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.

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.

Leighton (21083) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (19198) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Hotel room breakfast tasting with Jack & Leighton, Hilton Tampa, 22/02/15. Golden orange with a moderate off white covering. Nose is caramel malt, light pine, bitter citric peel. Taste is caramel malt forward, orange, light pine, toasted malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so - generic old skook brew pub malt driven IPA affair.

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
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.

yngwie (17038) - 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

bhensonb (15088) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours dark gold with a multifinger foamy off-white head. Lots of hop aroma - seems to be mixed citrus/pine. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is fruity/floral hop over light malt. It is just excellent. Quite tasty.

2.7
DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - 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.
