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.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. Unsure about bottled date, bought it yesterday at my local store.

A- Pours a nice dark orange-amber with a finger and a half worth of head that sticks around for awhile.

S- All hops in the aroma. I get lots of citrusy fruits overall- orange, mango, peach.

T- Starts off smooth with a nice hop bite. Hops are mostly of citrus with some slight pine notes. The finish is of a hint of caramel malts.

M- Light and easily drinkable for such a higher ABV. Nicely carbonated, hop bitterness is great.

Dreadnaught is an awesome Imperial IPA. After being able to walk into any decent bottle shop around me and buy this for years, its getting harder for me to find. Dreadnaught is one of my go-to’s if I’m looking for a big IIPA.

Poured from a 22oz bottle to a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Color: A cloudy orange with an off white head.

Smell: Peach and mango come through at first. followed by great earthy hops and orange.

Taste: Same as the aroma. Beautiful.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, smooth with a light dryness on the palate.

Overall: A big citrus aroma and taste. Full bodied and very well balanced. Three Floyds is always doind brews right. Cheers.
