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

Poured into my Duvel Tulip, two to three fingers white head.

Smell is a hoppy citrus, very floral.

Taste is deceivingly smooth. Pretty bitter, not much citrus zest to speak of. Lots of hop presence.

Bit of a chalky after taste. Big, big mouthfeel.

Interesting, but not worth the price.

Got this beer at discounted price at local store ($9 ish). Pours neat and with almost no head. Very subtle lemon on nose, but definitely you can taste lemon. Well balanced on overall mouthfeel. Hops and alcohol in the aftertaste.

Definitely worth trying once.
