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.

5/5  rDev +13.1%

A: Dark orange with a big head that leaves some lacing. Definitely big alcohol legs going on.

S: WOW! this smell blew me out of the water. Big and juicy. Mango that just keeps going and going. Big tropical fruit, lots of pineapple, burnt orange and some lemon citrus. There is a caramel malt in the background here and a touch of pine but man, the mango just shines!!

T: The hops on this beer are amazing. Once again at the front to f the tongue mango shows up, grabs hold and doesnt let go. Then come the citrus, lemon, burnt caramel orange and pineapple. Towards the middle of the mouth you get a touch of malty sweetness but that is destroyed by the piney, resin hop bitterness at the end. And this finish keeps going and going and makes you crave more. It's pretty juicy. This is definitely a hop forward beer but the hops are all balanced out nicely together.

M: Syrupy, almost full bodied with just enough carbonation. This is very refreshing and surprisingly easy drinking. more please!

O: This was one of my first "religious" beer experiences back in the day and it only gets better every time i have it. The hops shine and it is just bursting with flavor. Probably my favorite beer! /99
