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.

4.33/5  rDev -2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

From the bottle to my glass, to my mouth, could life be better, I think not. Good foam action, generating a two finger head of thick, slightly off white foam, that I could take a nap, well almost. Far from clear, it most closely resembles a 8 on the SRM beer color chart. Smell, ooo la la, aromas of flowers from the hops, sweet nectars, but mostly grapefruit, lemon and other citrus flavors from the massive use of hops. Taste is lots of what I like. Flavors of grapefruit, pine, lemon peel, and lime are in the forefront, with a sweetness from hints of malt, orange, and guava. Mouthfeel is creamy, thick and zing. A slight dryness on the sides of my tongue and soft palate. I would like some more of this...please.
