Dogfish Head Hellhound On My Ale


Hellhound On My Ale is Dogfish Head Brewery’s tribute to legendary blues man, Robert Johnson.  What they’ve come up with is a huge hop bomb that reminds me of an Imperial IPA, west-coast style.  The nose is citrusy with pine.  The body is heavy, with tons of grapefruit and more pine, and the lemon they added to the brew really starts to come into it’s own.  The finish is lemony and and crisp, with one last hard hit of pine right at the end.   This is a very solid Imperial IPA, and if you’re you’re into big hops, you should try to find a bottle.

I give it a 4.6 out of 5.
