The Brü Revü – Deschutes Hop Henge Experimental IPA

I do not have a lot of experience with Deschutes Brewery, so I decided to try the Hop Henge on a whim and I am happy I followed the instinct. It poured an orange gold with a decent head and loads of citrusy hops in the aroma. The taste began with a grapefruit hop profile with sweet vanilla malt tones and a slightly piney finish that lingered on the palate.  There malty spine kept the Hop Henge from becoming completely overwhelming and gave it the perfect balance to make this a fantastic IIPA. There was a medium to full body on that made the brew satisfying and well rounded.  The Hop Henge is Deschutes’ attempt at making a truly hoptastic brew and they have definitely succeeded.
