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

I love Dogfish Head so much! Another winner! Pours a copper to golden with a ceeamy lace. Aroma reminds me of earthly blends including grassy tones. This might sound weird, but I also detect a soapy fragrance that is quite pleasant.Taste is quite malty, sweet and fruity. I do not detect lemon as the bottle advertises; rather more of an orange finish. I also notice that this is less hoppy than your average double IPA. Feel is creamy, medium to full bodied and lightly carbonated. Overall an excellent job by possibly my favorite brewery in America!
