Grand Teton Trout Hop Black IPA
From Grand Teton – 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.
Grand Teton Brewing – Grand Teton Trout Hop Black IPA – 750 ml bottle poured into a pint glass. 8.5% abv. Purchased at Beverages and More Pasadena,CA.
Appearance: Pours a dark cola brown with a thin white film of head. Leaves spotty lacing.
Aroma: Cat pee, cola, with some herbal minty notes.
Taste: Bitter grapefruit hop, big dark roast that finishes with a sour-ish twang.
Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy, slightly creamy.
Overall: A bit roasty for my liking, but I loved the level of hops.
