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 a deep gold, slightly cloudy, with about two fingers of creamy white head, which lingered quite a while and left nice lacing. Aroma is a nice, big nose of hops; noted the peach. Taste is a nice blend of the malt sweetness and hops, again with notes of peach. Moderately carbonated, but too much so. A nice, full, mouth feel and a good drink for its big ABV.
