Style | ABV
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.

This is my fourth or fifth bottle and after the first one I wanted to try it again since the first time I tried it I was unimpressed. I thought maybe it was off for some reason so I asked for three bottles in a trade to try it fresh and then aged a year or so.

After all five bottles I remain unimpressed. It is a good DIPA with all the pine and citrus with a caramel/malty backbone and long dry bitter aftertaste. In a blind tasting this would be in the middle of the pack. Is it the best DIPA in the world? There is no way.
