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.

22oz bottle-pours a big tight foamy off white head and copper color. Aroma is nice grapefruit and lemon rind/pine hops. Tase is resin/grapefruit rind with some bitter, some herbal, medium malt. Then some tannins and alcohol come to the front, detracting. Thanks skoutis for trade with jwc215 and me. 3.3, at cellar temp 3.6

Bottle. [thanks for the extra, after4ever]
Pours a wonderful orange amber with a fine smallish, creamy, off-white head. Fair duration, leaves fine lacings. Aroma has lots of strawberry, grapefruit and pine. Light caramel. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour has a bit of ash, some caramel. Then lots of pine hops and general fruitiness (grapefruit, strawberry, apple, pear). Very dry throughout. Quite aggresive - and very nice!

hopdog (12083) - 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 (11755) - 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.

slowrunner77 (11289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
"this one is a different (and slightly better) recipe than the original Hop Henge. like the last review says...HUGE citrus and floral hops in the nose, and more in the flavor. A big, chewy beer. If it werent for a small overabundance of sweet malt, Id have graded it even higher. As it is, its the best "hoppy" product from Deschutes. Very enjoyable brew. Bitter finish, with a slightly sweet lingering aftertaste."
