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

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Deep and translucent orange color. Dense head with excellent retention and generous, sticky lacing.

Sweet malty aroma with a bitter, soapy hop edge.

Malt is present on the palate with a biscuit character but takes a back seat to the super aggressive, pungent hop arsenal dropping bombs on my taste buds. I do enjoy the lemon flavor. Finishes with a rough soap and herb aftertaste.

Dense, sticky body. Rough, grainy texture. Highly carbonated.

Not as good as I expected. Unbalanced due to excessive hops and a little rough around the edges.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A - light red orange body, almost no head to speak of

N - when fresh you can smell and taste the lemons but currently drinking a bottle that almost a year old and the lemon seems to have disappeared.

M - light

T - again, when fresh you can definitely taste the lemon which I love but with just about 11 months since bottled the lemon has dissappeared. Still a great hoppy bitter taste that goes down easy

O - when fresh I love this brew, 11 months past its not bad by any means I just miss the lemon.
