Year of New Beer: Hop Henge Experimental IPA, Deschutes Brewery (OR)
Written By: Dion on 02/06/2014
Tropical fruits, sweet caramel malt, and hints of resinous pine hops on the nose. On the tongue, the fruits become almost candied in nature as the sweetness ramps up quite a bit. A drying hop bitterness never reaches the intensity level I was expecting, and a warming alcohol lingers on the palate. Not bad, but certainly not the best I've had from Deschutes.
