COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Henge Experimental IPA is our annual exercise in IBU escalation. An outrageous amount of Centennial and Cascade hops are added to each barrel, with a heavy dry-hop presence as well. It is dense and muscular, with a blend of crystal, pale and carastan malts creating an overall biscuity characteristic. It’s all hop, no apologies.

light copper color, clear, light carbonation, off-white head. very little lacing. aroma is mostly citrus with some pine notes and an herbal quality. flavor is light to moderate caramel, with plenty of pine and some grapefruit. hops obviously dominate, but there is enough malt to stand up to it. body is medium and there is a nice long bitter finish. pretty darn good.

Wow. This is FANTASTIC! I was expecting a total in your face hop bomb, bit didn’t get it. This is an awesome high octane IPA with great balance for a super hopped beer.

22 oz bomber. Pours a hazy orange with a large 2-finger head with good retention and leaves lots of lacing. Man, you can smell this one across the room! Huge hop aroma of citrus (orange and grapefruit), dank malts, and biscuits. Taste is very strong and more earthy tasting hops than citrus. But there is also a good citrus taste, heavy dank malts, pine, and biscuits. Dry finish of citrus and malts. Excellent palate with a medium body, somewhat oily texture, average carbonation. Very good IPA. Different and stands out.

maneliquor (3065) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours bright orange with a dense white cap. Nose is the goods - big grapefruit, dank, quite resinous and very tropical. Taste is big grapefruit, pine, tropical fruits and heavy zest. It has that familiar sticky sweet toffee back bone. Probably not completely fresh but tastes good either way. Nice beer

bmerz (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Draught at Thai Me Up. Pours with a fantastic soft off white long lasting head. Aroma is fairly moderate of floral and fresh hop goodness with pale malts in the background. Flavor is full blast or caramel sweetness, fresh grapefruit pith, hop acids, and deep cedar. The feel is so full frothy, fresh, with a deep subtly biting bitterness taking a taking a long, long ride. Absolutely top notch hop bomb / fix.

Pint at Devil’s Advocate. A golden ale that sports little to no head. A refreshing aroma with hops prevalent. A definite hop taste with citrus undertones. Kind of has some double IPA elements but doesn’t commit to that style. I enjoy it. I would hop at least a henge to taste it again.
