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.

Draft - Floral mellow earthy hops. Cloudy orange with a thin head. Well rounded strong hop flavours, pine and perfume. Rich body and deceptively smooth for the alcohol. Brilliant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle-pours a big tight foamy off white head and copper color. Aroma is nice grapefruit and lemon rind/pine hops. Tase is resin/grapefruit rind with some bitter, some herbal, medium malt. Then some tannins and alcohol come to the front, detracting. Thanks skoutis for trade with jwc215 and me. 3.3, at cellar temp 3.6

Pours a wonderful orange amber with a fine smallish, creamy, off-white head. Fair duration, leaves fine lacings. Aroma has lots of strawberry, grapefruit and pine. Light caramel. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour has a bit of ash, some caramel. Then lots of pine hops and general fruitiness (grapefruit, strawberry, apple, pear). Very dry throughout. Quite aggresive - and very nice!
