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

Gotta say....love the artwork.

Huge white foam with a nice bright amber/copper colored ale.

Aroma has a lot of malt present with light lemon whiffs in the background. Wishing for more.

Taste was pretty good. I am getting more of the lemon on the swallow with nice hoppiness playing around with the malt.

Good amount of carbonation on each swallow, bit not overly.

Overall I was intrigued by the artwork and my man-love for DFH. Unfortunately I was not totally impressed with this offering. I was hoping for more hops and zest but was met with a bigger dose of malt. The lemons didn't make that much of an appearance to the party either. I did like reading the label though.
