I poured into a pint glass to one finger of off white head. This beer is orange/amber in color. The aroma is wonderful. It is full of tropical and citrus fruits. The taste is full of those fruits as well. The malt balances this beer out. The 9.5 ABV is hidden well. This is a very good beer.

22 oz bottle split and poured into a Duvel tulip. No date or info.

A - Hazy golden amber in color, it shines decently with a low-forming bone-colored head. Good retention with lots of spotty lace left over.

S - Hoptacular! Tons of freshly picked-smelling cascade and chinook hops just waft out of the brew freely. Notes of grapefruit citrus fall behind the pine needle. Rich caramel malts fill the aroma behind the hops providing a nice backbone.

T - It's not massively bitter which is what I was expecting from the nose. Lots of balanced hop flavor. Grapefruit resin and pine needle with hints of mango and lots of sweet caramel notes in the background.

M - Medium-bodied and sweet with a moderately bitter finish. Resiny and dry lingering. A good carbonation level adds a bit of a crisp finish.

D - Better shared but it's a good DIPA. I like this one a lot, not too bitter, good balance, nice flavor. Very well-done double. No hint of the alcohol that's in it at all.

REALLY excited to taste and review this beer; been wanting to try it for a while. Big thanks to klshanks for the hookup, awesome trader!

A: pour into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass yeilds a lovely hazed gold-tan beer with a 1" beige head. Receding creates lacing that just wont quit.

S: Some serious dank hops at work here. Layers upon layers of citrus rind and sticky pine. Tone of baking bread underneath and a slight alcoholic nip on the back end. Nice. I'm getting giddy.

T: Yesss...This is the good stuff. Super complex and balanced, much more balanced than I expected. Superb hop overtones with massive pine and grapefruit, and tight controlled bitterness. Not palate crushing by any means and well maintained by a bready and semisweet malt backing. Alcohol comes into the picture without ever being solvent or fusel. Only complaint from me is that I would like a little bit more bitterness. I wish I had a date on the bottle so I could determine if the bitterness has faded from a bit of time or if this is what the brewer intended.

M: Nice and creamy. Fantastic rich body that has power and presence but never becomes cloying. Medium carbonation agitates the flavors out of the beer but is not prickly or overbearing.

D: Good for what the beer is; this guy isn't meant to be thrown down quickly or in large quantities. 22oz is more than enough.

All in all, this beer is not quite what I expected. It is every bit as good as I thought it was going to be but in a different manner. Really well done, and I hope one day I get the opportunity to catch a fresh pint at the source.

Bomber poured into a snifter

A- Poured a hazy, dark orange into the snifter. About 1 finger and a half of fluffy white head that sticks around, and sticks to the glass nicely.

S- Strong hops and a little piney. Citrus notes tickle the back of your nostril too.

T- Oh, my! Strong citrus, strong grapefruit, strong hops. Very wonderfully done...almost, sexy.

M- Bubbly and light. Very citrusy, may get a lil' pucker action.

D- I have found my new 'Go-To' DIPA!!! Very drinkable, especially for the ABV.

Bottle. Pours a deep orange amber color with a flufy white, slightly tan head that collars around the glass as it settles. Nice lace forms as the head goes down. A very malty, sweet smelling citrus hop flavor eminates from the nose. Very nice smelling. Tropical fruit type aroma. Nice medium mouthfeel. The taste is sweet upfront with a nice fruity, hoppy flavors that lingers for a while. Very slight alcohol bite at the end. Very easy drinking for being a 9.5%. Really well balanced beer. Totally deserves to be rated as high as it is.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A: A hazy amber hue with orange highlights body and a decent size creamy head that leaves great lacing on the glass.

S: I can't decide if it's pineapple or grapefruit I'm picking up in the aroma, but it's definitely blended with piney hops. A very sweet smelling beer with fruity esters, loads of hops, a soft caramel malts in the background.

T: One of the sweeter DIPAs I've had, but is perfectly balanced with a much needed bitter aftertaste. Smooth grapefruit, light hops, sweet pineapple, mango, white sugars, and a noticable caramel malts are a great blend on the palate. Not as hoppy as some DIPAs, but still one of the better ones I've tried.

M: Medium body with lively carbonation and light syrup texture.

D: My first FFF and it was not a let down. Great beer that is extremely easy to drink. Highly recommend to any DIPA lover.

Thanks Dankbeers619! You are one dirty bastard when it comes to bottle sharing (in an exceptionally good way).

A - Slight murky orange copper with a ling lasting big whitish head. Little lacing.

S - Big citrusy huge piny hop aroma, little bit of sweet malts. Lite fruity esters. A little alcohol.

F/M - Piny resinous citrusy hops. Quite resinous. Light caramel maltiness, little bit bready. Very bitter. Dry, slightly astringent finish. Lingering piny aftertaste. Medium body, moderate carbonation, light alcoholic warmth.

