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.

Bottle at home- pours clear golden with off white head of foam that settles to a cm ring. Nose is super fruity, tangerines, orange and rind along with sweet biscuity carastan malts and some earthy pine as well. Resinous fruity hop notes, juicy and somewhat thick bodied and long bitter finish with some abv heat. A little off balanced but pungent for sure. Hop heads rejoice though likely not sessionable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Best By 4/7/15", 9.5% ABV. Color is hazy golden yellow with a slightly orange head of about 1/2 finger. Smell has a strong grapefruit character with some pungent earth tones. Taste is bracingly bitter, lots of citrus peel with some savory cracker and cheese. Lots of really powerful hop flavors in this one. Tread lightly!

Quintessential Double IPA. Appearance is a decent size, slow to settle, thick, off-white head, lace, and a clear honey amber color. Aroma is hops, caramel malt, spice, grain. Flavor’s like aroma, has a slight sweetness, good tartness, and the proper bitterness for this kind of beer. Has a nice mouth filling feeling yet with just the right buzz from good carbonation for excellent body. Also delivers some alcohol warmth. A hop monster for sure, but a good monster.

Bottle. Pours clear dark golden with decent white head and lacing. Nose is tropical and citrus big time. Taste is big hops and sweet malts. Not much aftertaste. Delicious.

Bottle, this is a solid pale and citrus and pine IPA, probably Deschutes best IPA offering

Lots of hop presence, but not too bitter. Aroma is much more earthy/ grassy, not much citrus. Feels heavy. The abv is nicley masked, and not overly bitter at all. Very different from most IPA and DIPA’s that I have had.

tsadich (26) - Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Nice earthy hop smell, w little white foam head. A excellent hop front and not overly harsh hop finish. The finish is super smooth for an imperial IPA. It is right up there w enjoy by and a fresh double jack. Must buy and drink early when you see it. Great!

Piney, hoppy and bitter. ABV wonderfully ridden by dominant grapefruit and tangerine flavors. Great IPA.

3.8
UXO (1896) - CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is resiny pine, pithy citrus, tropical fruit, mild caramel malt. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky finish. (4/5) Another nice IPA (OK, DIPA) from Deschutes. Similar to Chasin’ Freshies, but heavier and more intense, with a bit more malt, and less fresh juicy citrus. The ABV is well integrated, apparent as a mild warming, but not unpleasant. Decent, if a little blunt - could use more Mosaic sharpness, and less malt. (15/20)
