This was from a Growler poured in 10/23/11

This poured a color that slightly reminds you of apple juice, with a nice 2 finger thick frothy head, it doesn't disappoint in it's looks. The smell of fresh reisiny hops errupts upon opening and continues to flow from the glass. I had very citrusy notes at first then a strong pine note with small sweet malt hints at the end. The taste was no let down in it's follow up I the nose, it had all the same components as the smell from oily hop presence to the citrusy notes, the malt bill in this is nice and medium bodied and holds up to the hops but doesn't take away from them at all. The mouthfeel is nice and lively, good carbonation and a nice dry finish that makes one long for another sip. Overall id say if you can get a good deal on a grolwer of it's amazing, if you have never tried it, it's worth the price of a fresh bomber, but on any type of regular basis, it's too pricey like most 3 Floyds beers, drinkability is amazing, one that if given enough time a Growler would be awesome to finish in one sitting.

Brought up the river from my brother Hopapocalypse...anybody else out there been trying to get Three Floyd's in Ohio and unable to get it. Well, my bro delivered with the goods and let me in on the place carrying their stuff. He surprised me with a Broodoo to share and a 3F's Dreadnaught, althought we weren't able to make it to their Annivesary party we were still having a fine time reconnecting this one and sharing it. Pours a slightly hazed peach glowing amber with a bright orange highlighted body, head is fine whitevery thick and well formed with the fresh wet hop oils making so much sense. Aroma is full of citrus a touch of bubblegum and booming with tropical fruit mango/pineapple to be exact super hoppy aromatics coming out. Flavor has fresh hops exploding with vinous herbal citrius and tropical fruit notes, again a nice sugary coated malt presence joins the party to balance out the raw wet hop profile. Big bone dry bitter hop finish is great, the kind of hops I whole heartedly enjoy. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slick hop oil texture gliding across the palate with each swig, finishes with a clean citric hop bitterness. Overall an excellent harvest and definitely one of my favorites out of the gate really good drinking beer as long as your splitting 22's with good company.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: cloudy, orange/peach color. Almost looks like a lighter version of apply cider. Solid 2 finger foam that settles into a light ring with full surface coverage. Strong lacing retains its shape on the glass.

S: big whiff of citrus and piney hops smacked me in the face right off the bat and mellows into a smooth hop aroma with hints of orange and honey. As it warms, I get a nice malt backbone, though I can't quite put my finger on the exact malt. My initial thought was that of sourdough bread, but that's not quite it. Definitely a sweetness in the malt aroma, but not quite caramel.

T: citrus hops, honey, lemon, and orange, with just a hint of pine. Some sweet malt mixes in with the bitterness of the hops- very well balanced. The hop bitterness really lingers throughout.

M: medium bodied and very smooth. Oily hops coat the tongue with a subtle acidity akin to OJ. Perfect carbonation adds just the right amount of fizzy tingle on the front of the tongue and roof of the mouth.

D: Another outstanding brew from Three Floyds. Hoppy, well-balanced, well carbonated, overall just a great beer. I wish I had a few more bottles, I'd crack open another without hesitation.
