22oz bottle poured into a snifter
no born on date but I believe this was picked up from the brewery approximately 3 weeks ago.  

Thanks to Hopsmatt for sending this one over in a trade. 

A: Pours a hazy apricot orange with 1.5 fingers width of sea foam white colored head which dissipates down at a fairly slow rate.  Leaves small patches of spotty lacing.  

S:  Lots of tropical fruit sweetness, with mango, apricot, and overripe banana.  A slight resinous aroma, and some booze, a significant tart characteristic is noted at one point.  Aroma is very unique for the style.  

T: Flavor is different from the aroma.  Resinous notes and big piney bitterness are the main players here, along with a significant sweet component that is quite unique and I cant even place.   The banana characters from the nose come out as well, which I don't think Ive ever picked up in a DIPA before.  Some grassy notes, and a fair amount of booze.  Interesting palate profile here.  

M/D: Carbonation is one the higher side of the spectrum, which I personally dont like, but it settles down as it warms.  On the fuller side of medium bodied with a somewhat syrupy mouthfeel.  ABV is kept in check very well and drinkability is very good.  

O:  Id say the best thing about this beer is how unique it is for the style, especially  the aroma and to a certain degree  the flavor as well.  Overall though, in a style that procudes a lot of home runs, this one is pretty middle of the road in my book, but I give it bonus points for its unique qualities.  I am glad I was able to try this, but in the future if I make an effort to obtain a FFF DIPA its most certainly going to be Dreadnaught.  Definitely worth trying though, if you are a fan of the style.
