COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2011 marks the 100th birthday of Mississippi Delta bluesman Robert Johnson who, according to legend, sold his soul down at the crossroads in a midnight bargain and changed music forever. Working again with our friends at Sony Legacy (yup, the same folks we did our Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew with), Dogfish Head pays tribute to this blues legend by gettin the hellhounds off his trail and into this finely-crafted ale. Hellhound is a super-hoppy ale that hits 100 IBUs in the brewhouse, 10.0 ABV, 10.0 SRM in color, and dry-hopped with 100% centennial hops at a rate of 100 kilos per 100 barrel brew-length. Can you tell we at Dogfish are stoked for this mighty musical centennial? To accentuate and magnify the citrusy notes of the centennial hops (and as a shout out to Robert Johnsons mentor Blind Lemon Jefferson) we add dried lemon peel and flesh to the whirlpool.

Beautiful Clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Amazing citrus aroma and taste of orange lemon and grapefruit with an exceptionally well balanced bitterness against the sweet caramel and candied lemon peel flavors. Alcohol un-noticeable minus some slight warmth on the back end. Nice creamy palate that accentuates the citrus flavors and hints at vanilla. This is as close to perfection as IPAs get!

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 One of my favorite beers. Great mouth feel, good complexity. It does have a touch of sweetness at the end, but to me that just makes it very balanced. If you can find it, buy it. 05/04/13 had to update.. drinking this again..what a great beer! Wish I could afford to drink it more often! Super smooth IPA. Plenty of flavor! Dogfish Head rocks!
