Beer #104 Three Floyds Dreadnaught IPA

Three Floyds Dreadnaught IPA

Name: Dreadnaught IPA

Style: Imperial IPA

Brewery: Three Floyds Brewing Co.  website

Country: USA

Region: Munster, Indiana

ABV: 9.5% Abv

How served: 22oz capped bomber poured into a Duvel Tulip glass.          

My Overall Opinion: Amazing. 

I paired this beer with: A peach champagne sorbet. I was in Italy for a week and had pistachio gelato every day and was craving some more, but this was the closest thing I had to pistachio gelato in the house (they both start with “p” and are cold and creamy).  Anyway this was an amazingly great pairing!

Tasted on:  Monday May 3rd, 2010. 

Note:  This beer has a nice nose with a hint of mango and citrus. The taste was sweeter then I was expecting for a Double IPA,  I was prepared for a big hop “bite” but this was both sweet and bitter at the same time, if that is possible (like Hopslam).  This was an exceptional well balanced beer which I could drink all night long…well except that it is 9.5%abv, which by the way was very well hidden.   I need to obtain some more of this beauty.

On the Label:  same as from their website

From their website 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.
