Dogfish Hellhound On My Ale
From Dogfish – 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.
Dogfish Head – Dogfish Hellhound On My Ale – On tap poured into a tulip – 10% abv.
Appearance: Pours a semi cloudy amber orange with a thin creamy film of white. Within the body, you will see visible rising bubbles.
Aroma: Big peach and even bigger rubbing alcohol.
Taste: Bitter pungent hops, earthy yeast, dry malt. Tropical fruits. Finishes with lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Thin for a 10 %’r with modest bubbles.
Overall: It was too hot for my liking, but I appreciate how dry and hoppy it was. Probably would be much more pleasant in a month.
