This beer pours a clear orange with a copious head and lasting lace. It's aroma is of banana with hints of orange and dough. The flavor is citrus with banana and orange notes with a hint of vanilla in the finish. The mouthfeel is light and smooth. Trout River Hoppin Mad Trout Ale is a decent beer, a curious cross between a witbier and a hefeweizen. Slightly recommended.

Orangish and clear. Tons of active carbonation. Huge head. Smells weird. Funky. Sour. No date on the bottle. Maybe old or mistreated? Hop profile seems tainted. (I hope, cause it sucks). This brew seems more like a pilsner. A poor one. Underwhelming, not enjoyable. Damn. Its been a bad beer tasting night, I need a Two Hearted to wash this one down.

A- Honey colored body with a very thin white head that disappears quickly.

S- Toasted pale malt, almost a pilsner like aroma.

T- Really just some toasted malt with a lager flavor in the back. Not a whole lot going on.

M- Light bodied, medium carbonation, pretty drinkable.

O- Not very good. Not a whole lot going on.

2.81/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: misty amber with an orangish edge; there is a half finger white head and not much on the lacing front

Aroma: some kind of floral-herbal fruit tea, apricot, and grassy

Flavors: dirty apricot, strange floral-herbal notes, I really don’t care what the other flavors might be for what I taste is strange – the flavors just come together if a very weird dimension.

Mouthfeel: strange and dirty apricot feel, moderate carbonation, low bitterness, some sweet toasted grains

To the Point: I just … I just … don’t know what to say. The amount of floral in aroma threw me off but, I was interested. The flavor – just strange. So, just skip this beer.
