landslide. This beer seems to be bitter on the overall with a less than desirable amount of malt to balance it.

Overall: Tasty brew, this is the second i drank and the first tasted much more sweet than i expected as though it had aged, im not sure if they were from two different bottlings as there are no marking on FFF's bottles, but regardless a tasty brew. It feels like a beer that must be had on draught to be properly experienced. Live up to the hype? i will let you decide that on your own
