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.

Poured from 2-oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - The color of this beer reminds me of honey. A medium white head forms on top.

S - Lots of orange citrus aromas. Hemp, pine, garden herbs, and earthiness sneak in to lesser extents.

T - The hops in this beer are both incredibly robust and unique. Like the nose, orange, pine, grapefruit rind, and earthiness wallop the palate in droves. A touch of onion dankness is detected over the graham cracker malt. The finish is delightfully bitter and fairly sweet, with a hint of grain alcohol.

M -Medium to heavy bodied with a appropriate carbonation.

O - Three Floyds beers always have a fairly unparalleled hop profile that features both citrusy and earthy notes in abundance, and this DIPA is no exception. Not my favorite for the style by a long shot, but it is a fantastic beer!
