yup, that’s a lemon .. . Pours a medium amber, medium foam, light clasping lacing .. . floral notes, some citrus and of course lemon .. . an ok beer, a bit muddled and under whelming .. . another DFH that seems intriguing but never lives up to how good it sounds .. . Well they should, those filthy buggers. They go from port to port.

Bottle from Wine101. Amber pour. A little darker than I was expecting. Aroma was nice lemon, citrus, toffee, and some floral notes. After the lovely complex aroma this one fell flat for me. mediocre at best IIPA

Capped 750mL bottle. Bottled on 2011. Amber color, nice lacing from a thin white head. The nose is mostly hops, loads of resin & citrus. A touch of lemongrass and caramel malt sugars. Flavor of sweet malts, loads of bitter hops, some pine. Finishes with a palate busting bitterness, lingering form the flavor. Then there is an odd citric acid left behind. I do not detect lemons at all, although the acidity is there, ABV is very well hidden. Smooth body, easy to drink. Overall impression, a citric acidic 90 Minute, minus the vanilla.

The aroma is powerful hops with pine citrus and some soap. The malt is very sweet and the alcohol is strong. The appearance is orange gold with a large head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a good beer all around but I am disappointed that I don’t really get much lemon here.

This beer has a strong hoppy presence with lots hops and malt. The bitterness is the dominate flavor with grass and pine. Palate is not that heavy. Get a slight soapy taste at the end. Still it’s a winner

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Yet another outstanding super-hoppy beer from the great folks at DFH. It wasn’t even on the beer menu at the Rehoboth pub, but thanks to my awesome server, Jeanine, I was able to enjoy a snifter of this awesome IIPA. The Hellhound poured a dark orange color with a decent-sized off-white head. The head left a nice amount of thick but silky lacing around the glass. The nose featured a nicely-balanced nose, with just enough malt, bready and earthy tones to compliment the citrusy and piney hops. The body was full, very drinkable and super hoppy. But just as in the nose, the flavors were balanced perfectly, too. I got plenty of prickly and spicy hops, along with just the right amount of caramel malt, earth and rye bread. The finish was spicy, yet balanced and delicious. It’s obvious that DFH has something going on, especially with the IPAs. I don’t need to announce that, because everybody already knows. But sometimes you just have to state the obvious.

Very nice. Looked like caramel. Citrusy aroma with some cotton candy. Big piney opening, bit of a lemony note, then finishing dry and bitter. Not too hard in mouth- just a little tickle at the tip of the tongue.

750 mL bottle. Hazy copper pour with a smallish bubbly white head. Aroma and flavor both hold definite malt balance to a bitter lemony hop profile. Might be a touch oxidized but it still worked OK. Ok, nothing great.

26 July 2011, tap at the brewpub. hazy orange with slight lacing. nose is sugary alcohol and lemony hops. hops are astringent but not hugely aggressive. full body and fizzy. really really similar to 120min but not quite as sweet and hops are more astringent. maybe a bit more lemon but not too much. very nice!
