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.

Tall Boy 16 oz can, poured into a glass, light amber clear hue, creamy white diminishing head, minimal lacing, faint citrus juice smell, medium light body, seems watered down, some hop juice but something funky in the aftertaste and nose. Guys at the store sold it to me. My fault. I bought it. Meh

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 (13032) - 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 (3213) - 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 (1637) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2014
A fairly basic IPA. The usually hoppy nose and piney flavor. Good alcohol and balanced well.

bkurtz (920) - PERU - SEP 4, 2014
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.

kerenmk (2918) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Hazy blond with white head. Soft citrus aroma, then grain and some honey. Sourish and unpleasing, spoiled orange juice taste. Medium body, almost no carbonation, a little juicy finish.

Bottle--hazy, amber color with a large frothy head. Piney notes in the aroma with medium bitterness. Run of the mill IPA. Total wine.

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, citric and floral hops, a bit stale, and an acidic touch. Sourish flavor, kinda weird, with some citric hops, a bit stale and a bit "green" and some bitterness. Medium-bodied. The sourness is weird.
