12 oz bottle

Fairly typical IPA presentation,and leaves some nice fine high lacing.

Mildly hop fueled nose.

On the palate, its oranges, pine,and hop resins.

Citric/tropical/pine battle going on and I like it.

Better then decent AIPA.

A"pleasant" ipa at best. The bitter aftertaste remained so long it pretty much took away any enjoyment. All bitterness without any real flavor. The mouthfeel was really poor. Wouldn't turn it down but glad I just bought a single. I like Hoppy Boy better.

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.

Nice very hoppy ipa. Just a hint of fruit flavors and you can taste the layers of different hops. This was a really surprising and pleasant IPA.

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.

Solid all around. Great nose, taste is the same. Tropical fruits, citrus, some zest, and a sutle dankness.
