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. Its all hop, no apologies.

Dogbrick (11857) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2008
Sample at Tenaya Creek in Las Vegas. The beer pours a clear orange-amber color with a wispy white head that diminishes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Earthy malt, fruit and hops in the nose. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with fresh fruity hops, malt and caramel flavors. The finish is hoppy with lingering citrus and earthy malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

hopdog (11774) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2009
22oz bottle. Poured a medium and very slightly hazy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Some lacing was left on the glass as the head diminished. Aromas of fruitiness, citrus, floral, caramel, and pine. Tastes of pine, citrus, lighter fruitiness (vs. the aromas), floral, and caramel. The floralness came out more and more as I drank and enjoyed this one. I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

22oz bottle share courtesy of TomDecapolis. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of orange peels, some caramel, citrus, and a little earthy. Tastes of citrus, pine, and caramel. Medium bitter with only a trace of a malt balance. Struck me to be more of an IPA vs. an IIPA.

Sammy (11387) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2010
Golden yellow, 3 months past expiration but only received it in last few months. Carbonation bubbles. Almost a half inch of white foam bubbly head. Lacey, hop aromas are hard to distinguish. Taste held together, initially good hoppiness, palate filler not a shredder. Creamy above average mouthfeel.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a small creamy off white head that leaves behind good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is very hoppy with cascade, pine and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop and alcohol in a very bitter finish. A very good double IPA from Deschutes.