D - Good, clean and easy drinking. Too much resinous flavors, but that's okay. Quite flavorful and worthy of another glass.

This was a late addition to the tasting lineup as a friend had unexpectedly brought this back from Chicago for Trey. Trey was nice enough to share this with me.

Poured into a tulip, the color is deep orange amber. Capped off by a great thick and coarse head that leaves spotty gobs of lacing, this is a beautiful pour.

An explosion of citrus reminiscent of west coast IPAs. Grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, and a huge dank hop bitterness inundate the nose. The taste is again intense grapefruit, hints of pineapple, but a great floral character slides in there as well. There is a good malt backbone that just serves to balance a bit of the bitterness but doesn't add noticeable sweetness. The alcohol is not easily found, as I had this pegged for a 7%er.

Resinous and sticky, hops are the story of this beer. This is one that a) I wish were distributed in Philly, and b) I wish didn't fly off the shelves so quickly in the midwest so that I could get my hands on it more easily.

A-nice deep, clear golden amber color with a good two fingers of white head that leaves a beautiful lace on the glass

S-huge notes of grapefruit, theres a good bit of citrus, hops galore, with a slight sweet caramel malt backbone that really barely shows through

T-follows the nose, huge HOPS! big grapefruit tastes, lots of citrus, Honey , a hint of piney resign, maybe a hint of the caramel malt backbone finishing slighty bitter ( orange Peel ) in a good way

M-full bodied beer that is very smooth, quite syrupy in a great way with Nice carbonation , going down easy

Poured into tulip. Dark golden and very clear. Fluffly white head that sticks around for quite awhile.

Big piney grapefruit in the nose. Citrus and very floral. Slight sweetness. Very nice.

WOW! Hop smack right in the kisser. The malt balances just at the last second with sweet and bready. Bitter after taste. Lots of the promised grapefruit and pine. Great lacing.

Mouthfeel is pleasant. Not heavy. Great balancing act. Very good drinkability. The ABV is going to sneak up because I'm drinking this way to fast.

One of my favorite IIPA's. Man, do I wish I could get this gem all the time. Nicely done.

Poured into a tulip from a 22oz bomber.

A - Looks off liquid gold with some slight orange hints. There is a thin white head that recedes quickly and leaves a nice ring around the glass.

S - Delicious slight honey aromas with some nice sweet grapefruit and tangerines. Very typical but well executed DIPA aroma. Nice flowery bouquet as well. There is a lot of tropical fruits in here as well. Pineapple and some papaya. Wow. The more I get into this aroma the more variety pops up.

T & M - Flavor is as expected and delicious. Starts off with some nice citrusy hop flavor and some nice bitterness. It is followed by that great tropical fruit flavor. Tangerines and grapefruit with sweet oranges as well. After this nice hop pageant there is a solid malt backbone with nice grassy and earthy tones. Some nut and slight spices are also perceived. The feel is nice and medium bodied with great alcohol warmth and nice crisp notes. Great carbonation level. Clean flavors as well.

D - Very delicious and highly deserved of praise. Very easy to drink because its well made. Higher ABV might be a danger.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with slight hues of red and green. I'm guessing the green hue comes from the wealth of dry hopping.

The smell is a good combination of malts and tropical hops. Pineapple, orange, and pine hop oils are pleasantly placed to provide a great aroma.

The taste is chock full of hops with a good deal of malts to balance it. This has the balance of 60% hops 40% malts as I like in a DIPA. After the initial taste of caramel malts, my mouth is bombarded by pleasant tropical hops that remind me of pineapple and mangos. There is also peach, orange, and a bit of pine in the aftertaste.

This has a rich feel in the mouth that is medium to full in body but definitely heavy on the tongue. The taste is clean for how hoppy it is providing a mild hop aftertaste.

This is a very drinkable DIPA, especially at nearly 10%.

I really enjoy FFF's beers, the hop combinations are great. They definitely have the hoppy beers down, I wish I could get my hands on some dark lord to try their high end stouts.

Served in a stone IPA glass with Real Time playing. The perfect glass and politics to enhance it all...what better setting for my 100th BA review!

Pours a golden copper orange color, a touch lighter than many similar IIPAs. Two/three finger head. Not the thickest or creamiest, but very respectable none the less.

A floral symphony! Grape fruit, citrus lemon and other flavors. The malt is so subtle in the back ground it is almost like it's not there.

