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, 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.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Sampler at Twisted Pine. Appearance: slight white head, good lace, golden yellow, clear. Aroma: floral, caramel, nut. Palate: sticky texture, light body, very bitter and metallic finish. Taste: sweet caramel, blends to nice bitterness growing to too bitter and finishing metallic. Overall, very unique IPA, do not like the metallic, but other than that it is pretty neat.

Bottle; nice orangish copper look. This is a good representation of what one should expect with an IPA. Malt hop balance is very good. Very nice aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
