Deschutes Hophenge

type: "experimental" IPA (another in the Bond Street series)
origin: Bend, OR
price: $6/22oz
abv: 9%

I'm fairly disappointed here. Surely, this is a fine craft from a fine brewery, and I had this at the Beagle a while back, which I remember really enjoying. Now, not so much. Really, it's a little too bitter and a little too sweet, so the high alcohol content is on full display. The hops are seemingly imbalanced, but maybe that explains the "experimental" nature of the beast. Having said that, I guess after a 22 at 9% I could not care less.

The first in a series of BeerPhoto Art-haus shots.
