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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 6, 2012
750ml bottle. Dark reddish brown with a long lasting, light tan head with some lacing. Aroma of cocoa, citrus, pine and coffee. Flavor of dry, bitter cocoa, citrus hops and no alcohol taste. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry, bitter finish. Really nice Black IPA, bottle was around 1 year old but still holding up nicely.

AirForceHops (2712) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 1, 2012
750 ml bottle Vintage 2010. Stamp says, bottled 30 Jun 2010. Picked up @ Julio’s Liquor’s about 8 months ago. Murky brown color with red showing around the edges. Aromas of pine needles, large amounts of citrus and roasted malt. Sweet roasted malt mixed with a nice balance of hops. No doubt at this points the hops are muddled due to the age. However, Not a problem for me. Newer bottle would have more pungent/ bolder hop profile. Even with a lower hop punch, it still lingers after the sip. Medium body with average carbonation. Overall, I should have drunk this right after purchase. That being said, It is still respectable and enjoyable.
