First Taste: Deschutes 2012 Hop Henge Experimental IPA

Though the 2012 edition of Hop Henge Experimental IPA was released about a week ago, it’s just now finding its way to retailers’ shelves. For a double IPA, the 2012 version pours more golden than expected, though there is a nice orange hue that is made visible when held up to a bright light.
