by Mike on May 4, 2010

Today Deschutes Brewery’s announced through their Twitter account that “The last of the Hop Henge is on the shelf, so get it while you can. Next up in the Bond St. Series: Hop in the Dark!”

Hop Henge is a blend of carastan, crystal, and pale malts forms a biscuity characteristic that is muscular and dense, building the alcohol base to support the monstrous hop profile. (8.75% alcohol by volume).

Hop In the Dark (available May to September) There is a subtle undertone of coffee from the blend of oats with dark, Munich and crystal malts.  Cascade, Citra, and Cetennial hops bring out a classic IPA flavors and aromas.

Can an IPA be black?  Semantics aside, this noir version adds deep roasted malts to alter the hue and slightly smooth the edges.  What emerges is something deeper, less orthodox, and all its own.

Hop in the Dark is the latest member to join Deschutes Brewery’s Bond Street Series, just one of a vast family of beers the Brewery has invited friends and critics to sample at their Pubs. These local favorites, old and new, are brewed in small batches a few times a year, displaying Deschutes Brewery’s diversity and creativity. Deschutes Brewery invites beer lovers everywhere to take the plunge – a hop, if you will – into this new Cascadian Dark Ale.
