COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppin’ Mad Trout is brewed as an India Pale Ale. It has a smooth, toasted malt flavor dominated by hops. A distinct flowery aroma and a clean, dry finish round out this ale.

Pour is mid-amber, medium white head that quickly diminishes, but leaves decent lacing. Aroma is malty, with light chocolate being the main standout. Flavor is mixed with light chocolate and other various mild malt flavors, ends with minimal hop presence. Body is medium. Not all the impressive to me.

Bottled version. Somewhat of a darker golden color, but cloudy. Some head, but didn't stay long. A little fruit in the nose, but where are the hops??? A malty taste to it, but where are the hops??? The beer is fairly smooth to drink, but I don't know how it is classified as an IPA. More of a summer day beer.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Had it on tap, godlen amber color with very nice lace. Very mild hoppy aroma with slight fruit tones. Starts off somewhat creamy and a little malty and quickly turns to a slightly hoppy somewhat upleasant tinge. Very lacking on hops for an IPA, very lacking on flavor for a beer. Leaves a mettalic/skunky/slightly dry fininish. Wont be gettin this one again.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 25, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 Pours hazy orange with a huge dense and quickly diminishing head. Fake easty aroma, fizzy palate. Not really bitter at all. Hardly an IPA and pretty bland.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2002
Orange-golden amber. Rocky white head, with moderate lacing. Bready floral aroma. Light to medium bodied. Roasted malt flavor, slight carbonation, and slightly dry finish. Not overly hopped, not too bitter. Nothing extraordinary, but very quaffable. Mediocre IPA.

07/01 Hoppy enough, but smoother going down and on the finish than most IPAs I’ve had. The opaque amber/orange body is beautiful, but there is little for the nose to appreciate. Decent. 06/02 this brewer’s beers just keep getting weaker and weaker; really find the body on this to be lacking, and it really isn’t ’hoppy enough’ now after a year of finding many more challenging IPAs. Avoid, as you should all Trout Rivers.

Good dry hop bitterness…Its frail body evokes that of a white wine…A wooden character as well…An honest I.P.A….

Pours with little head and little carbonation. I like the unfiltered aspects and haziness of this golden beer. Aroma is only slight but appetizing. Doesn’t drink like most IPAs I’m used to. Slightly toasty , unique bitterness and lacking hop flavor and aroma. Finish is crisp and clean and unique. Probably better closer to the source.
