I remember the first time I had a Dreadnaught. It was at a slip-n-slide party where everyone was running around in the end of a hot August in bathing suits with water guns and beers. And I had this. This masterpiece of IPAs. I used to hate IPAs. They are an acquired taste. Or maybe you just need the right IPA to turn your fancy. This was The One. The gateway IPA. The IPA that opened the door to all other IPAs to come.
Ok enough. I love it. Dreadnaught is awesome and since then I haven't disrespected it by drinking it from the bottle at drunken parties. It pours a deep golden/reddish/brown color with lots of carbonation. It has an extremely complex flowery/fruity/hopsy smell to it that just continues to complex in the taste. And 9.5%? Really? I couldn't tell, except for the buzz factor. It's brilliant. Way to go, Three Floyds.
