I'll do 159. Maybe when mine is done we can meet halfway, swap beers and see how they are.

Mine is in the keg carbing now. It should be ready for a serious taste this weekend. The tastings so far seem to back up what you would expect from a 160* mash; sweet and a bit chewy. It's been a while since I've had the real deal, but I think it's close. Maybe I can work a trade out, as finding Dreadnaught in central Ohio is not an easy task.

For what it's worth, I took a small amount (3 bottles worth) and threw it on some Jack Daniels chips. Completely un-scientific, but preliminary results are excellent! This should also be ready for a tasting this weekend. I have high hopes!

Mine turned out pretty solid. It has a nice body from mashing a bit high @ 156. I wish I would have went back and not used the ESB yeast. Just not a fan of the particular yeast as this is my second brew with this strain.

Dreadnaught is one of my top 3 IIPA's. I've brewed 2 batches of a recipe I formulated that was VERY similar to this.
The only differences were that I:
- used equal amounts of Melonoidin and Crystal 10L (about 4-5% of the total grain bill each)
- mashed at 156F
- and my hops were much different (Warrior, Columbus, Citra (BK & DH), Cascade (BK & DH), to the tune of 166 IBU )
- used WLP007 with a starter

I calculated 8.7%ABV, but I think it was a bit higher than that. It was on the sweet side, which I actually really liked, but I may try a lower mash temp next time, and maybe some sugar to dry it out more and see how it compares.
The SRM was probably around 7-9 I think, aroma was awesome, the mouth feel had a really nice body, and the taste was amazing. This brew is a few of my friends favorite IIPA, and mine as well.

I A/B'd this with Dreadnaught, and it was very close. Dreadnaught won on Appearance and Taste (barely), but this brew won on Aroma, and Mouthfeel.
