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.

Tmoney99 (10585) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle shared with shigadeyo. Pours a clear dark copper with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy complex hoppy citrus and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Heavy hoppy bittersweet flavor with a good bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Very good brew to share with a freind.

Koelschtrinker (10515) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Intensiver Hopfenantrunk, der sich im Mittelteil steigert. Sehr aromatischer Hopfenanteil, inklusive Hefearomen. Es gesellt sich eine Bananenote hinzu, die sich auf gleicher Höhe mit der Herbe befindet. Aromatisch ist auch der Abgang, in dem der Hopfen grasig-fruchtige Noten vorlegt. Ein aromatisches und starkes, dennoch weiches IPA! 11/12/12/13/13/12

Courtesy of After4ever/Tom - thank you for this nice beer. It’s dark amber with a creamy, huge head and the aroma has loads of citrus, pine, mango and caramel. The flavour is nice with notes of slightly sweet citrus-fruits, mango, pine and a grape-like bitterness wrapped in smooth caramel - nice!! 2367

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2012 Bottle… mgumby10’s & hopscotch’s WtFFfFDotF Throwdown … Clear burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic, small, tight retention. Caramel, citric, earthy aroma – grapefruit, biscuit, black tea and pine. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and laid-back carbonation. Big caramel and biscuit malt backbone lends plenty of support to the nice, earthy, hop bitterness. Raspy, moderately bitter, dry finish.

Earlier Rating: 3/7/2007 Total Score: 3.6
Bottle...O-Town Throwdown... Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The aroma delivers notes of black tea, caramel, cotton candy, tropical fruit and mild grapefruit. The flavor is sweet toffee balanced decently by bitter notes of black tea and grapefruit rind. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. Thanks to Crosling for sending the bottle our way!
