Dogfish Head Hellhound

 Dogfish Head has once again partnered up with Sony Music with the release of  "Hellhound On My Ale". Just as DFH did with the release of "Bitches Brew" to commemorate the anniversary re-release of the acclaimed Miles Davis album, they have released this 100 IBU, dry hopped ale to coincide with the release of Robert Johnson's "The Complete Original Masters Centennial Edition Box Set". This set is in celebration of  the blues master's 100th birthday. As legend has it the Mississippi Delta blues guitar player Robert Johnson sold his soul down at the crossroads in a midnight bargain with the devil that changed music forever.
  "Hellhound" is a  full bore hop ale that hits 10.0 ABV, 10.0 SRM in color, and dry-hopped with 100% centennial hops. To add another interesting twist DFH dug deep into Mr. Johnson's history vaults and  accentuated the citrus notes of the centennial hops with the addition of  lemon peel. One of  Robert Johnson’s mentor's was a Texas blues man named Blind "Lemon" Jefferson. With the limited release of "Hellhound" I'd say get it while you can. Should you find yourself having waited a bit too long, you can always wonder down to the "crossroads" and make a deal with a shady looking character with a pitch fork and horns. Cheers!
