COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy Boy India Pale Ale is the flagship beer of Twisted Pine. It has a rocky white head, hazy pale orange color, and hoppy citrus aroma. It has a dry, tart taste with an earthy bitterness. Cascade hops provide pleasant grapefruit and citrus notes. This classic American IPA is brewed with medium caramel malts that play off the citrus and orange rind hop flavors to make this beer most enjoyable.

Can. Pours amber with small head. Nose and flavor are piney with a little bit sweetness.

Not good. This is a mess. A sweet weird mess. No hops to be heard of, this tastes like hot garbage. If this is their flagship beer I weep for their other beers. This is so sweet it’s borderline undrinkable. I rarely meet a beer I can’t drink but this is terrible. Would it kill you to add some hops? This is bad. Can’t do it, I’m about to pour this trash and grab myself a real IPA.

Nice in flavour. Not much in other featurs. It was well brewed but a little not too thick. Enjoyable it was.

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a white head. Bitter hop and citrus aroma. Flavor is malty at the front which is odd, but moves to a slightly bitter and grassy finish.

Bottle, screw-top. Nose has wooden/piny notes with spicy and rugged caramel, some dull but chewy and earthy toffee, mild grapefruit/Cascade. Golden gradient pour with a dense off-white head. Taste medium bitter, but very smooth and rounded, no brutish or thuggish character at all, but the very full doughy caramel does feel neutered, and there’s not enough carbonation or zinging tartness to compensate. Very mildly tart, fresh, but overall sort of a blanket of depression.

Le look classique: une robe orangée et une mousse presque généreuse. Un nez classique: des malts caramel sur un fond de Cascade. Rien de déplaisant. Par contre, je dirais que c’est un peu facile. Sur les papilles, un combat davantage mené par les malts. Le houblon occupe la deuxième position et même il pourrait descendre sur la troisième place du podium. Je ne crois pas que c’est une question de fraîcheur. Je crois plutôt que s’en est un de recette, tout simplement. Au palais, un beau corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement équilibré et une texture crémeuse. En finale, des notes parfumées et sucrées de houblons fruités. Tout compte fait, un gros bof. Plusieurs éléments m’empêchent d’être totalement enthousiaste.
