This new beer from Twisted Pine Brewing really takes Hops to a new level. The strong California style hops bring this to a great taste in the mouth. The color and smell all add to the excitement of drinking this new IPA. After drinking this beer, you might find Hoppy Boy the flagship IPA to be mild. Love the citrusy flavor.

3.51/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a orangeish medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam.

S- Grassy, piney (surprise, surprise) hop aroma with some sweet malt backing.

T- Moderate bitterness and some leafy hop flavor plus a decent malt backbone. The hops end up being a bit generic and almost plastic-y. The malt sweetness does its best to try and maintain some character but ends up failing.

M- Lingering hop bite with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- I had high hopes for this one since the score was actually decent for a Twisted Pine beer...if you're on the fence about it, don't buy it. Much better IPAs out there.

One of the best Colorado IPAs that you can buy in stores. On the sweeter, hop-forward side with light malt.

3.83/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Dirty burnt amber color with an eggshell colored head. A film of retention with pretty good lacing.

Aroma: Malty, spicy, fruity, with a finishing hoppy note.

Taste: More bitter from the start than the nose suggests. The malts are submerged under all of the citrus and hops. Wood and spice notes are present. A lot of bitter grapefruit rind in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy, dry.

Overall: Pretty balanced with just about every typical IPA flavor in it somewhere. Very bitter.
