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.

Bottled. Pours deep black with a medium tan head. Aromas of citrusy grapefruit rind, pine and coffee. Hops dominate with pine, grapefruit. The flavors are more complex with chocolate, dark cherry and roasted malts. It finishes with lingering hops and burnt malt. I would buy this one again.

StefanSD (2015) - Lakeside, California, USA - NOV 9, 2010
750 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours an opaque black color with a medium tan head that slowly recedes to 1/4 inch and holds leaving plenty of sticky lacing. The nose is moderate in strength with hoppy IPA aromas of citrus, pine and toffee. The flavor is biter hops forward with smooth pine, grapefruit, biter chocolate and roasted malts. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering biter hops and burnt barley malts. Overall: Very tasty black IPA. Love this style.

deyholla (5975) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Bottle thank to Brian! Poured a hazy dark brown with a light brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of roasted malt with a pine hop and a slight sweet chocolate backing. Flavor had a lighter chocolate with some roasted malt and a slight backing pine.

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Bomber bottle. Pour is black brown color with a kahki head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is a solid mix of bittering hops and malt. Taste is more creamy malt, but the hops really do come through and leaves a citrus and carmel flavor in the end. Palate is full and creamy which ends in a fizzy chaulky finish. Pretty enjoyable.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Tap @ The Sushi Bar, McCall, ID: Pours a pitch black color with a nice tan head. The nose is nicely roasted with a fair slap of hop in the aroma, more earthy and smoky than citrusy. Moderate bitterness and pine in the flavor with an underlying coffee-rich fruit forward stout; roasty and toasty. The finish is a little sweet, but it’s balanced. Good.

Taverner (1076) - San Ramon, California, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Bottle dated July 2010. Pours a cola brown with off white/tan head that leaves small hints of lacing. Nice charcoal bitter flavor, coffee like. Finishes dry - decent. Nothing to fancy though.

FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2010
On tap at Sheffields. Pours deep brown nearly black with a two fingers creamy light tan head. Aroma is roasted chocolate malt, piney hops, a touch of burnt toast. Flavor is a bit more piney, still very heavily roasted chocolate and bready malts. Decent smooth finish, a toucb bitter. Medium body and a softer carbonation. Alright black IPA

hapjydeuce (922) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
On tap at OBriens Pub. Pours black with dark brown edges. Little head and medium carbonation. Aroma of fresh green hops. Resinous hop flavor with good bitterness. Roasted malt provides good background with a sweet finish on the end. Overall, this is nothing like Black Lie or Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous, but impressive nevertheless. Has a fruitier tone with more ester flavors, more so than other black IPAs Ive tried.
