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.

Many thanks to Alex (page101) for hooking me up with this on an awesome trade! Clear orange-yellow pour with two finger head, good retention and incredible lacing. The smell is nothing short of heaven! Huge citrus notes with freshly picked resiny hops and a touch of bubblegum. The taste is just as incredible as the nose. Tons of citrus, fresh picked resiny hops, and pine, but perfectly balanced with just enough sweet caramel malt to offset the bitterness. The alcohol is non-existent making this scary drinkable. This is probably the smoothest imperial IPA I've ever had. Maybe the best. It's definitely in the same class as PTE, Hopslam, and Sculpin. What a way to be introduced to Three Floyds! Can't wait for my next one!
