COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who knows what inspired the ancients to build Stonehenge--or what inspired us to build Hop Henge in its likeness. But build it we did, out of wrapped bales of whole-flower hops out on the brewery lawn. Like the rest of the Bond Street Series, Hop Henge highlights the creativity and curiousity of our brewers. Bolder than its English ancestors, with huge hops and a bitter finish, this IPA is no wallflower.

NOTE: This is the original version. In 2007 it was bumped up to an IIPA. See that entry <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/deschutes-hop-henge-imperial-ipa/68396/>here.

Murky gold, with a fluffy white head. Aroma is lost to my stuffed sinuses. Taste is pineapple/tropical fruit and citrus hops, with a great balanced sweetness. That combines to make this seem "juicy", which I love. Well carbonated, but not in a bubbles popping-off-in-your-mouth way, but in a "fluffy" kind of way (it’s all I can think of right now). Seems to lean more toward a DIPA than a regular IPA. Very, very good, and really easy to drink.

9.5% and it smells like it. Orange marmalade nose, candied orange, mint. Delicately balanced, big and smooth. No alcohol taste that you get from the nose. Melon and tropical fruits. Man this is good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(I remember this being closer to 8% but lower than the next version). Anyway...not a standout for a double IPa THOUGH STILL quite nice. huge body and great mouthfeel, hop aroma and flavor popping juuuust a little less.

Another winner from Deschutes. 2014 experimental addition. Pours cloudy pale amber. Smaller head and less lacing. Smells of sweet malts, mango and cypress. Taste is malt forward with a pine middle and ending with floral hop bitterness. Nice balance and a hop head fan favorite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At the Big Texas Beer Fest on 4/5/2014. Draft pours neon orange with almost no head that goes away. Aroma is earthy hops. Taste is bitter earthy with some light floral notes. Cardboard sweet malt. It is a little bitter for me.

Pours with fine bubbles with a thick white head. Immediate mild pine hop taste. With a mild lingering flavor that continues when you inhale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Fresh bottle. Pours orange/gold with white head. Aroma is citrus, floral, pine, grass. Taste is a combination of all of those. The malt doesn’t make much of an impression here. Not the caramel/toffee tones I get with some DIPAs. Still, quite refreshing. Clear and crisp flavors. I want more.

Crash_the_dog (181) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Thin pale color with virtually no head on tap. Typical flavor for the style with a slight alcohol burn. Nice beer, but nothing extraordinary for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light gold with a thin lasting head. Aroma and taste are straight forward for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