Damn...this bottle is old! Well so much for the perfect 100th review, but since FFF doesn't bottle date I suppose this is how they wanted me to enjoy it. OK...it's not really old but compared to the tap version I had last week this is a huge step back. Hops up front pinching on the tongue, citrus and amazingly clean and crisp. A bit fresher and they almost bite down on your tongue and burn like alcohol will at the finish of a beer. Here the malt is getting a bit more attention than it serves. Caramelized fruit mixes in with the citrus notes and truly doesn't disappoint. Amazing how this beer effects the tongue. All beers should hit the front of your tongue first where you will pick up on the sweet malt and then as the beer moves back you'll pick up on the bitter effects. The malt opens this beer barely, but the hops just out of nowhere just consume your entire tongue. Then as they leave the malt sticks around just long enough to remind you that it's also a sweet beer. The alcohol is virtually non existent.

I often feel the best sign of a GREAT IPA is that when a hair more age than you'd like, it's still an amazing treat. Hopslam does this...and I feared dreadnaught was a one trick pony, but nope. This is still a true master piece.

I often pass by this beer because of the price. 10 bucks for a 22oz is obscene. That's nearly a 33 dollar 6 pack. Or nearly double the price of a hopslam 6er. But damn if this isn't worth it. This beer is just sublime.

Pours a golden-orange hue with a nice foamy white head.

Smell is tropical fruits and orangey hops. Nice pineapple, mango smell mingled with orange zest and slightly piney hops.

Taste lives up to the awesome smell. There is a nice malt bill that compliments the tropical fruit flavors and smooth hoppy character. Not an over-the-top hop bomb but rather a nice balanced fruit juicy hop presence. Tons of hops in the mix but not bitter. Finish dries the palate out nicely.

Wonderfully creamy ever so slightly resiny mouthfeel. Superb.

Well, what's not to like? Not for fans of west coast style hop bombs for sure but this is one really well balanced brew. Being that it costs as much as a sixer of Alpha King I want to hate it but I can't. It's just too damn good.

Well done Three Floyds!

Very slightly hazy golden orange pour with a pretty decent sized fluffy off-white head after an aggressive pour from the bomber. The big head didn't really stick around long and there wasn't a tremendous of lacing. The smell is of pine and tropical fruits. There's also a good amount of sweet bready malts noticeable in the aroma. Great hop presence on the tongue. Again, a biting pine with tropical fruits following. The finish is of bitter grapefruit. Pretty good amount of sweetness to balance, but there just wasn't as much bitterness as I was hoping for. I actually thought this was a bit on the weak side for a DIPA. Perhaps I thought this was going to be something it was never intended to be. In any regard it is very good. I've just had other DIPA's that offer a bit more in viscosity and bitterness.

Got this as an extra in a trade. Glad to try it as I've heard good things. 22oz bottle...

A: Medium golden copper with a thick 1+ inch white head that fades at a decent pace. Very good.

S: I get intense citrus / piney hops upfront quickly followed by some grapefruit and finished with some faint suagry malt. Good.

T: Starts with an incredibly bitter dry hop which is quickly followed by some grapefruit. Some creamy citrus in the middle with faint malty fruit hidden on the back. Good.

M: Medium body with a heavy dry carbonation. Decent.

D: This one is a little tougher to get through because of the super bitter hop forcefield. Once you break the barrier, you're good. Decent.

All in all, this is a good brew. Glad I got to try it. If you like super bitter / dry IPA's, then this is your brew. I'm not huge on the super bitter thing, so it's good for me, but not great. Definitely worth hunting if you like the style.

I haven't had this one in a while, but I've had it many times in the past, including on tap at the brewpub.

A: Cloudy, light orange/yellow color with about 1/2 finger worth of head and nice carbonation.

S: OK, this thing is starting to scare me. My mouth is puckered, I've got my guard up, and I'm bracing myself for the hop explosion! Malt, orange, grapefruit, a bit of peach, and awesomeness! - in that order.

T: Man candy! Lady candy! Everybody candy! This one is actually very malty and the alcohol taste like it is wrapped in pixie stick dust, gummy bears, cotton candy, and every other yummy junk food under the sun. It's almost caramel and pine were mixed together, re-mix, and continuously tweaked until perfection was achieved. Wowser!

M: Despite its name, this one doesn't coat, but it's definitely a slow drinker. VERY slow even. Is citrus a texture? That is really the best way to describe the mouthfeel on this one.

D: This is one of those rare brews that gets even better after every sip. If a genie granted me three wishes, I would use one of them to ask the genie to give me the talent that the peeps at FFF possess. The ABV is high, the candy-coated alcohol is present, but I don't give a shit.

FFF is the best brewery in the world.

First pour is un-impressive. Nice copper color with a real thing white head that fades quick. No - to not much lacing to speak of. Aroma is a little lacking. A little lemon and pine hop aroma meets the nose. Flavor makes up for what the aroma lacks. Good maltyness with a little crystal malt to pop it. Good lemony and pine hop up front and through the middle with a nice lingering bitter finish that lasts. Mouthfeel is a little slick, but still good. I was honestly expecting a lot more from this beer. I had high hopes. I'd give it another try, maybe my bottle was a little old.

