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.

[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy golden-orange with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, bread, citrus hops, citrus peel and finally, earthy and herbal notes. Flavour of caramel malt, resiny hops, citrus, light vegetal notes and a long bitter finish -- hops mostly come through in the finish. Medium bodied. Something doesn’t quite gel here, it’s just decent.

Theydon_Bois (13459) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Hotel room breakfast tasting with Jack & Leighton, Hilton Tampa, 22/02/15. Golden orange with a moderate off white covering. Nose is caramel malt, light pine, bitter citric peel. Taste is caramel malt forward, orange, light pine, toasted malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so - generic old skook brew pub malt driven IPA affair.

TXBadger (2003) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2015
Pours a light coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malt, light citrus, and funky pine notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt than hop.

DrunkSanta410 (677) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a copper color, white head, dissipates into a thin laced film. Aroma is caramel malts, orange and citrusy hops. Taste is slightly earthy, citrusy hops, lots of cracker and caramel malts. Malts overpower the hops, finishes with an underwhelming bitterness. Palate is medium body, high carbonation. Malts wash out some good favors in this one. Below average IPA.

Leighton (14705) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle shared during RBWG 2015. Pours clear orange gold with a frothy white head. Pale bread in the aroma, rindy orange. Medium sweet flavor with crackery pale malts, old pine needles, citrus peel, metal. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Boring finish, perhaps a bit aged, with dusty pine, leaves, dry citrus, more crackers. So so.

Not your prototypical ipa but I kind of enjoyed it. Soft but passable hop aroma w/ a clear golden pour & thin white head. The taste has an underlying bitterness but isn’t dry & is quite drinkable. I understand the low scores for the style but found it to be a decent beer overall!

SpringsLicker (3266) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Hazy dark gold/amber with a tall, sticky white head. Fruity citrus hop aroma. The flavor is mostly bitter but there is a good malt support balancing this out nicely. Good solid IPA.

Block (1762) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2014
A fairly basic IPA. The usually hoppy nose and piney flavor. Good alcohol and balanced well.

Pours a hazy golden with a smallish, but lasting head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit. Aromas continue in the taste. Little bitterness and finishes light. I like it.
