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.

Split a bomber of this with a buddy into our Duvel tulips. Slightly hazy orange color with a negligible head, though it left lovely froth on top that looked like cirrus clouds and had decent lacing. My oh my, this smelled delicious! Hops, hops, hops, of course, but also plenty of citrusy notes. Lemon, orange, grapefruit. Notes of pine and alcohol, too. Wow! The smell hit me as soon as I popped the cap. Tasted like a hop sensation. It's been a while since I've had a hoppy brew and this reminded me of how much I love them. Both deliciously sweet and harshly bitter at the same time. I love it. Nice and full body, without being overly thick. I will definitely get one of these the next time I need a hop fix.
