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

I was really looking forward to drinking this beer--I loved Dogfish Head's Positive Contact. With this one, I ended up pouring it down the sink. The lemon flavor was so strong it was like drinking Pledge. I couldn't even get through half a glass. Alas.
