Press Release: Hop Henge Imperial IPA – The Ultimate in Hop Innovation

Woo hoo! Hop Henge! This hasn’t been out since, what, 2006? (Although the Brewery site says there was one in 2007… where was I?!?)

Deschutes Brewery’s Hop Henge Imperial IPA returns to the Bond Street Series line-up this April in extreme fashion. Staying true to the experimental nature of the series and the “never settle” philosophy of Deschutes, our brewers went back to the drawing board to create an amplified version of last year’s monument to hops.

Head Brewer Brett Porter says, “This is a truly exciting and groundbreaking beer. We reformulated everything about the hop recipe to give Hop Henge an extraordinary aroma and flavor similar to a fresh hop beer.” In addition to the Cascade and Centennial hops, Deschutes Brewery is experimenting with a hop variety so new that it has yet to be named.

The team at the Bend Deschutes Brewery and Public House recommends Hop Henge as the perfect accompaniment for a variety of spicy foods, so be sure to have a bottle handy next time you make a batch of hot wings and go for the five alarm award. The high-octane hoppiness is a wildly refreshing antidote to a wide array of hot foods.

Hop Henge Imperial IPA will be available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft throughout the western United States for just three months – April, May & June. Don’t miss this amazing hop experiment that is sure to leave your taste buds begging for more.
