Dogfish Head Hellhound On My Ale (Double IPA)
I really need to get better about this updating thing, oof. Picked this up on recommendation from one of my supervisors, who is also responsible for ordering some of the beer for the store. He’s a huge IPA fan and said this was one of his all-time favorites, so naturally I had to give it a try (he has yet to steer me wrong.)
I’m not crazy about IPAs. I’ve said it before; I’ll say it again. There are a few rare ones that I like, and normally they’re low on the hop scale. I went into this knowing it was a double and there was a chance I might not like it. While it wasn’t my favorite, I’m definitely glad I tried it. It’s not a palate-wrecker (which I was happy about), and it’s got a very nice lemon finish to it. Probably won’t buy it again— $11.99 is a little steep for something I only sort of liked.
On a moderately related note, my beer budget is getting slashed, for better or worse, because I finally made the jump and moved out on my own. I have yet to buy real groceries, but about half of my fridge is filled with leftover beer I have to get through. Wish me luck.
