I have planned to dry hop my porter. What do you think about dry hopping porters?

For me, a porter is about the caramels and too much hop aroma interferes with the beer. If you read the threads about the early attempts at CDAs, you find that many people feel the same way, dark malts and hoppy don't play well.

I say dry hop.

Try it. If you like it, keep doing it. If you don't like it, lesson learned.

I did a mild a short while ago which, according to style, should have little or no hop aroma. So? I like hop aroma so I dry hopped. Just a bit and for a short time. Adds a nice nose.

There is such things as india porters. It was in a recent issue of beer advocate. Apparently only the higher ups really drank ipa while the fighters drank hopped up porters. Don't quote me on the facts, its been a while since I've read it.
