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.

Bottled. Pours a clear light amber with a thick cream head. The aroma is hoppy and sweet. The taste is pretty smooth, medium body with a dry finish. Overall mild with a light hop character, not bad.

Appearance - hazy orange color Aroma - not much at all Mouthfeel - medium carb bite. Smooth Taste - very light. Like a super light IPA. Smooth and light weight start but almost nothing at the end. Funky aftertaste. Overall - kinda sucks. A bit boring. Seems almost like a pale ale with boring and funky aftertaste. This sucks.

CanIHave4Beers (3310) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours a golden color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is crystal malt forward with grassy and citrusy hops, some sort of weird stinkiness lingers in the background... but it’s tricky to name.

The flavor isn’t half bad, it’s nicely bitter... it’s not overly sweet, s’got some lime and orage citrus, some grassiness. A bit much on the caramel malt.

Didn’t hate it, wouldn’t buy it again...
Is obviously a shelf beer.

BeerViking (2496) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2013
On tap. Amber with a fluffy off-white head, aromas of pine and a little citrus, then a big malt and citrus body with a touch of herby wintergreen in the finish. Well balanced and very tasty - an excellent example of a classic near-historical IPA with an American twist.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Golden amber color and clear with a lacy white head. Citrus fruit, pine, grass, earthy and bitter. Similar flavor with some sweet caramel malts balancing things out. Medium bodied with a lingering finish. Not bad.

Bottle; poured a clear and dull orange. Oroma of earth, caramel, citrus and orange. Crisp flavor; some nice hoppiness with good balance of caramel. Solid.

dalekliz (875) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a murky amber with a foamy white head that leaves a lot of lacing behind. Aroma of sweet citrus hops, malt, sugar, and a hint of pine. Taste is mild, a little bitter, of clean citrus hops, orange peel, and a little malt. Lingering watery bitterness. Drinkable but too light.

The aroma is very nice much like an English style IPA. Likes nice too, hazy amber with a thin white head. Something in the taste was off. Some weird metallic tang. Thin finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nimbleprop (4896) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2013
16oz can pours a translucent, burnt orange with some creamy, white head. Nose is noticeably piney - even from a few feet away, very soapy, some orange peel, a little grapefruit peel too. Flavor is fairly standard, mostly orange peel, some lemon, pine, caramel, a little cracker, some soap. Medium, slightly bitter finish. Not an award winner, but just fine as is.
