Our latest Bond Street Series brew, Hop Henge, got bumped up to Imperial status this year. With a few more IBUís than last yearís version, this IPA has a monumental amount of hops coming in just under the century mark for IBUís.
2010 vintage - 9.0% abv
Two and one half pounds of Centennial, Cascade, and Northern Brewer hops are added, per beer barrel, and another half pound is used in the dry hopping process giving Hop Henge a whopping 95 IBU rate. A hearty malt bill, consisting of Crystal, Pale and Carastan malts, creates a biscuity note while building a dense base supporting the mammoth hop presence.
The brewer markets this same or near-same product by more than one names. This can be the result of a brewer distributing this beer under different names in different countries, or the brewer simply changing the name, but not the recipe at different points in time.
