Twisted Pine Hoppy Boy is a cloudy, orange- colored brew and a good pour creates a nice amount of foam that holds its own for a couple of minutes. The nose on this beer is one of bread, light hops, and toffee/caramel and not too bad, although not very pronounced either.
This is a bready IPA and a little milder than expected. There are flavors of bread, biscuits, pine, and some citrus in the background. A small amount of herbal character is there, too, and it’s a little more noticeable as the beer warms.
As for an IPA, this product isn’t has hop dominant as I expected and its mouthfeel is a little light. It isn’t a bad product at all, though- it just doesn’t rate as highly on my IPA scale as other examples of the style. Still good enough to at least try- some will like it, others will find it a tad too basic. I like it overall and it seems like a good beer to serve guests who are not usually accepting of IPA beers in general.

3.26/5 rDev -1.8%

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.
The beer pours a hazy orange-gold with a 2-finger head that quickly compacts to a thin, foamy top that leaves some lingering lacing.
The aroma is pretty muted: some grass and citrus and an earthy note underneath.
The taste is not bad. Bright an bitter up front from the piney hops, a little spice and citrus with a lingering piney dryness. Not detecting much from the malts.
I like the mouthfeel on this beer, medium, a little sticky and even slightly creamy. This is an easy drinking IPA but it lacks complexity.

A: Pours an opaque orange/straw color with a white head.
S: Pine comes through the strongest, alongside sweet, nectary fruits, some orange, some more tropical notes, in the nose.
T: Pine, sweet mango, a touch of pineapple, some orange. Lemon lingers along the edge of the palate.
M: Medium bodied and quite smooth.
O: Definitely recommended
