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.

VinegarStroke (414) - Napa, California, USA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle: Clear, light copper with thick head and great lace. Very lifted hoppy aroma. Slightly green but floral. Not really piney. Rich dry to off dry palate thats not sour but very bitter. Dense and long. Loads of hops on the palate but really malt driven. Great flavor and weight. A massive beer. Aromas of a West Coast IPA but the palate shows a hint of the East Coast IPA. Wonderful beer.

04.07.15 best by date. Poured from a bomber into a pub glass on 02.01.15. A: Citrus, bready malt, and maybe honey malt. A: 1 finger head that stays. See through dark orange body. Bubbles wash up nicely when pouring. T: Pineapple and candied tropical fruit dominate. Orange, slight honey on the back end, pine, and vomit are subtle. P: Oily and smooth. Thick for an IPA. O: The oily mouthfeel and the taste werent that great. I drain poured it when I got sick of it.

Big citrus aroma, nice floral undertones. Flavor is crisp clean malt an big hops. Finish is clean. Batches 7 and 8 have really gotten great, the corseted batches I thought werent up to snuff base on the IPA version bit 7 and 8 have surpassed the original.
Earlier Rating: 7/7/2009 Total Score: 3.8
A nice copper pour with a 1mm white "head". Citrus and floral hop aroma dominate. Flavor is citrus and enough malt balance. Tons of hop flavor and just enough bitterness.

Grapefruit aroma - but not overwhelming. Hazy orange color, very inviting. I like the balance between the malt and the hops - good stuff. Overall, I wouldnt turn it down. Good beer.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Bottle thanks to bmartin08 poured a hazed amber/orange color with a nice off white head. The aroma was musty hops, heavy caramel and alcohol. Flavor was heavy caramel followed by hop bitterness and a sweet hoppy finish. Overall an ok double IPA with some BW character.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2007
pours a nice copper brown - slight aroma of citrus and floral hops - excellent caramelish malt flavor balances well with the almost over the top hops and the high alcohol warming. A most excellent beer for the style. Does a good job of not becoming an over-the-top cliche (as are many overhopped american beers).

Yum. So fresh! You cant really taste the alcohol and its not super bitter. Its very balanced but with a nice fresh crisp hoppiness to it. I like it a lot.

I really solid and lovable DIPA. The aroma is citrus and alot of it. Pours a beautiful vibrant orange with a white lacy head. The taste is everything you want in a DIPA. Nothing special but everything great. A straight forward beer. There isnt a way to not like it. great balance, great maltiness.
