American Double / Imperial IPA |  10.00% ABV

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

3.7/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance has a clear honey amber color to it. Nice egg shell white head. Very nice lacing.

Aroma is ok. Kinda hoppy. Could use some more citrus hops with that lemon. Kinda malty aroma too.

Taste is ok. Nice and hoppy but could use some more hop flavor. Slight maltyness and a hint of lemon but I don't know if I would have been able to pick it out with out knowing it was in there.

Mouthfeel is decent. Could be a bit more dry. Good medium carb though.

Overall a tasty brew but nothing amazing. If you see it try it but it's not worth seeking out.

3.63/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a burnt orange with opacity and a finger of fluffy white head. Good lacing and tightly formed bubbles.

Lemongrass, pine, juicy hop aroma. Lemon sticks out the most. Slight detection of a sweet malt here. Sourish smelling hops.

Hops hit first. Not too hard, but instantly gives way to lemon peel. Insane amount of lemon. Sour tartness derived from it. They're not kidding when they say this is brewed with lemons. It is the most prevalent note. Very tart.

Low carbonation, medium body, lemony aftertaste that sours out.

Overall this is pretty good. Nothing great but worth a try. Wouldn't seek this out but I'm glad I tried it.
