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

Poured from 22oz bomber. Nice 1" head, amber tone.

Smell is that of Three Floyds. Orange and hops from the go. Citrus aroma is fresh and anticipated.

Carbonation is evident for this well bodied IPA.
Lots of alcohol in this FFF brew, but you don't notice it due to the smoothness! And it is smooth!

Drinkability is wonderful. Hop bite from the start. Cities and did I mention smooth!

Love this one!

This pours a nice copper/orange color with a nice 2 finger width fluffy white head that leaves behind nice lacing. This first smell I get is tropical fruits like mango and pineapple, then some citrus from grapefruit and a little piney aroma. The grapefruit comes through on the taste more that the mango/pineapple that I was getting so strong from the smell, the piney flavor is also there but a little subdued compared to the other flavors. There is also a nice sweetness that complements the bitterness. The mouthfeel is in the middle compared to others in the style not nothing really stands out, the carbonation is good. Overall this is a great beer I don't buy a lot of bottles of this for personal consumption but when on draft I do tend to get this a lot compared to other DIPA that Indiana has to offer.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. Unsure about bottled date, bought it yesterday at my local store.

A- Pours a nice dark orange-amber with a finger and a half worth of head that sticks around for awhile.

S- All hops in the aroma. I get lots of citrusy fruits overall- orange, mango, peach.

T- Starts off smooth with a nice hop bite. Hops are mostly of citrus with some slight pine notes. The finish is of a hint of caramel malts.

M- Light and easily drinkable for such a higher ABV. Nicely carbonated, hop bitterness is great.

Dreadnaught is an awesome Imperial IPA. After being able to walk into any decent bottle shop around me and buy this for years, its getting harder for me to find. Dreadnaught is one of my go-to’s if I’m looking for a big IIPA.

Poured from a 22oz bottle to a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Color: A cloudy orange with an off white head.

Smell: Peach and mango come through at first. followed by great earthy hops and orange.

Taste: Same as the aroma. Beautiful.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, smooth with a light dryness on the palate.

Overall: A big citrus aroma and taste. Full bodied and very well balanced. Three Floyds is always doind brews right. Cheers.
