Lugged this one home in a checked bag. Happy to give it a try.
Big, orange beer. Nice looking, though not much head. Smell exhibits tons of apricot and peach. Nice as it is different from a lot of the piney/citrusy west coast IPAs. A lot of what I would describe as perfume. Quite a lot of malt for a DIPA and very sweet. Beer is very balance as the bitter hops are balanced by the malt. I am sure this is a good quality, but I tend to like the hop bombs. Very fruity taste, but again, a bright floral peach/apricot rather than grapefruit. Mouthfeell and drinkability take a hit for me as Dreadnaught is a bit thick and syrupy, which is a huge knock in my book. Might just be a style preference, but there are a number of West Coast IPAs that I prefer to Dreadnaught. At $12 a bomber? Good stuff, still....
