Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

58 IBU

From notes on 12/10/13

Nice orange brown cloudy pour. Mostly white, thick head. Has a hoppy smell like most centennial IPAs, but there is a strong aroma of lemon. Unique taste. Again, like your typical IIPA with centennial hops, buy very very citrusy from the lemon. Never had so much lemon flavor in a beer. this beer is no where close to as smooth as 90 minute. Much harsher. Still very good. Another greatly unique beer from Dogfish Head. Had the Midas Touch earlier, which was very different. Great job to them creating different tasting brews.

A: hazy; deep bronze; 1 finger pillowy, off white head that receded slowly to a thick cap; nice lacing;

S: lemon Pledge;

T: all lemon up front; malt peeks through mid-palate, but the lemon is still the star; finish is moderately bitter with the lemon still holding sway;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation:

O: I understood going in that this was brewed with lemon. Still, I didn't expect the lemon to be so dominant. For my taste, I would have liked a little more balance.
