I was so excited to try Troon beers. They are only the next town over and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to try them.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Troon Brewing is located in beautiful Hopewell, NJ on the sprawling property of Double Brook Farm. The brewery is housed in one of the original barns here, built in the mid-1800’s, and every effort was taken to preserve the historic features of the building. We are also on the same property as the Brick Farm Tavern where you will find a constantly rotating selection of our beers that are meant to be drunk fresh, on tap. Our barrel fermented ales will be available naturally conditioned in bottles. Please note that the only beer we pour at the brewery is in growlers for off-site consumption, so if you are visiting the property and do not desire a fill please go to the Tavern for full pours and tastings.”
Random: The food at the tavern was amazing. If you’re in the area, it’s highly recommended.
The beer poured with a quarter of a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was hazy yellow with no carbonation visible. The nose had huge amounts of fresh citrus juice with some grass hops and green pepper notes. The taste was amazingly bright. It had a lot of tropical fruit. Specifically, I got pineapple and mango with argula and cucumber. There was also freshly cut grass at the end of the sip. The body was a perfect thickness with moderate carbonation. The finish was swift with citrus. This beer was perfection in a glass. I would search this one out immediately.
