Hellhound ~ Dogfish Head

Appearance: coppers and ambers under an off-white pithy head which fades into an equally off-white collar. Blotchy along the sides.

Nose: fresh lemon rind, both pith and outer skin. Biscuit malt in the back, melba underneath. Sweet essence of key lime rind. Fir trees. Candied ginger in the back middle – delectable and teasatory.

Palate: ginger, lemon, spice, and rind. Apple skins. Dried peaches underneath. Lemon rind and key lime linger in breath. Caramelized ginger slices. Spice tickles the breath. Lemon pepper. General dryness of melba along the sides. More lemon in the breath – like biting into a whole fresh lemon while taking a breath. Parched and drying. Homemade lemonade aged in fresh oak barrels.

Final Thoughts: delicious, divine, dry, and refreshing. The adult summer beverage.
