Three Floyds Dreadnaught
Three Floyds Dreadnaught on draft on a recent trip. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of grapefruit, tangerine, hop oils, resin, and orange. The taste is bitter and dry with a large citrus profile comprised of orange, tangerine, and plenty of grapefruit. There is an oily and resiny finish that lingers for a while. The alcohol content is 9.5% ABV. This is an excellent Imperial IPA that has all the right citrus flavors and hop oils. I’ve had this beer in a bottle before, but having it fresh on draft was unbeatable. It really lingered for a while with the oils, and it was an excellent example of a bitter hop bomb.
