COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who knows what inspired the ancients to build Stonehenge--or what inspired us to build Hop Henge in its likeness. But build it we did, out of wrapped bales of whole-flower hops out on the brewery lawn. Like the rest of the Bond Street Series, Hop Henge highlights the creativity and curiousity of our brewers. Bolder than its English ancestors, with huge hops and a bitter finish, this IPA is no wallflower.

NOTE: This is the original version. In 2007 it was bumped up to an IIPA. See that entry here.

stevoj (2092) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Round from PreFunk. Almost perfect IPA. Beautiful fluffy head, meloow piney/citrusy nose, and some puckering tartness, with plenty lingering aftertaste. Truly wonderful.

Voodoo (304) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours a golden with a slight red/orange tinge and healthy white head. Aroma of citrus. Taste is slightly oily, thick mouthfeel.....bready maltiness, citrus and pine notes with mild bitter finish. A well done American IPA, nothing way over the top.

EtTuCthulhu (1032) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 8, 2013
This beer’s appearance is a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small white head, and the aroma smells like citrus hops and grapefruit. The taste is quite bitter and mildly sweet, which makes for a really pleasant balance, and the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish, and a sticky texture.

chicowv (455) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2013
22 oz bottle: pours bright orange with a light head and good lacing. Aroma is intense fruit with mango, pineapple and tangerine. Sweet with good bitter balance. Complex flavors of citrus, good malt balance, smooth. Hard to believe this is a 10 percent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Christpuncher (1117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2013
Really strong and flavorful ipa. Has a very fruity and bitter taste. Comes in a nice bomber bottle and has a strong aftertaste. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MikeJslc (741) - USA - APR 4, 2013
Deep gold, clear, off-white head. Aroma: piney-resiny hops, slight caramel note. Flavor: big malt backbone of grainy, toasty and caramel notes supports the hefty resiny-pine hop character.

10.4% IBV and a perfect experiment IPA? Sign me up. I'll be there. A great limited release I would recommend to any person interested in beer or not. So impressed by this brew. I'm going to try more of this brewery simply because this was great. I bought 6 bottles in 48 hours. Go get it now. Hello spring perfection. I will order a case to gift my new roommate to christen our new house. It's that good. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iPhone

EdInSaltLake (628) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Tropical fruit, berry, sweet malty aroma. Strong hoppy flavor: Tropical, tangerine, nectarine, floral, a little herbal. Fruity candy aftertaste. Light caramel malt flavor. Could be a little drier... but really nice flavor. Not super heavy; but enough to keep the hoppy goodness on the tongue for a while. Can’t taste any of the 10+ percent ABV. ("Best by": 5/31/13)

Pours light amber with white head out if bottle. Very hoppy smell and taste with a smooth finish. Great beer for the hop heads! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
