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.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. A hazy amber beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is lovely grassy hoppy which also lends it notes of pine needles and citrus. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy which primarily gives it notes of grass and pine needles, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle, 22 oz. It forms a dense fingerthick off-white head over a clear, dark golden body. The initial aroma has lots of citrus peel, but soon pine cones and a malty sweetness kicks in. It’s a tad sweet on the palate, lightly malty, but still the hops win easily. Bitterness, pine cones, resins and a grass touch shows up. Full body, semi-sweet, with a nice carbonation level. Lasting finish with a tad too much sweetness. Some metallic hints too. Overall, sure decent, but too much on the malty side. 140512

Hazy amber with a big fluffy head. Average hop aroma is accented towards orangey-piney. Mild bitterness and a bit of earthiness. Lacks brightness and style.
