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.

supposedly 145 ibus, this is a dark, rich, monster of a beer that ended up being quite enjoyable, but again - overpriced. thick, resinous, with bright hop complexity and enough dark roasty malt to balance but not overpower. just a good beer all around."

A great little back IPA. Pours a dark brown with milky mocha head. Aromas are pine and citrus. Bitter chocolate flavors with fresh green hop notes. Delicious.

joeneugs (5850) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours black with a tan head. The aroma has really nice chocolate and roast with intense piney and citrusy hops. Good balance of the two contrasting aromas. The flavor is the same. Nice chocolate and roasted malt with intense piney, woody, citrus hops. It finishes mostly bitter, but with some roasted coffee as well. A very nice Black IPA

Pours black with an aroma of coffee, malt , and some hops. Flavor is more like a hoppy porter. Not a lot of hops but has the sweetness and coffee flavor of a good porter with more hops. I enjoyed it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A sweet thick sugary stout aroma. Very black in color. Quite roasty with a fair amount of hops but it just wasn’t working for me. May be done with style for awhile.

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.
