A - Orange pour with a white foam that has lively carbonation. Cloudy look to it. Serious sticky lacing on the glass.

S - Scent of fresh tangerines and citra hops. Very fresh and crisp scent. The overall hop profile is dominant. Unlike the typical west coast variety thereis no pine scent but rather a more floral smell.

T - Blend of citrus and hops. This is a DIPA lovers dream because of the complexity and depth of fresh hoppy goodness. Finish is not as bitter as one might expect. The tartness of orange and tangerine balances this to a level of excellence.

M - the defining characteristic of Dreadnaught is in its drinkability. So smooth it is insane, masking of a high ABV, and redices the bitterness to a very nice level. I'm impressed.

O - I brought a bombert of this back to NY from Chicago and the tasting group loved it. 3F's is deserving of the hype with this beer. Right there with Pliny, and just as hard for me to get again.
