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.

Interesting, tasty brew. Served at a good temperature with a nice, off-white, foamy head and some lace. Color is a clear honey amber. Aroma is a fecund malt hop leafy musty, Flavor’s like nose with a bit of sweet tucked in and has a 50/50 pine to grapefruit dominance along with a nice carbonic tang. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, long, and relatively drinkable.

Bottle: pours cloudy caramel brown with off white frothy head. Nose is extremely fruity. Apricot, grapefruit hop bitterness with lots of resinous notes. Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really loved this one. It was high alcohol but not super noticeable to me. On the hoppy bitter side but I like bitter beers. Def noticed a orange in it. One of my new favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 Appearance of beer on tap is very flat. Overall, a very bitty/hoppy beer. Not sure there’s anything in here that makes it unique to others I have tried, but the high alcohol content is not noticeable.

Pours golden with a nice off white head. Lots of piney hops with hints of grapefruit and citrus. Flavor is very nice. Has a nice bitter finish. Pretty good overall.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Pours orangy copper with off-white head. Nose is piney hops, tangerine, black pepper. Tastes semi-sweet, hoppy, resiny, rich and complex, with tangerine and peppery notes matched by the caramel malt at the finish.

Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average to large frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex floral earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. A very good brew that exceeded my expectations.

Rated it under the wrong one way back in 2007 as I remembered this label. Excited to go try the Experimental version in the store now! Creamy and hoppy aroma. The flavor has a great hop bite. Really sustains with a nice hoppy flavor. My kind of beer.

On tap. A great orange color with a white head and lots of lacing. A great fruit nose, with orange peel and lemon and a bit of pine. The flavor has strong, almost sweet hops up front, with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel and bittersweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like oranges and apricot nuances. Pours a bright golden orange with a slight opaqueness. Slight foam head with nice carbonation. Taste is punch in the mouth strong. Hops are very bitter with fruit of the aroma coming in at the end. Hops have nice balance with the malt and slight booziness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
