Bottle. [thanks for the extra, after4ever]hopdog (12479) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2009
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!
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.jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2009

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.
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 3.6Camons (12317) - Hasselager, DENMARK - APR 12, 2011

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. Pinball (12063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2010
cloudy orange, smooth white head.
aroma is nice flowery and piny hoppy, faint sweet malty below that.
flavor is bitter flowery, sweet malty, quite bitter actually. more english bitter than pine and grapefruit. slowrunner77 (11930) - 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 weren’t for a small overabundance of sweet malt, I’d have graded it even higher. As it is, it’s the best "hoppy" product from Deschutes. Very enjoyable brew. Bitter finish, with a slightly sweet lingering aftertaste." madsberg (11762) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2010
