Notes/Commercial Description:
Hoppy Boy India Pale Ale is Twisted Pine Brewing Company’s flagship beer. With a rocky ivory head, star-bright golden orange color, and massive hop aroma, Hoppy Boy is the quintessential American IPA. Citrus, resin, and a hint of malt not only greet your nose, but also your taste buds, while a smooth, lingering bitterness leaves your palate refreshed with every sip. Hoppy Boy IPA is a perfect marriage of malts and hops that is as bold as it is balanced, and thus exemplifies what American craft beer is all about.

This poured out as an orange color with a decent sized white head on top. The retention and lacing were really nice on this beer for sure. The smell of the beer had some decent hop aromas but also had some off aromas in there too that weren't all that appealing. The taste followed the nose, its had some funky earthy musty flavors with some piney hop flavors in there also. Strange flavors but not terrible. The mouthfeel was pretty good, soft, gently carbonated and drinkable. Overall it's a decent brew just wasn't sure about some of the flavors it had. It's still probably worth trying if you're interested.

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

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance – This one has a big, white head, too foamy actually, with a thin, light orange, weak=-ooking body.

Smell – It’s pine alright and little else.

Taste – It’s namesake resiny pine is there but no malt whatsever. This beer is very one-dimensional.

Mouthfeel – This is a little better than light-bodied with some mild bitterness.

Dirnkability – Not a bad ale but nothing of substance.

Serving type: bottle
