Trout Hop Black IPA is a spicy and bold American-Style India Black Ale, with notes of fresh pine needles and spruce tips. Brewed with Idaho 2-Row Brewers’ Malt and German specialty malts, this ale has a deep rich color and roasted finish but is not as thick as some malty brews. Hopped with Zeus, Chinook, Galena, and Cascades from Idaho, as well as Summit, Lemon Drop and Mandarina Bavaria, the resulting bitterness is bold and intense, the aroma piney and zesty.
The full body and dry finish create a refreshing winter ale, perfect for any crisp afternoon or cool evening. The spicy hops of this ale complement bold, flavorful foods. Chocolate mole enchiladas, Indian and Thai curries, and barbeque ribs will go nicely.
