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.

Botnik (142) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 5, 2009
12oz bottle from a variety pack. Amber with a thin off white head. With plenty of good IPAs on the market, this one will be easy to forget.

Tap at brewery during GABF 2009.
Pours a watery yellow with an aroma and taste of corn flakes. Watery mouthfeel. This beer is liquified corn flakes; perhaps a bad batch?

12 ounce bottle from College Liquors. Pours a bright orange color with a sticky white head. A rich caramel and spicy hop aroma. The flavor is very nice; loads of bitter pine hops, rich caramel. A bitter caramel finish. Nice. Fruity.

Tejas (872) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2009
48 rating? Hmmm, my bottle must be better than others b/c I think this is pretty good. Very green piney fresh flavors. Easy drinker. Head crashed early and palate was a tad thin but still good.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light copper with a nice head and good lace. Aroma is toffee, pine, light minty, mild bubblegum and fruity esters- also some dough and marzipan. Flavor is slight citrus, light dried pine needle, green grassy mints, orange zest, and a moderate to mild bitterness- some cracker as well. Perhaps a bit old. Average at best.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Hazy yellowish copper color. Very generous and fragrant head. Nose is the thing for this beer. Big Christmas spices nose with pine. Think Christmas pudding, or spice cake. Very appetizing nose. Given the wonderful nose this beer is a little disappointing on the palate. A mellow/weakish malt character and slightly sharp but tame hoppiness is all there is. Unexciting. With a nose like this, you have to give us more!

( 12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) Pours pale, nice bubbles, nose honey hops, taste is also honey forward. Needs carbonation and has a bitter linger.
