Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jsanford on 03-15-2011

Hellhound is a super-hoppy ale that hits 100 IBUs in the brewhouse and 10% ABV. It's dry-hopped with 100% Centennial hops at a rate of 100 kilos per 100 barrel brew-length. Can you tell we're stoked for this mighty musical centennial?

To accentuate and magnify the citrusy notes of the Centennial hops (and as a shoutout to Robert Johnson's mentor Blind Lemon Jefferson), we add dried lemon peel and flesh to the whirlpool.

Picked up in Vegas. Great nose. Very citrus heavy. Light in the mouth.

Look: Poured into a snifter, it pours with a HUGE fluffy head which retains for a long while. Hazy and amber in color.

Smell: It's like hoppy lemonade. I really can't describe it any other way. Very sweet smelling.

Taste: Hoppy up front with a nice fade to lemon sweetness.

Feel: Creamy texture, medium feel. Very good!

Overall: This may be the best IPA I've ever had. Then again, I'm a stout guy.
