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.

Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours golden, with small white head. Aroma is of hops, pine. Very refreshing aroma. Great flavor, lots of hops, citrus, pine, with some malt and earthy notes too. A great D.I.P.A, definitely a must try for fans of the style.

Slubgob (313) - West Hartford, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Best by June 12th, drank October 16th. So, ahh, aged? Bomber into wine glass. Apricot color, just off white head. Maple in the nose? With the expected hops. In the mouth, moderate hoops, more maple and fruit. Finishes a bit sticky. Would be curious what a fresh bottle would be like, but its pretty enjoyable as its.

Very hazy gold beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is airy with reasonable fine carbonation. Fluffy malts, some creamy sweetness. Spicy hop, cooling pine and ripe citrus. A little tropical fruits. Smooth finish. A little ripe. Past its best by date by a few months. Not that that stopped Total Wines selling it in the state! Grrr! Overall its held up well.

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.

ctipping (1489) - Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2015
22 oz. bottled poured into a snifter. Amber colored. White head that lingers a bit and then leaves healthy lacing. Hop dominated at first with citrus and some pine, but the sweetness of the malts come through very strongly. Also, it smells quite boozy for 9%. The taste is boozy too, but its not overwhelming. Again, hops for sure. Great hop flavor, but the malts are very sweet. Lots of unfermented sugars in this guy. Caramel from the malts with some vanilla, but its just too sweet. Strong carbonation at first, but it manages to feel creamy in the finish. Strong alcohol presence and a syrupy mouthfeel. Good, but very sweet.

markducommun (955) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Lightly clouded golden orange with a whitish-tan head. Darker citrus notes, resin, muted honey, light floral. Quite bitter, solid biscuity malt backbone. Fairly oily medium body, long lingering bitter finish. Somewhat alcoholic. Acidic. Really awesome.

jennajlover (135) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Nothing small from this brew. Extreme hop aroma of cascade hops. Very recognizable. Flavor of mild crystal malts and more big buttering hops. Alcohol lightly present. Finishes of fresh hops, lie a harvest ale hop brew.

Bomber shared by Big Lou. Malty, slight hop aroma. More hops in the taste, some floral and citrus with dry finish. Decent IPA.

kevinator (1888) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Great hop aroma of pine and floral. Pretty copper color with a nice head. Weight to the palate. Bold flavors up front with most being hops that were harsh yet balanced with a caramel background. Alcohol well-hidden.
