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.

As you pour you can smell the bready malt and fruity, citrusy hops. It pours hazy amber with a 1” finely bubbled foam cap. This medium full bodied beer exhibits very fine soft carbonation that produces an exceptional creaminess that leaves thick lace. The surprisingly smooth palate starts with a creamy malty sweetness and then some yeast driven light fruits play with the tropical citrusy hop fruits and then the flavors dissolve into a prolonged citrus rind grapefruit bitterness that lingers. The brewer achieves a perfect balance between the big alcohol and the layers of malt and hop flavors.
