Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

Dreadnaught is the answer to all of my American craft beer dreams. Based on the hop profile(s) I like, this one is perfectly made for my liking.
Three Floyds Brewing Company is known for their abundant use of hops and Dreadnaught is no different. air jordan 5 femmes I am sure this beer is dried hopped as the aroma immediately greeting my nose after the cap removal was a delightful sampling of what was to come. Citrus, peach, pine, and mango hop aromas gave me the feeling it was summer and I was on a beach soaking in the rays on my pasty face. The aroma in the glass was even more pleasing as it was stronger, bigger, and inviting. There was some sweetness to balance in both the aroma and taste with a citrus bitterness to the finish. I really didn’t notice the big alcohol level and, for me, that is a good thing. I don’t want a beer to wear it’s big ABV values on its collar. 10/10
I originally gave it a 9 because I just don’t like giving a beer a 10. In my mind that means it has no room for improvement. It is the pinnacle of American craft beer within the style. After sleeping on it, I am convinced that this is a perfect American Imperial IPA. Enjoy!
