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.

Poured from the bottle into one of my shaker glass’. Pours dark brown almost black. thin tan head with lots of lacing. Aroma is all hops! Flavour is bitter up front, really nice hop flavours. Then finishes totally roasty. I love Black Ipa’s, and usually they are more roast, or more hops, but this one seems very well balanced! One of the best Grand Teton beers I’ve had!! Now that I’ve gone black, I can’t go back!!!

Bottled 11/5/10. Perfumed, malty aroma and black walnut color are hints of the rich complex flavors in Trout hop. Malt is dark but not overly toasted. Hops make an appearance, but after three years of bottle conditioning, the most significant contribution is bitterness sufficient to balance malt sweetness somewhat. Malt character is prominent. Though ABV is 8.5% there is also quite a bit of estery expression.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Bottle at Village Pizza in Estes Park. Nearly black pour with a big frothy tan head that laces thickly. Aroma of mostly roasted malt and some pine. Big, rich flavor of roast, chocolate and pine. Medium-full bodied and really smooth. Excellent.

This is the first Black IPA I’ve ever tried. I’m a hop head, so I couldn’t resist. Really interesting flavors. Pours black like a stout, with a nice little head. Aroma is coffee and hops - floral like. Taste is a mix of a porter and IPA to my tastes. Very rich coffee like flavors with a wonderful hop bite on top! I dig it! Highly recommended for hop heads looking for something different. Second time I’ve purchased it.

IndianaRed (5041) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 14, 2010
On tap at Brewforia Meridian, ID. Pours a clear dark brown with a dense rich light tan head. Sweet roasted aroma with soft sweet pine hop notes. The dark roasted flavors are rich, robust but much less astringent and biting as I expected. Very full and flavorful. Slight IBU bitter bite at the end. Very tasty.

This is a very good black IPA - the best I’ve tasted. Pours a rich, deep brown with an ecru head and persistent lacing. Nose is pine, coffee and citrus. Taste is just the right blend of hops and malt with a citrus kicker at the back end. Mouthfeel is lush and the finish bitter with scallops of sweetness.