Hazy orangish-brown with a frothy head.

Smells caramelly and malty Accented by a big fruity grapefruit note.

Flavor is deep and complex. Roasted caramel and malt supports grapefruit mango pineapple pine tree notes. Yum.

Mouthfeel chewy.

Wow this is a nicely done beer. I had no idea it was 9.5% Hops and malt working together make this a well rounded and fantastic IPA.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle (no freshness date) into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange with a tight, sticky head. A small amount of carbonation bubbles maintain a lasting head.

Smell: Very fruity aroma. I get bursts of mangos, oranges, grapefruits, and other citrus fruits. Some light herbal notes followed by a firm malty backbone of caramel/toffee. I could smell this all night.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Wow! What a wonderful blend of citrus hops and sweet caramel malts. Intense tropical fruits interwoven with superb aromatic malts. Mouthfeel is so smooth, rich, and creamy. Bitterness is there, but this is so well balanced that it seems minimal.

Drinkablility: For an Imperial IPA at 9.5% abv, this one drinks very well. No alcohol presence at all. This is so good, a fruit fly I just found in my glass couldn't even resist. He kept buzzing around trying to get a whiff of this great brew and was fearless enough to make the ultimate sacrifice for one little sip of Dreadnaught. Dreadnaught, a word that literally means fear nothing.

bomber poured into tulip sept18 2010

A golden orange with lots of suspended particles and a couple little flakes being moved around by tiny little bubbles feeding a two finger head that slowly falls to a film leaving a fair bit of lace along the way

S lots of tropical fruit like the bottle says peach and mango are there but I get lots of pineapple, guava a little grapefruit and a tiny bit of pine and caramel with floral aspect that brings it all together. I love a big ass fruity DIPA and this one delivers and the booze is nowhere to be found

T a little more caramel and pine but other then that it tastes as it smells and I wouldn't ask for much more

M not overly thick and a little coarse but it's bitter without doubt and enjoyable

D my bomber went down a little faster then I planned, this one could hurt you if you let it. I would like some more but I wouldn't want to drink another bomber

one of the better DIPA's I've ever had and I would love to be able to buy it in my part of the world but for now I'll need to thank MasterSki for sending it my way

Poured into my pint glass this brew pours a hazy golden yellow with a very frothy head. Wonderful lacing is left on the glass as this brew goes down. Almost perfect.

S: The aroma on this IPA is simply incredible. Savory fruit, grapefruit, a little citrus zest, some floral notes. There is a lot going on here.

T: The flavor profile, like the nose, runs the pallet trough the ringer. Hops add piny bitterness with fruit and floral notes. Sweet bitterness is the best description. A little alcohol burn is present on the back of the pallet halfway trough this bomber.

MF: The mouthfeel is full, and carbonation is almost perfect. This aids in the flavor really lingering on your pallet mmhmm.

D: Drinkability is excellent as well, I can barely imagine better.

Overall, I've had a rough day at work, and would like to thank Augustiner719 for the trade. I would definitely seek this brew out again, and wish I had another few behind it in the fridge.

Slightly hazed golden blond body. Generally I look for more of an orangish tint in a DIPA but the color could indicate good things to come (hopefully the crystal malt is not over done). Three finger off white head made up of loosely packed bubbles. Splotchy lacing left as the head recedes at a moderate clip, some rocky foam left floating atop for just a bit longer.

Hops dominate the nose. Grapefruit aroma is is plentiful, the strongest of the citrus aroma. Pineapple, orange followed by mango and subtle tropical fruit aromas are noticed as you work your way down. The malt lends a light breadiness found well underneath the hop aroma, certainly not the "pronounced caramel malt" base, maybe this will appear in the flavor.

The flavor begins much the way you would expect it following a sniffy sniff. The hops are strong, delivering a large dose of fresh citrus fruit, pith and light pinyness. As the beer warms the malt is allowed to break through the thick blanket of hops. The crystal malts are not over done but are certainly noticeable. I am picking up more of the residual sweetness with warmth, this is less to my likings. This beer definitely has a sweet spot regarding temperature. Too cold you lose a lot of the hops and general flavor for that matter, too warm there is a smidge too much sweetness.

Medium bodied beer with the carbonation being a bit livelier than I expected. The texture is smooth with a lot of flavor digging deep making for a long finish.

I think the best thing about this beer is the drinkability. No single attribute really stood out to me while enjoying this one. Once you take a look back at the beer as a whole, consider IBU's and ABV you can realize some of the beauty of this beer. The bitterness is not overwhelming, the alcohol is not hot, flavors are not offensive. This beer is better than my score but I simply cannot score it higher. Definitely one I would drink again and would recommend.
