Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
With an immense hop flavor and bitter finish, this monumental IPA is an enigma worth pondering (see what we did there?). Centennial, Chinook, Cascade, and Galaxy hops come together to create a hop sanctuary. Revere the almighty hop!

This is their new version of Hop Henge Imperial IPA, the hops have been modified as of 1/2009.

IBU: 97

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a glass tulip. Best by 04.04.18 on label.

A: Burnished amber with 1-finger off-white head with average retention and lacing.

S: Dank, meaty-umami hop aroma with a lot of light-medium crystal malt character. Hops are also minty and herbal with some honeysuckle qualities.

T: Flavor is on the sweeter side with a lot of medium crystal malty sweetness and kilned melanoidin flavors coupled with pine, pineapple, and a grassy finish. Moderately bitter. Alcohol character is present mainly in the finish but seems less than the old days.

M: A bit sticky and heavy with medium-high body and medium carbonation. Not super drinkable, especially when you put the alcohol character in there.

O: Not one of Deschutes’ strongest offerings. Needs to be overhauled (again) with a lot less crystal malts, a toned down alcohol character, and a less muddled hop profile.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a white head. Smells of hops, caramel, malt, and citrus. Tastes of bitter hops, citrus zest, tropical fruits, pine, booze, and sweet malts. Medium resinous body with medium carbonation. Overall a very good DIPA.

Clightly cloudy amber with significant white head that disipates quickly. Very mild hoppy aroma. Taste is a bitter hoppy that is nothing special. I am disappointed
