Oregonian’s know hops…good ones…found in one of the many craft brews created throughout the state. Oregon has more craft breweries per capita than other other state, and the enthusiasm continues to grow. Why? The incredible nature’s bounty in an Oregon brewers back yard, like incredible heirloom hops. One of the best from Deschutes Brewery, located in the heart of Oregon, named after the Deschutes River (a fly fisherman’s paradise,) can be found right now at a handful of Sigel’s locations. I received this note today and am running to grab some….
Deschutes Brewery Hop Henge IPA

First brewed in 2006, Deschutes Brewery’s Hop Henge Experimental IPA reappears this year with more extreme hop flavors than ever before. The new formulation is the epitome of the brewery’s experimental style and commitment to innovation, while gratifying their unquenchable thirst for beautifully balanced hoppy beers. The newest incarnation of Hop Henge uses several new hop processes and techniques to create a truly unique and unexpected beer. Several pounds of Centennial & Cascade hops are in each barrel with a heavy dry-hop presence to top it off. A blend of crystal, pale and carastan malts creates an overall biscuity characteristic that is dense and muscular, building the alcohol base to support the monstrous hop profile.
