COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Trout Hop is brewed with Idaho 2-Row Brewers’ Malt and German specialty malts and has a deep, rich color and roasted finish without the thick and malty body that often accompanies dark beers. It is kettle hopped and dry hopped with Pacific Northwest hops, resulting in bold and intense bitterness and piney, zesty aroma. The full body and dry finish create a refreshing autumn ale, perfect for any crisp afternoon or cool evening. The spicy hopsof this ale complement rich, flavorful foods. Chocolate mole enchiladas, Indian and Thai curries, and barbeque ribs will accompany nicely.

Clear ish dark brown with a thin light tan head. The aroma has a light roastiness with a wee bit of floral/leafy/piney hop tone. Smooth flavor of dark sweet roastiness and a light grassy and earthy bitterness I can’t entirely pin down, except explaining it as leafy and earthy and balanced. Not too roasty or too bitter or acidic. A nice big but nuanced BIPA.

Decent but not memorable black IPA, decent aroma and taste, but no specific character rises above. Good, but not outstanding.

Lacking hops for an IPA, more like a porter with some hops. I love it, regardless of how it is classified. Very smooth for 8.5%. Great!!

Had a taste on tap at Craftsmen Tap House in Charleston. Totally reminiscent of a west coast IPA that happens to have dark malts for good measure. Color is dark but body is light. Decent head. Nose and taste is piney and citrus. Had a decent bitterness but balanced by dark, sweet malts. But sort of a mind trick with a lighter mouthfeel. Really interesting.
